So I’m taking creative liberty here to deviate from my usual health and fitness itinerary to write about something else that I love probably just as much…
Fun and unique fashion, cool, trendy clothes, and amazing high heels.
Oh those high heels.
My mother schooled me early in life that if I was going to wear them I’d learn to walk in them properly and not “like I just fell off a tractor” ( my mother had rather interesting, colorful ways of illustrating things for me 😛
Spending some time in modeling school pretty well sealed the deal on nailing “the walk”
I’m always amused when I come into a room and the first thing I can spot is someone looking at my feet…assessing how tall I am and if I have any assistance with it.
If I happen to be around a really tall man, there is a straightening of their posture as if trying to assess my height ( which is amusing 😉
I especially love little kids. They can be so delightfully obvious…for instance… this one little girl… she started at my feet and slowly looked all the way up to my eyes when she declared… “You’re so tall!”
And probably to a 6 year old… I most definitely was…
Why yes, I’m a tall girl. And yes, I can rock the heck outta high heels because well, I can and why not ?
I guess I’ve always been comfy in them and as far back as I can remember they’ve been a part of my wardrobe.
Oh, I did try a brief stint of wearing flats. I did.
I just can’t think if I’m wearing a pair of them… like my brain isn’t fully engaged or something… 😉
But… slipping into high heels… well that boys and girls… is a game changer.
There is something rather empowering about them, a “I can take charge of the world feeling”, and well hey, topping in at 6’4 , I have no problem seeing over people, getting what I want off a shelf, or helping random petite people who ask me to drag things off an upper shelf for them 😉
Oh yes, I’ve gotten the “don’t you think you’re tall enough?” comment said with a laugh
Tall enough for who? and really, who determined somewhere in that random book of societal rules ( that I threw out a long time ago) that if you’re tall you can’t wear heels ?
I don’t save them for special occasions either.. if I want to wear them.. I do.
It’s actually my perspective on pretty much anything fashion oriented. I don’t save stuff for special occasions.
Today… this day we’re given… IS a special occasion.
Of course, I had to share with you in this post some of my most favorite high heels. Here’s a sample of some …. 🙂
ok tell me… do you love heels? or do you prefer flats or other shoes? Sorry guys, I know this might limit convo for you 😉
