I went to dinner last night wearing some 4" suede platform pumps. With the beautiful shoes I was standing at 6'10" and I was OK with it but apparently some loud mouth at the restaurant wasn't. He walked up to me and said "what are you wearing those heels for?" Granted that was not the first time I have been asked that question but not only was his approach rude, I was also on the phone at the time so he interrupted my conversation. As you can imagine, I was not pleased with this man but I didn't want to stoop to his level of rudeness with what I really wanted to say, so I just told him;"Because I like cute shoes. These are cute, so I am wearing them. End of story." I then resumed my conversation on the phone and walked away.
The moral of the story is this: No matter how tall you are, ROCK WHATEVER SHOES YOU WANT. Flats, platforms, stilettos, whatever shoe you want to put on your feet, do it! There is no law that says you can't wear heels so do what makes you feel good. There is nothing wrong with being 7'1" and wearing 5" heels just like there is nothing wrong with being 4'11" and wearing flats. Do you! I know I will be this weekend, when I'm enjoyng my 3 day vacay wearing my size 12, gladiator, gun metal platforms that I got at Nordstrom Rack for $40! They zip up the front, are SUPER cute and I can't wait to wear them! And no one, I mean no one can tell me different!
Ladies, we are always going to be tall and fabulous, we might as well be tall and fabulous in some hot shoes!
