Heels make boys feel inadequate.

heh.

I'm wearing a pair of my favorite seven for all mankind jeans today, which, since I didn't have them altered, means that I need to be 5,11" for them to fit correctly. So I put on my favorite pair of heels - a little strappy number by micheal kors.

They are 4.5" of sweet heaven.

Well, I just walked downstairs with my friend (male) to get a cup of coffee. (yes, I do drink caffeine and 1 cup per day has been approved by my doc, so no need to scold me). As I was walking next to him, he just kept saying "that's not right". In line, he announced to everyone that I need to be "down to your real level" so everyone else knew I wasn't taller than him. No, he wasn't saying it meanly, but he was actually upset about it.

Whatever. I'm not taking them off to make him feel better. Who knew being tall had this much power?

LoL, I will never know what power it holds to be tall, but I do love a great pair of heels =)

As much as I hated being 5'9 at age 14...I kinda like it now ;).

Ah, there is really nothing better than some kick ass heels to make me feel fantastic. (Until of course I've worn them half an hour too long and start hobbling.)

I'm almost 5'10" WITHOUT heels, and I still LOVE throwing on a pair of the highest stilettos I can find! :)

After seeing SATC I'm suddenly feeling an urge to shop for very high-heeled -- and very expensive -- shoes! Although, for a shorty like me, they would just make me of average height, so I'll have to find different ways to intimidate men. ;)

Work those heels woman!

Well I'm 5'11 so maybe if I wore heels I would be a giant :-) I used to wear flats to all my high school dances because I always had a short date. I was so self consious of my height. But the good thing is now that I'm older I don't care if I'm taller than people :-) Your heels have me smiling, I love shoes!

I do the same thing with my favorite 7s -- didn't get them altered and always wear them with heels so my legs go on forever and ever.

If I had a great pair of Seven jeans and could walk in 4.5'' heels, I would do it all the time!!

I know what it is like to be that person who has to look up 3 feet to talk to you when you wear those shoes. I do think you should work it though! Just not when I have to stand next to you.
