My best friend is five feet, 10 inches, and I'm with her all the time. So considering my whopping height of five feet, one inch, you can imagine the constant struggle. I've been mistaken for her daughter at a manicure appointment and have gazed longingly at the gorgeous maxi dresses and floor-sweeping cardigans she tries on in fitting rooms because, well, they fit her like a glove — and they seem to swallow me whole.
Unfortunately, I don't like wearing heels, simply for the comfort factor, so when I go out with my modelesque friends that tower over me, I can't help but feel like the minimascot. Short girls of the world, I know you feel me. But, here's the thing — we're forgetting about all of the amazing style advantages that come with being tiny. And really, when you lay it out on paper, there are just as many pluses to being "vertically challenged" as there are to standing tall.
So scroll down to be reminded of all the wonderful fashion tricks you can totally pull off if you are on the shorter side. And later, when you're getting ready to go out, or tomorrow morning when you're getting dressed, remember — the best things really do come in the smallest packages.
