some helpful height...




I just realized I need some new heels. I have a few I really like, including my new J.Crew's that desperately need a matching dress, but being on the shorter side I could use some new basics! A great black peep-toe, and maybe a neutral cream coloured pair. I need some added height! lol. Do you have a pair of, dare I say, comfy heels? From where?

I can't afford the really expensive stuff. But I have a pair of strappy Steve Maddens that are pretty comfy and totally hot. And a pair of Born sandal heels that feel better than some tennis shoes. They aren't the prettiest thing in my closet, but I can walk in them all day.

I totally understand what you mean! I'm 5'3" and find that I prefer to wear heels most of the time. I found a great pair via Nine West,

and another from Calvin Klein. Although, I have found that Arturo Chiang is quite comfortable as well. Nice designs. too. Best and most comfy is finding a pair that has a hidden elastic just under the buckle, for the strap. (The Nine West pair and Calvin Klein have this feature) It gives a little as you walk and as your feet swell a little extra in summer...

Piperlime.com is great if you're looking for footwear but don't have time to shop around...

i have a pair of purple patent leather dries van noten heels that i wear everywhere! they're only about 2.5" high, though, so i don't know if they count as high heels; but i'm a size 5.5 so my feet can only tolerate so much height before they're almost vertical, unfortunately! i also find that appropriate shoe inserts (or combinations of) can make all the difference.

I found a brand new pair of Christian Louboutin shoes in my size for $10. at Goodwill in San Francisco! I floated home on a cloud!
