Your Shape, Your Style? Finding the Perfect Spring Heel

If you're short, of course you want to feel like your 5'9" inner Diva so you should absolutely wear a good heel. ShoeMint has so many heels  but my top pick for that maximum height with style is the NICOLE. Giant platform means a giant heel.... go BIG or go HOME!

Just because you're tall doesn't mean you can't do a heel... Who says?!! I love the KAREN for those of you that likes to rock a pump, but you don't have to worry about towering over everyone with this stylish and classic kitten heel.

When you're stocky you don't want a THICK ankle strap that's going to cut your leg line into something shorter than what you're working with. But why limit yourself with that reality... you can always go with a shoe like the thin ankle straps like the SHIVA that gives you height, but the delicate thin straps won't do anything but give you a chic look with your maxi or cocktail dress.

When you're a voluptuous sexy mama, sometimes skinny stiletto heels are hard to walk in. Also if you have wide feet it's difficult to find the perfect comfortable heel. SOOOOOO go with the JORDANE!! The suede will form to your foot the more you wear it, open center of the shoes will make your legs look longer even with the straps, and the wedge will give you the comfort you need whether you're at work, you're out with your girlfriends or you're on a date.

If you're a lucky woman and you have skinny legs, you can pretty much get away with all the ShoeMint shoes EXCEPT!! Please make sure your ankles are not doing the hula hoop in the ankle straps. A simple behind the scenes trick for that is to use a safety pin and poke an additional hole so the strap is the perfect fit. Make sure you poke on both sides before you put the center bar through. Also make sure you cut the extra length at an angle so it doesn't look like you did it at home ;).
