Love-Hate Relationship with Sky High Heels

The other night, I got dressed all pretty to support a gal pal's new business project. As I said before, I am so fortunate to surround myself with many talented and driven friends. They are my constant source of inspiration support. For the night, I accessorized my eggplant purple dress with a pair of multi-color heels and a yellow clutch. For some reason, I just adore yellow and purple pairing, which is royal and bright in my opinion.
Anyhoo, the point of this post is my love-hate relationship with sky-high heels. First, I love the fact that I am 5'9" with these heels. With that being said, I don't know why I really torture myself like this, making myself walking on tiptoe all night long. To me, the most perfect heel height is about 2.5 inch. This way, I can actually walk and enjoy myself when I am at an event. These heels are only good for walking from the car to the venue. Within 10 minutes, I am looking around for the first chair available. Recently I am barely getting comfortable wearing higher heels. All in all, I still rather wear flats!! What about you, how do you like sky high heels? What is your height limit?

What I am Wearing:
-Eggplant purple dress - Emporio Armani
-Multi-color eel skin heels - Sergio Rossi --- I got this pair because it literally will pair well with many different outfits in warme color tones due to the colors.
-Yellow clutch - Louis Vuitton

  1. I agree...I can usually do about 3" heels comfortably and LOVE wearing flats. Although, I do I have a pair of 4" Stuart Weizmann's that I can wear comfortably all day at work.

    I'm 5'9" already, so when I wear 4-5" heels...yeah, amazon woman.

  2. I love flats and heels up to 2.5, but the higher they are, the more I envy the ladies who can ignore the discomfort and strut it. Love that dress, by the way.

  8. I love high heels, but nothing over 3 or 3.5 inches. I wear size 6, so my foot is only about 8 inches long in the first place!

  9. I love my ballet flats, but I am really really small, so for formal events, intimidatingly high heels are the way to go. I have (sigh) learned to accept the discomfort. I don't wear them very often anyway!

  10. Like you, I prefer flats and the most I can wear is up 2.5 and not for long and so I have utmost respect for women who wear really high heels the whole day!
