Yep, you heard me right. The bigger, the better. You see, some people just aren’t ready to handle the big dogs but that’s all I live for. Precisely one that is cute and always gets the job done.
I stand a slim 5’’11 (yes mom, I’m finally admitting to it) and I love it. Some of my best friends include Steve, Aldo, and even Jessica when I’m in the mood to deal with her. If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m Kiandra Jeane’- lover of the Arts, Starbucks, and a bangin’ heel.
I’ve been tall all of my life, towering a solid 5’’8 in 10th grade, so I’ve been the subject of many salty thoughts and jokes (see the “Amazon” comment made on social media a few years back). Not only that, but I’ve sat through some of the most aggravating convos about me playing basketball – “No, was never my thing”- and some of the weakest pick up lines (because yes, you saying you will climb me is definitely a flirtatious approach). Granted, it can be flattering from time to time, but not all attention is good nor needed.
Ladies, it’s time we had a talk. I know you refuse to wear heels because it may potentially lower your opportunity of finding a man who actually wants a woman that can occasionally be taller, but sweetie who are you living for? Now before you are mislead, this outlook is something that did not happen over night. I used to slouch, only rock sneakers, and I refused to ever speak my real height. This was a constant battle up until about 12 years old when I first started modeling and realized that in actuality, people really wanted to be like me. I began to take a different approach on life and instead of trying to fit in, I began to do what I loved and eventually, wearing sexy stilettos were high up on that list. So I had no choice but to stand out. Literally.
I’m not here to make you feel comfortable and that’s something people often fail to remember. The insecurities of guys I once took an attraction to were some of the easiest ways to turn me off. Actually, now that I think about it, my current boyfriend (yes he is taller than me) is one of the few men that I’ve ever met that actually told me he loves when I wear heels. *cues Rick and Teena’s Fire and Desire* As a matter of fact, its been a few times that we’ve gone on a summer or springtime date and I just knew I would be cute in my simple yet chic sandals, “umm, you are wearing those just to drive right?” DEAD.

You are beautiful girl, never forget that and never let someone’s opinion of you be the determining factor of that either. Heels weren’t created to make a woman even taller, but to give her an extra hint of sass. I don’t see myself not wearing heels, like ever. And hey, if you don’t want to stand by me, that’s your choice. I love me and if you don’t, build a bridge.
So to all my beautiful tall ladies, leave the flats at home- especially on the weekends! I wear flats to work, but other than that? Nope, I know nothing shorter than a 4-inch. Be free and rock your height in confidence! The perfect guy will come. And if that means being an inch taller than him sometimes, who cares?! It’s an inevitable that us tall beauties have to face from time to time. Don’t hunch over to impress the guy admiring you from afar, make him sweat as you exude radiance in that setting. There is nothing more intimidating than a woman who is confident and owns her truth. So work it- for you!
