I have always been (almost) the shortest one in the lot since I haven't had a growth spurt in about, give or take, nine years. Yes, I am the same height I was in middle school. So if you took a guess - heels are one of my best friends. They give me height, make me 'appear' slimmer, and they look cute. All around, they treat this shrimpette pretty well. But sometimes I'd rather be a hare instead of a tortoise. On the days I feel like a hare I wear .... FLATS. That way I can walk fast(er) and not look like a dumby while doing it.
I don't know to many women who can run in heels gracefully and at the same speed as when they're wearing flats. Maybe Tyra Banks can? But it is very hard for me to walk any faster than the speed of smell when I've got those heel things on. Therefore, I am very happy to break the mold and say that the misconception that flats ain't fancy is nothing but a misconception, misunderstanding, stupid comment, and a joke. Shoutout to all of my coworkers who think flats aren't work appropriate. This post is for all those ladies. If paired properly flats can be just as dressy and work appropriate as any heel could be. Granted heels may be more flattering and appealing. Flats work too.
I personally get sick and tired and tired and sick of wearing heels day after day. A girls feet need a break to get reaquainted with the ground. So on the mornings that I am running late flats are my go to shoes. And my feet are always happy to see them.
For our shoot I chose to wear my favorite Steve Madden black flats that are completely broken in and SO comfortable. I paired them with a flutter skirt and statement tights to dress them up a little. Now this skirt is a little on the short side so flats always go perfect with it. Heels make your skirts grow shorter ladies. Or at least gives that illusion. Wearing it to work with heels might get me sent home. Jessica also gave flats a go so be sure to go over and check out her take on this StyleBuster.
And, don't you dare forget to link up with us and show us how fancy your flats can be. Help us prove all these anti-flat wearers wrong.
