Buy yourself a pair of Dock Martens with some nice heels. I'm already 6'3ish, and I didn't realize that when I put those on, I'd have birds crashing into my face.
Seriously though, being tall isn't all it's cracked up to be. Sure, you get to see over crowds at bars and concerts, and you can check the smoke detector every six months, but you get a lot of back problems etc.
No joke -- the world is made for a 6'0 tall person. When you go beyond, things get dicey, and I don't mean just walking into things like doorways or hitting your head on things like lights/chandeliers.
I mean, office chairs, beds, and car seats, especially, are not supportive in the right places, and why would they be -- you the 6'2"+ owner is in the minority. My back is god-awful, and I can't really fit on my couch anymore. I say work what you've got......
