Stumbling or shuffling in heels is not my style. Watching inexperienced heel-wearers out on Friday and Saturday nights is enough to make me cringe (and sometimes lol). Word to the wise ladies – wear your heels around at home a few times before setting yourself up for embarrassment on the streets.
But I digress…
But I digress…
These platforms I bought are the most beautiful bronze colour and the heels are close to 5 inches high. (Not too bad if you think about the inch of platform raising the ball of the foot as well.) Nevertheless, they are certainly impressive, and I can’t wait to wear them out (if only for a short distance!).
My bf, on the other hand, is not so impressed. He thinks they look like stripper heels. I can see how he came to that conclusion, the untrained male eye might not see the difference between this… (black) and this… (pink). However, I was a little surprised to see the latter online in the same field as the other platforms and I smiled quietly at the way they labelled them “show-girl style” and not just “stripper heels”.
But! We are all about the platforms this season and the look is varying and plentiful, a style for every taste.
I’m loving the peep-toe, like my current obsession, but then I saw some nude pumps in another store (well out of my price range – until next pay day, anyway). I think they were the most beautiful things I have ever seen! I’m sure one of my Barbies had a pair just like them back in the day and I am determined to transport the Barbie shoe on to my own dainty hoof in the coming weeks. Nude is such a hot colour right now, so classy, so elegant and extremely versatile as far as clothing choice goes.
I haven’t quite embraced the gladiator look yet, in sandals or heels. I can see how it works, I like some of the ones I see, but I can’t quite make it to the check out. If they stick around for long enough perhaps I will eventually conform, but ‘til then I’ll stick with my pumps.
Other trends continuing to grace our feet are cork heels, snakeskin leather and some gorgeous bright colours and patents – something for every occasion. Just make sure that when you’re out shopping, you’re going for sexy chic not stripper-chick!
