Never let anybody tell you that you are too tall to wear heels.
Coming in hot at 20 years old and 5’11” I have always been self-conscious of my height. I was taller than all the boys in elementary school and middle school. It wasn’t until high school that boys actually started to beat me in the height competition. I always felt uncomfortable wearing heels, it emphasized my already above-average stature. However, I loved heels. To me, there was nothing more feminine than throwing on a pair of heels with your outfit. So even though I was taller than 75% of my high school class, I wore high heels to every dance I went to, even if that meant being taller than my date.
I always got the usual, “Wow, you’re so tall,” whenever I wore heels, but I never took that negatively. I received my first negative comment, however, when I wore 5 inch chunky sandals (that went perfectly with my white sundress) ranking me at a whopping 6’4″. An acquaintance of mine saw me, gave me a quick up/down, and then so politely stated, “You really shouldn’t wear heels. You’re too tall.” To which I so politely responded, “Bitch, I do what I want” (not my best moment).
From that moment on, it became my personal mission to wear heels every opportunity I could. I wanted to prove to myself and tall girls everywhere that you are never too tall to wear heels.
