PERSONALLY I'm not about flats. I think you should have at least has a small heel (like a kitten heel) rather than no heel at all. I'm only 4'11 so understand your problem of not wanting to look shorter than you already are. Plus I think sometimes (depending on the coord) flats can stand out as being too plain compared to the rest of your outfit.
Depending on what style you're into (gothic, sweet, classic) there's a lot of non-mary jane options. There's boots (victorian, pastel and punk styles), oxfords, creepers, rocking horse shoes, those new popular velvet platforms and tons others!
