I don't know about you.., but any time I can get my hands on a pair of tall shoes, I am a happy girl!  Most gals on the tall side are worried about towering over the fellas when wearing heels.  At 5 6, it feels like I am definitely a tower with 3-4 inch heels on. No worries, if the shoe fits wear it!

This spring:picks include flat forms, block heels, and a large selection of flats.  If you aren't keen on heels you will be happy with flat styles being offered with fancy embellishments such as fringe, gems, feathers etc.
  
A new shoe collection is coming out in February designed by rapper Iggy Azalea.  You can catch a sneak peak of her shoe art in the latest issue of InStyle.  She has partnered with Steve Madden to showcase very loud and fun styles.   I can't wait to see the entire line!  Her design focus is classically retro.  The offerings will include chunky 90's style platforms and heels, as well as mesh style leather that is athletic inspired.  Neoprene, the new go to fabric for fashion will also be part of Iggy's" fancy feat" collection.

In the shoe world, it does seem as if anything goes right now,  pick your favorite style and wear it proudly!   My favorite is probably a stiletto pump. I'd love to hear what your favorite picks are in the comment section below.  Happy shoe shopping!
