I am the first one to complain about how uncomfortable high heels are, but subsequently, I will be the first to say how fundamental they are to any great outfit.

Luckily I found some practical and inexpensive items that will make any shoe, even the 5 inch ones, comfortable and walk-able.

I was able to try the Foot Petals Heavenly Blizz during a friend’s wedding where dancing and standing was a requirement, and thankfully I was able to wake up the following day without any knee or arch pains.

But the great ace up my sleeve was Dr. Scholls Fast Flats, a practical alternative to shoe wear which can be stashed easily inside the smallest clutch. So girls, take advantage of these comfortable options available and have fun enjoying the nightlife in sky high heels.

Short and stub… not the best words I would like to hear someone describe me, but sadly at 5”4”, I came to the realization, as many others out there, that I will never be able to adjust my height.  Many crave those never ending legs and how well they carry out many outfits.  Not to add salt to the wound but I cannot stand being in high heels for more than two hours. So what is a gal to do?

Here are some quick tricks out of the box for all of you girls that are unable to reach for the skies but are smart enough to dress like a super model.

1.     Dress in one solid color.  A good example is dress from head to toe in black; this creates an optical illusion of height.

2.     Match your tights to your shoes. Good and easy way to elongate your legs. Take note from Alexander Wang Collection 2012.

3.     Nude Heels.  This works! Try out shoes that match your skin tone and your legs will look, as they never end. We recommend this option of Nude Shoes – Guess by Marciano.

4.     Make your tailor your best friend.  Oversized and slouchy pants just make you look messy. By having pieces that fit you perfectly, it will accentuate the best parts and even play with your proportions.

5.     Try high waist-pants.  This fake trick lets your torso and lower body look longer.
