The never-ending battle..

Today to share something with you that has nothing to do with my latest photoshoot, I would like to bring up the somewhat endless question: heels or flats? Now, to some of you this may be a very simple matter.. I have a few acquaintances who live their lives with the motto "anything you can do, I can do while wearing stilettos". But to be honest, they're usually really short girls.

And I've envied them for as long as I remember, because they get away with it. They can be strutting around in the middle of the afternoon wearing the craziest skyscrapper heels and no one will be all like "wtf?". But when a tall girl does this, it blows up in her face.

On the other hand, we get away with all flat footwear almost absentmindedly. And I love some of the flat shoes I own, I really do.. and they're a godsend when I'm running around town all day livin' the life. But to be frank, nothing is as lovely as the perfect heels. Nothing quite right completes the outfit. So I save them for those special nights (and for cab rides)..


Which side are you on?

I'm 5'9 too but it just seems like sometimes I'm too intimidating when I whip out the big guns (talking about heels here obviously;)) but I guess you're right sweetie! I mean, if it's got the look, it's got the look.. I have this favorite quote from Rumi I'll gladly use here: "Other people don't dress to please me, why should I dress to please other people?" God, I love her!

I wear boots almost every effing day. I walk and take bart/bus EVERYWHERE so heels just arent going to cut it. I feel like I cant get shit done when I walk around in heels all day. But hey, if thats your thing, rock it i guess. Im just more of a realist I suppose.

i wish i could wear heels everyday but they are less comfortable, and occasionally people look at you like are heels really necessary? hahahahah, i just stick to heels when going out

I suppose I actually want to wear heels more than I actually wear them :))

I vote for flats, more comfortable for daily wear.
