Yes, I'm Tall

I'm 5'8 and when I was younger I was kind of insecure about my height. I could care less about how tall I am but when people point out your height it's a little odd, whether people think you're too short or too tall. So I rocked my jc wedges to school today and two people in one of my classes basically said wow you're tall, though the words weren't particularly hurtful their tones told me it wasn't meant in the most positive way. Whatever! Tall girls represent!

So ladies and gents, I totally overdress for school and I like it! It was totally evident today. As always, I was dead set on wearing something despite the weather (it was freezing today) so I wore it: a H&M shirt dress. I walk into class and I just see Uggs and sweatshirts and then there's me. I don't mind standing out ;)

The Look Goes As Follows:
F21 faux fur vest
H&M Star Wars shirt dress
Duane Reade sheer tights
H&M socks
JC Alexa wedges

Girl, fuck them bitches. You're ab fab. Besides, 5'8" is basically the minimum model height, so you've just one-upped them.

Oooh those boots look great!!! I'm still hoping to get my hands on a pair of Acne ones...or maybe a white pair of these Jeffrey Campbell Alexa's. I hope you're a STAR WARS fan! It's my fave movie EVER.

Height translates to power & strength, which makes other people sometimes feel inadequate. I'm sure that's the cause of the negative comments. In my personal opinion 5'8" is a perfect height for a female. Love the clothes too.

Number One: I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE that you are tall!! :) (even when i say wow you're so tall today-it's only because I look like a midget next to yooou! ;)

Number Two: Most girls wear heels to gain height, like myself so I can at least be 5'4 :)

Number Three: I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you're tall!

Number Four: Love the star wars dress-I think I will buy it and wear it to every babysitting job I have since all the kids love that darn movie-huge brownie points!

Number Five: You're fabulous, sugar, flaunt what your mamma (or daddy since your mom is my height hehe) gave you! Leave those haters behind! :)

Did I mention how envious I am of your tallness?!?! ;)

xoxoxo.

Gorgeous outfit! And Im 5'8" as well and I enjoy my height, sometimes people like to point it out who are much shorter and scorn but that doesnt phase me. Some people are also jealous and love to spew "you're not that tall" when Im a good 5 inches over them, haters never prosper. Glad you're confident in your skin as you should be :)

my sister has those wedges- after i tried them on i wanted them in nude but haven't tracked them down yet! love that t-shirt- so fun! yes, my friend is 6 feet tall and she likes wearing heels. people comment on her height all the time- so strange that people just state the obvious with no real purpose!
