because.. why not?

hellllllllloooo blog world! My name is Bridget and I am a twenty something girl originally from the south, now living in the big baddd city of NEW YORK. For now, that's all I'll really say simply because I decided its way too hard to describe myself for a proper introduction. Plus, isn't it more fun to learn as you go? Hopefully it's sort of like forever21: hard to conquer initially, but pretty soon becomes second nature. Besides, details and fun facts will undoubtedly pop up as we go along. (More on F21 and my love/hate relationship later).

Now, on to the more pressing issues: like the booties i just saw, and wanted to buy desperately, but didn't because they push me just over the 6'2 mark. They look a lot like the YSL II tributes, and my original thought was that they'd be perfect for my new internship (cute with black tights and my navy romper?) Buttt, and here is the question, is it inappropriate to wear heels as an intern? And be 6'2?

I'll no doubtttt be surrounded by clackers* and I don’t want to look like I'm trying too hard to be just like them. I know my place and it's not at the top! Regardless, I still want to try and be as fashionable as I can on my budget. It's my first step into the fashion world and I want to stand out without stepping on toes.

What're your thoughts? Am I over analyzing? Should I get them regardless?

*From Urban Dictionary thus obscenely unofficial, but you'll get my point -- clacker 1. noun. a stunning beauty working in NYC for somekind of fashion magazine. ALWAYS showing up to work in the hottest styles, possibly not even out for the public yet.

  1. Hahaha, urbandictionary rox my sox.

    Is that picture of the heels?

    What a funky coincidence, because this seems like your first blog post? And I just started my new blog today as well!

    As for the shoe advice, meh won't be of much help. I've never worn heels before (and I'm only 5' 5"!) mainly because I can't balance well enough in them to actually walk without falling over. >.<

  2. Im a guy so I wont be much help, but I am assuming that you are around 5'10 and will fit right in with the clackers heel or no heel. If you have doubts though go with you gut.

    Oh and congrats on starting your blog.

    I will stay tuned and see how this goes.

  3. I say, if you like them and they make you feel amazing, then you should get them!

  4. I guess we're both starting fresh with our blogs :) I'm a sartorialist fan too..if you have the time, drop by at my blog ;)


  5. HOLY CRAP! I love those booties! U should wear them but make sure u understate the rest of the outfit--that way it's not over the top, and u give the shoes their rightful attention! I was an intern at a really relaxed place and still rocked whatever I wanted--You'll get a reputation for whatever style u show! There may be a couple of people who complain, but most of the people above u will admire you--just make sure u stay ahead of the fashion curve and make ur own mark!
    I'm from the South too(Houston via New Orleans)--I've always wanted to go to New York! Where r u from?!

  6. i remember clackers from devil wears prada, it's the sound the heel make of these very fashionable women/girls

  7. GET 'EM BRIDGY, they're so0o0 cute! nola belle rox.

  8. I love those shoes. I don't care how tall they make me. Everyone needs shoes like that in their life.

  9. totally get them.
    the taller you are, the better.
    i'm a mere 5'4 so I wear heels allll the time.
    I'd give anything to be around 6'0 /:
    but, back to the point of this comment..


    i just started recently started (:
