Super Tall

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 94 0

Dress: Rachel Rachel Roy. Shoes: Jimmy Choo. Clutch: Marc Jacobs. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Kate Spade Skinny Mini Bow Bangle, Stella & Dot Serpent Bangle, Forever 21 chain bangles, J.Crew triple bangle. Necklace: ASOS. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I feel super tall wearing these classic Jimmy Choo peep-toe platforms…okay, well, super tall for someone who is only 5’2″. Β I don’t own many platforms, but I must admit I love not feeling like the shortest person in the room when I wear them! Β Do you often wear platforms?

    This dress is so pretty and I love your accessories! I’m only 5’3 so I feel like a giant when I wear platform heels but they are so amazing (especially your Jimmy Choos!)

    Absolutely love the dress! I’m already quiet tall, so I don’t own many platforms, but love the Jimmy Choo’s.

      Thanks so much Emily! You are right, I just threw on a white cardigan for work, and then took it off for date night with my Man afterwards.

    YES! I do this all the time. My own brother-in-law thought I was taller than for a good six years because I always wore such tall heels around him. Then, one day I took my shoes off, and he was baffled. haha!

    Your bow bracelet looks perfect and delicate, and I have to admit I am DYING over that dress- I love it!

    I don’t wear platforms very often (because I am a total klutz), but I love a good 4 1/2 inch wedge! Every inch helps!

    • Jenny
      July 10, 2012

      Thanks so much Katie! Ha ha, I’m lucky that I’m pretty stable is platforms, but every inch does help!!

    You’re wearing the bow bangle, I love it! πŸ™‚ I love the unexpected stripe on the back of that dress, such a perfect detail.

    And as far as the pumps – they look super glamorous on you but I don’t ever wear shoes that tall, they hurt my feet too much! I don’t really need a boost anyway, haha

    • Jenny
      July 10, 2012

      Ha ha, you lucky tall people! πŸ™‚ I should have taken a better picture, but the stripe on the back is actually see-through mesh. It’s a cute touch!

  • Kendall

    Really love this whole look. That dress looks so good on you, and the pumps/clutch combo is perfect. I love to rock the platforms even though they can tend to make me feel a bit like a giant πŸ™‚

    Oh my gosh Jenny, this dress is such a dream and need to get my hands on it but the label doesn’t sound familiar to me :-(. you should wear red more often, is so flirty and flattering on you. The cut and detailing is just breathtaking and so feminine. I don’t war plattforms I walk like a stork in them πŸ˜€

    I love the print on your dress! I wear platforms quit a bit. I’m only 5’4″ but I wish I was 5’2″. That way I would only be about 5’6″ with heels πŸ™‚

      NO WAY, NEVER wish you were 5’2″!! πŸ™‚ I would KILL to be 5’4″! It sounds silly because it’s only a couple of inches, but it makes a huge difference!

    I think the best lookon petites is a maxi dress the shorter the skirt the shorter you look

    • Jenny
      July 10, 2012

      Thanks for commenting Lamia. On me, I disagree…I’m curvy, and I feel that maxi dresses make me look shorter and wider. But I’m sure you’re definitely right for some people.

  • Jess
    July 10, 2012

    Love those shoes! I’m only 5’4 so I love wearing super high heels, although I don’t actually own a pair of platforms anymore…must get some! πŸ™‚

    • Jenny
      July 10, 2012

      Thanks Jess! I only own a few pairs of platforms because I feel more classic in non-platforms, but I do love wearing them!
