Ok so after losing a fair bit weight and getting myself out of a style slump I am feeling quite good at the moment!

Only problem I am having in completing my wardrobe is finding some nice shoes with a low heel that still look good with pencil skirts etc.

I'm 5'11 and love my height but I don't want to be 6'4

Dh is only 6' and even though I'm not worried about looking taller than him he's thin where as I am curvy with huge boobs and we just end up looking like maw and paw broon if my heels are too high grin

Plus all my friends are around 5'2 and i don't want to feel like I'm their bodyguard on nights out.

Is it possible at all to find nice shoes with a 2" heel that will actually look dressy? I've hundreds of flats ranging from cheap flip flops to expensive more posh looking ones but they just make outfits looks so casual where as people that can get away with skyscraper heels always look like they've made so much more effort sad

Fed up today as I'd ordered shoes online saying they had a 2" heel that looked like they would tick all the boxes but when they arrived they are actually 5"

Has anyone any ideas of what might work? I really suit pencil type skirts because of my shape but just can't get the footwear right!

I read an article (not sure if it was this one) which said that ballet shoes with a block heel were the next big thing.

Not quite sure if I like them...

The Guardian agrees, so it must be true!

Kitten heels - preferably slingbacks... These are nice:

Oh wow I absolutely cannot walk in huge heels so I do hope those block heel ballet shoes are going to be he thing to wear as they look like they could be the answer for those of us that want to wear a bit of a it of a heel on a night out! 😊

New look have a nice block heel in three colours and I was going to order all three but they are all out stock in a size 8 sad

It's so hard to find something that isn't frumpy

Onamissionfor2015 Tue 02-Aug-16 22:29:02

Goodgirls- they are perfect but out stock as well sad

Anything here? The red patent Gabor ones would look great with a pencil skirt.
