Since the other thread started talking about the fad of "stripper heels" I wanted to know, who loves thier heels.
I have to admit that now I am out of working in the vet office or in retail, I a loving my heels. And being 5'4 the taller the better. Love tall and flashy but the rest of my outfit is conservative so the shoes add a little kick.
I love my heels too! I like to look at them more than wear them, though . I don't get how some women can actually walk more than a few yards in the 5-inchers, because those things are brutal on my feet!
Think I'm getting more adventurous...I found a wicked awesome sale at the Nine West outlet and bought three pairs of 3 inch heels....absolutely drool-worthy. I am going to be hiding a pair of comfy shoes so I can get myself used to them gradually!

LOL!! I have a pair of ~5" wedge espadrilles. I love wearing them to work because suddenly I can see over the tops of the cubes! (I am 5'2" on a tall day in the morning.) I can't do much walking in them though ... after a long day my feet are pretty unhappy.
I love wearing heels. I have a good 6 or 7 pairs in the closet right now...definitely a weakness for me. I think my biggest one is only 4" though (I'm 6' tall so anything beyond that gets a little excessive, I admit!). Flats are for weenies!
I'm a little ashamed of women in general - we are SO mean to each other about looking "like a stripper", slutty, etc. It's pathetic and so damaging. We can do better for each other than that!
I'm 6' and I love a good pair of heels....the higher, the better!
I currently own about 30 pairs in all colors, styles and designers and I think my shortest pair is 3". My highest pair is 5" with a platform sole, so I work out to be a hair over 6'5 when I have them on
Speaking only for myself here, it certainly wasn't my intention to put women down when I complained about the shoes, I was commenting more about the fashion industry and the current trend (3 inch platform with 6 inch spike heel) in general. I didn't mean to come across as implying that women who wear high heels are strippers, or trying to look like strippers or wanting to look slutty.
The majority of my shoes are 3 to 3 1/2" heels since I'm only 5'3".

I love, love, love heels! I am ashamed at how many I have, although I truly do wear all of them. I have found the Jessica Simpson brand to be far and away the most comfortable while still being sexy. On a good day, I can find them at Marshalls, otherwise I get my fix at Nordstrom.
I love how they look and how they make me look (I'm just shy of 5' and need all the help I can get in appearing taller and slimmer), but I don't wear them that often due to my inability to walk without twisting an ankle And, I wear a size 5-6, sometimes wide so it's hard to find a fit lol
