In the “shoectionary”, a “kitten heel” is a short slender heel, usually about 3,5-5cm heel size. These were made popular by the mega style icon, Audrey Hepburn!!! These beauties were a hit in the early 60s as they evolved from being “trainer heels” for teenagers to a wardrobe staple for older women! While I appreciate the sexiness exuded by stilettos, there is something elegant about kitten heels, which does not go unnoticed. Present day, First Lady Michelle Obama, is a huge fan of kitten heels, and has them in multiple shapes and colours!(see images below)
I personally see it this way, a woman that dares to wear kitten heels, is a woman that is confident and sure of herself (needing no super high heels to boost her !*chuckles*). This is not to say those who wear stilettos are not confident, NO, in fact, I am a huge fan of stilettos myself, only that sometimes, like today, I just feel like kitten heels 😉
So, which one for you, kitten heels or stilettos?
