stumbling stilts

these are the tallest shoes that I have ever owned! I was feeling really proud of myself for being so brave and just accepting that I am REALLY tall in these bad boys and for being able to walk in them at all... that was until this past Sunday.... when a combination of post brunch shopping, joking around with my girlfriends (and maybe a mimosa or two) lead to me falling off my shoes and directly onto my booty in the middle of Urban Outfitters...it was pretty brutal but all in all only my pride was hurt, but it was hurt pretty bad. All in all it was pretty hilarious!
