Too Tall to Date

So I was recently told that I was "too tall to date." I'm almost 5'11'' and LOVE being this tall. I've always had tall friends, so I've never given a second thought to putting on an awesome pair of 4" heels and just OWNING the tallness.

So when some douchey little - and I do mean little - architect man tells me I'm too tall to date when I am looking AMAZING, I decided to say a big f you him and went in the exact opposite direction. Which is what led to these:

5" heels. I thought I could handle them. I can't. I wore them last night and was holding onto tables in order to walk to the bathroom. If I hadn't had friends to hold my hand while I was walking down the stairs, who knows where I'd be today.

Don't get me wrong - the outfit was awesome and the shoes are glorious. But I don't think being unemployed is the best time to break an ankle and end up on the emergency room.

On the bright side, Jackson seems to love the shoes:

But Jackson is also loving me being unemployed, so he's not really the best judge...

Eww. Screw him! Wear those heels girl...even if they made you 8 feet tall, you gotta do what makes you feel confident and sexy, you know?

Lizzie--I am 6'1 and I love wearing heels! I broke my foot on some this summer and have had to take time off of them lately...but I just bought some cute patent pin-up looking black slingbacky ones for a wedding this weekend. Anyone who comments on my height gets punched in the nose twice--once for me and once for you!

You are tall. But too tall for heels? Probably not. Then again, I've never understood why women wear high heels in the first place.
