When in doubt, just wear some high heels. Or, maybe not. Maybe some mini-block heels. Yes. That would work. A little casual, a little classy. Perfect.
Let’s face it. I’m not as blessed as the most of you are in the height category. In simpler terms, I am short and petite. And that used to be the thing I was most insecure of. I grew up with society’s obsession with tall girls. Only tall girls can be pretty, they said. Boys like tall girls, they said. Being tall was the “in” thing, they said. And it doesn’t stop there. People would always point out, just for the love of making me more insecure than I already was, my shortness. “How are you, still short?” “How about the kids’ menu?” “Would you want to try and maybe get a pair of those pants in the kids’ section? Maybe something will finally fit you there.”
I never made it a point to be rude, though. I’d always just smile back. And sometimes I even laughed with them. But that was then, and today I’ve already gladly accepted the fact that I am short and I’m completely okay with it. I mean, how am I supposed to control, for goodness’ sake, my height?! I can’t do anything about it, so I better just embrace it and live with it.
But I was like… you know what would make me feel better? Something that would make me feel MORE THAN OKAY with being the shortest girl wherever I go? Mini-block heels. It’s lowkey, nothing too dramatic, but definitely adds quite a few inches to my height.
Just… wow. What a life-saver. Why have I never worn it before?! What was stopping me?!
Ever since I started wearing mini-block heels last February, I can’t even find the words to describe how much I’ve loved loved loved it since then. It goes with about any outfit I throw on. Doesn’t matter if it’s a blazer and shorts set, or a dress, or your usual camisole top-and-jeans combo. I swear it looks good with everything. And when I’m on the flow of everyday commute, it is nothing too attention-grabbing. You won’t even notice I’m wearing those mini-block heels unless you hear its satisfactory clanking when I’m walking.
Adieu, flat shoes. I may see you from time to time, but for now, I’ll be sticking with my mini-block heels.
