Catherine de’ Medici understood their purpose, and so do we. Once we step into them, we stand with confidence and authority. We exude a more regal air and make heads turn. And yes, let’s not forget – we look a helluva lot taller!


Now that’s the part I really love, because I am, well, like dear Catherine, ‘petite in stature’, and when in heels, no one seems to notice. But as soon as someone catches me wearing flats, I can count on hearing, “Wow, I didn’t realize you were sooooo short”! And then I go into my explanation on how I grew a half inch in college, and how I am fortunately well-proportioned, so my “shortness” is not too noticeable when I’m ‘Walking Tall’ in heels. Or so it seems.
