Stand Tall, Walk at Your Own Risk


Click to view larger

I confess. I am totally hooked on platform shoes! Being 5’3, I love throwing on a pair and instantly becoming 5’8! Alas, this trend will probably fade by the end of next year and I will have to find another way to make myself appear taller. You think big hair will be coming back anytime soon?

    LOL….I’m also 5’3″ and over 50 years old but still love the high heels and platform shoes.

    You are beautiful, Karen.  It really doesn’t matter what type shoes you wear.
    I can sympathize with you though, as I am only 5’2″, slowly shrinking in my “old age!”
    I too wore platform shoes in my younger years although, I would probably break my neck
    if I wore them now!
    You’ve got nothing to worry about sweetie pie.

    Karen~   I had to laugh reading this post, because I feel completely the opposite as you do.

    Iam also about 5’3″, but most of what I wear are sneakers, because Iam afraid of heights, so I would rather be closer to the ground.

    In the end, which Iam sure you know this already, but in the end, your height is the least of your worries, and not that important compared to many, many other things.

    Your heart, you  have a big one.

    That’s what counts!

      I don’t lose any sleep over my height, that’s for sure! lol I guess I just like playing dress up still.  😉

    Karen….I have those exact same shoes……I love them !!!!      I also love high heels because I am 5 ft 9 in and my hubby is 6 ft 5 inches tall.

      LOVE IT! 😀

    I agree Karen.  Bring on the platforms and wedge heels.  I’m 5″61/2″ and hubby is 6’6″!!!

  • WILLY

    THAT BLOWS MY MIND!  I HAD ENVISIONED YOU AS BEING ABOUT 5’9”.  YOU JUST HAVE THAT TALL LOOK ABOUT YOU.  SHOES LOOK NICE, BUT HOW DO YOU WOMEN WEAR THOSE THINGS?  LOOKS LIKE THAT WOULD HURT.  DO IT FOR YOURSELF. NONE OF US GUYS ARE WORTH IT!
