Last night was the premier of America’s Next Top Model, Le Cycle 13, featuring a group of girls I fit in to — those under 5’7″! I am still smaller than Sundai, who coming in at 5’3″ is the littlest “p” of the petites.

The one thing I did notice right on was that when first meeting the judges, and during panel, all of these mini-models were wearing flats. Hmm … curious choice by the producers, but I myself like to keep the height low from time to time. My boyfriend is only 5′ 6″ himself (he claims 5′ 7″) and that extra 4″ of difference helps. No matter how much you love ’em, you don’t always need to be literally in their face.

So which flats are of choice? Unfortunately, I didn’t hop on the Soda Volcano Tan Snake Vegan Leather Pointed Toe Flat [sold out!] quick enough to get my size, but my runner up flats were well stocked. The Soda Vestia Chocolate Faux Suede Ballet Flat [sold out!] and the Classifed Border Purple Crinkle Patent Button and Bow Flat [sold out!] are now a part of my fashion life.

Flats: Good for going out, Good for going to work, Good for the ANTM models of Le Cycle 13.
