Seuss Says…

Reading all your comments and emails following the Heels Phobia post confirmed that the high-heel thing has been a major issue for us all. It seems like — whether we’re too scared to wear them or not — every one of us in united in one thing. We want to wear heels.

And what is so frustrating, is that while some girls can’t bring themselves to do it, there are other readers — like 5’11 Di — who’ve tried them later in life and now couldn’t live without them. Di writes, “It’s opened up a whole new exciting world of gorgeous (and often sexy) shoes and boots –  I look better and slimmer in heels and my husband loves them too…. I just wish I had worn them sooner!”

ATTT newbie Jenny says “I am proud of the fact that [I’m] different to everyone else. In fact, I often wish I was taller”, while Stephanie says “When you are tall, do a few extra inches really make that much of a difference? I think not.” Which brings me on to this very appropriate quotation from the wonderfully wise and wacky Dr Seuss.

Quite.

  1. I am 6ft too. And have one condition for wearing heels. I must just look perfect.

    However, i have this issue of what i dont knowmy height to be like in comparison with others. If i walk in flats in town, people hardly care. I think about 10% will notice and thats just a quick look and they move on. on the odd occassion say 0.5% will gawk and they are usually a really short person or an insecure male thats an inch or 2 taller than me.

    My real question: if the lovely miss blogger could post pics of yourself in and out of heels but with people. even if they are background.

    I just want to know what 5.10-6ft people look like in crowds.

    thanks for listening

  2. Hi Jewel,

    Thanks for you comment. I’m happy to post such pictures when the opportunity arises. Although I do look a lot taller than everyone else… quite markedly in fact. I never suggested that heels are a way of “blending in”. Clearly we stick out, and heels are only gonna make us stick out higher. I just think that if we’re gonna stand out, we might as well do so in a ruddy good pair of shoes.

    I’ll see what I can do for you though!

  3. I love being tall now thanks to what you write! Good heels make all the difference…people know not to mess with me when the heels are out…they make me feel like a super hero! My faves a black suede with a 5 inch heel! Making me over 6ft. Xx

  4. @Jewel What do I look like in a crowd?
    Tall, very tall; elegant, slim, stylish, confident, powerful, interesting, different and in this Olympic year, raising the bar!
    Walk tall, walk proud!

  5. I just had this conversation with my mum actually, I saw these cute blue wedges on Barefoot Tess that are 4 inches. With them I’d be 6’8! I mean yes I’d get a lot of flack at school, but I’m already so tall what’s a bit more really? I definitely don’t blend it anyhow, might as well stand out in these supercute affordable wedges, maybe try with another bright colour or some sweatpants for a glam Cher Lloyd feel?

  6. I’m a little over 5ft 11″ and I wear heels all the time. My highest heels are 6 inches (though I don’t wear them any more, for some reason my feet have shrunk and they won’t stay on my feet)

    I used to design shoes and there was no way I was going to miss out on all the pretty shoes, however I am very lucky and I only have size 7 feet.

    On a night out they can be a distinct advantage. I am pushed through the bar first as my friend said it’s like Moses parting the Red Sea. Everybody steps back to look and we get through the crowds. People looking doesn’t bother me at all. However the main disadvantage is that I intimidate men and that one occasion when I was in a gay club and a very very old man told me I made a convincing woman :-O! Luckily I found it quite amusing.
