What’s Your Story?

We are looking for women with empowering stories to share with our group.  We are all on the life journey with an incredible and unique experience.  Your story is one that will help inspire another women.

In life we give and receive energy all day long.  Today, I find myself engaging in many conversations and I always want to leave people with something positive.  It might be a simple smile, a laugh, or good eye contact to really try to connect with people.

I am looking for people to join me with positive content that will help empower each other.  You can participate with responses to this message.  Let’s start talking and sharing!

He’s Shorter Than Me….Should I Wear Heels?

Nicole Kidman (5’11”) with husband Keith Urban (5’10”)

In my opinion, a big fat YES! If you are confident enough in who you are and he doesn’t feel awkward walking beside you, what’s the problem?

I know, I know.  You’re sitting there saying…well, I don’t want to be towering over my guy.  I don’t want people staring at us because we look strange.  I totally understand.  I had a time when I felt uncomfortable in my skin.  It took some time but by the time I was 19, I finally felt confident enough to say, “If I like the shoes, I don’t care.  I will buy and wear them.”

Just look at some of the world’s celebrities like Tom Cruise (5’7″) who date women who are taller and was even married to Nicole Kidman (5’11”), who wore heels all the time.

But, you have to be comfortable at the end of the day.  If you’re not, take the time to find yourself some cute styles that will still make you feel sexy, confident and show off who you are.

Mick Jagger (5’10”) with girlfriend L’Wren Scott (6’3″).

Model and fashion designer, L’Wren Scott (6’3″), has been dating Mick Jagger (5’10”) and she often wears flat shoes that are quite stylish and still make her look elegant.

The bottom line is you have to find the balance in what makes you comfortable.  For me, I figure, I’m already tall so if I like the shoes I don’t care.  Why should I keep myself from owning some of my favourite things just because God happened to make me 6’1″?  I own several shoes and most of them are anywhere from one to four inches in height.

I recently hosted an event in Toronto, Canada and I was wearing my current favourite Franco Sarto sandals I have had for a couple of seasons now.  They are about 4 inches tall.  Check me out in the press photo above with the co-founders.  I’m towering over them.

I always enjoy wearing heels because they make me feel sexy and give me that ‘runway’ strut.  I think they can make or break an outfit.  I have dated men slightly shorter than me but I always wear heels regardless.  I figure, the man knows I’m tall and usually met me when I was already wearing heels.  So he obviously knows I wear them.  I’m not going to change who I am if he suddenly becomes uncomfortable.

What can I say? I love shoes. I love heels and I don’t care that I’m tall, I’ll always wear heels.

What do you do?

Wedges

One of the big trends this summer are wedges.  More comfortable than your typical heels, they are easy to walk in and look fabulous with all your pretty summer dresses.

Lucky for you, Pretty Long Feet has a pair of wedges perfect for your summer wardrobe update.   Check out the Naya Nalani available on the prettylongfeet.com site.   It’s available in size 10-12.

Snake Around Next Spring

It’s fun to look at what’s coming up in shoe trends.  Right now we are in the midst of spring/summer 2012 but designers are already preparing Spring 2013 collections.  One of the trends is snake-print.   The colours used in these snake-printed shoes make them stand out. These three styles are the perfect mix of sex appeal with classic elegance.

Great to know that Ivanka Trump’s shoes are available up to size 12.  Hopefully we’ll get a few of these styles for you on prettylongfeet.com for next spring.
