Sublimefemme Tells All, No. 2

There’s no such thing as heels that are too high. They’re called “sit-and-look-pretty-shoes.”

  1. oh my…i have a closet full of *these* types of heels. they are totally for sitting and or laying down. never anything that involves standing at my statuesque height of 5’3″. never. ever.

    p.s. i heart your blog big time. xo.

    I’m so glad you mentioned lying down shoes, which could be the best accessory ever invented. My pink marabou stilettos (yes, I really do have a a pair of those) definitely fall into that category! 😉 -SF

  2. I have a pair of these! I walk in them anyway, sometimes. Damn shooz will be forced into submission! They will be somewhat useful at least, or they will not go on my big-ass feet.
    Hussyred, I’m 5’3″ also- that’s WHY I’ve got these heels in the first place! Extra height, dammit!

  3. OMG I’m totally crying right now…I injured my knee on a business trip to SFO this past June and the Dr. informed me that I would not be allowed to wear heels (I normally wear 4 inchers…) for 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was in flats for less than a month…I HATE flats! But, my Dr. told me that I would not get better if I wore now, I just compromise by wearing little kitten heels :*(
    ((give me my 4 inch heels back)) :*(

    I’m *so* sorry about your knee, Laura! I know you perspire with lust at the sight of your heels, but you’ll never get better if you don’t follow doctor’s orders. So my femme Rx for you, my fab fierce friend, is to make friends with flats. And to borrow the advice I heard a famous stylist give once, wear them like you want to wear them, not like you have to wear them. I like kitten heels too but I also think a cute flat is adorable. I have one pair of that is so fantastic, I get more compliments on them than any pair of heels I own (which is saying a lot!). I’m also really into the menswear-inspired trends for fall, including oxfords (the classic, flat ones). I love to be all dolled up and wear one menswear-inspired piece, like shoes or a vest. Come up with a look that feels good to you with a flat/low heel and stick with it. Don’t cry, sweetie, and get well soon! xo -SF
