I loved this post at Paris Breakfasts:
I was thrilled to see the ballet flats! Being very tall (almost 5′ 11″), I LOVE flat shoes or kitten heels. I would probably break both my ankles if I attempted to wear stilettos. I admire tall women who wear high heels, but since I always avoided them when I was younger, I never learned to walk in them properly. Besides, if Audrey Hepburn loved flats, they must be chic!
