As you all know I am 6'6" and love to rock a high heel. It is my firm belief that heels give you that extra PUMP (no pun intended:) of confidence. I personally rock a heel because flats just aren't my thing. I am not knocking people who wear them, but for me, flats live up to their title...flat:(
With this said, I was juiced this morning when I turned on my television and Ms. NeNe Leakes was on the today show professing the same love for a sexy heel. You have to watch this video! I felt like I was in church while I was watching it! Every thing she said made me hoop and holler. When she said "If I was 6'5" I would still wear a 6" heel," I did a lap around my apartment! And then...the thing that really sent me into a state of sheer joy...wait for it...SHE IS STARTING A LINE OF SHOES SIZE 9 - 13! I CAN'T WAIT! You know they are going to be fierce because NeNe wouldn't put anything out that was just "OK." It's not in her DNA.
Thank you NeNe. Thank you for telling millions of tall women that they can rock a mean heel and thank you for creating shoes that we can wear that don't look and feel like boats! I want to be your spokesperson, model, shoe tester etc. Whatever I can do to help the tall movement...I'm in 110% I am DEAD serious.
Until NeNe's line comes out, here's some spring11 hot ones to keep you busy:
