True confession: I never wear high-heels. Why? Well, as a very tall woman
who is dating a not-so-tall man, I have a hard time justifying, both to myself and to my fellow, those few extra inches of altitude. While I recognize that certain shoes are more flattering for your legs, the fact still remains: I hate heels.
Because I hate heels, I've been on a life-long quest for a closet full of perfect flats. In my experience, finding great flats in black is never much of a challenge. However, finding a pair of decent-looking neutral-colored flats? Well, that's like trying to find virtue in the Red Light District
of Amsterdam. Good luck with that one, ladies.
But then I found Pedro Garcia's nude satin round-toed flat
sold on-line at milk
. While the shape is so Audrey Hepburn a la Roman Holiday,
the details are anything but retro-quaint. With raw edges and a silver chain across the toes, these shoes offer everything a modern girl could want from a shoe that is not a heel. And at the risk of sounding completely hysterical, I must say, I hope that when I die, I am buried in these shoes.
It's a tall girl's dying wish...
