    I think I like the Bentla best. Love silver. Thanks for the posting shoes that are both tall and not tall. Due to achilles tendon issues, I have to do flats with arches which can be hard to do and get a great looking shoe. My favorite store is When the Shoe Fits because they have such beautiful shoes that make my feet happy.

      Hi Sheila:
      Thank you so much for stopping by! Yes, the Bentla is a fun one! Love all the sparkle! Yes, I wanted to make sure that I featured both flat and high-heeled shoes- something for all tastes. I will have to check out When The Shoe Fits. Thanks for sharing this site with me!

    Loved your post. I can’t say that I’m a shoe person, I wish I was though. I absolutely love the first turquoise pair of shoes you shared in your blog post. It’s my favourite although I don’t know if I would be able to wear such high heels. The classic black shoes you shared reminded me of a pair I had very similar about 30-32 years ago. It felt so empowering to be able to walk in 4″ heels. I was on top of the world. Add that eight to my 5′ 8.5″ tall frame, I was certainly tall with the heels. Today I much prefer to be closer to the ground. :)

      Hi Suzanne!
      Hello! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, I totally understand the preference to being “closer to the ground”- always nice to “be grounded”. Though, there is nothing like that feeling of empowerment you get when you have on a beautiful pair of shoes!
      Best Wishes,
      -Amy Kathleen
