Being 5'9" I'm already pretty tall. Being in flats or sandals gives me a chance to be close to eye level with my petite friends. When I was younger I felt so awkward walking around in high heels, towering above most of the other girls. I feel like Godzilla attacking the shorter people around me. But, as I got older and became more confident and comfortable in myself I was proud to show off my height no matter what footwear I sported.
But recently I've been wondering how tall is too tall? There are some shoes I have been coveting; but between the platform and the wedge height, they'll add about 5 inches to my height. That's putting me at 6'2"! And for the record I'm not moonlighting as a model, so my day to day life doesn't involve a runway to strut down.What do you guys think? Am I reverting back to my self-conscious self or should I embrace my gentle giant facade and rock the highest heels I can?
