Once in a while, it's good to be a little daring. You know it, just admit it! Whether it's walking up to that new cutie in the office at the water-cooler, or ordering a crazy type of sushi instead of your usual boring (but tasty!) California Roll, or wearing that outfit you swore you could never pull off but now have the guts to flaunt...being a bit intrepid every now and again feels good. Builds character I'd say, you know? Well, I've got a few shoes that might challenge your bravery today, and I just dare you to give 'em a try.
The amazing Diane von Furstenberg's 'Luna' High Heel Strappy Sandals are soaring to new heights at 5-inches with a 1-inch covered platform! Wowza. A true 'force of fashion this season', these Grecian-inspired lovelies are all leather with a comfy & convenient elasticized slingback. The 'Luna'-loos come in a delightful bright gold......and also a classic black leather. Either can easily be paired up with your gorgeous red-carpet ready evening dress or that cute jean jumper you've been dying to bust out for the warmer months ahead.
Boutique 9 is a shoe brand that's quickly rising to the top of my favorites list right now. Check out these Boutique 9 'Ramiro' Platform Pumps (another all-leather comfy heel). Standing on a stacked wooden 5" heel you're going to see the world in a whole new stylish way! And check out that sexy zipper that runs curvy across your foot, adding just the right amount of understated detail to one greatly unique pump.
I told you so--here's another Boutique 9 heel that's drivin' me wild! The Boutique 9 'Val' ankle boot measures at 4 1/2" of heel, and 1" of platform, making this a daring (but stylishly attainable!) little bootie. I don't know about you, but these scream Rihanna to me (on one of her not-too-too-crazy days, that is)! They've got that hard attitude to them, but are offset with femininity by the chunky side bow.

Ok, and just to add a splish splash of color to this daredevil'd post, I've uncovered the Calvin Klein 'Remini' Peeptoe Sandals from their hiding place on Macys.com (also found at Zappos, 6pm, Bloomingdale's, and Dillard's in different colors/styles/prices). Triple multi-colored straps, sweet little back zipper, and elegantly covered platform make these over 5-incher sandals a simply gorgeous choice to throw on with the most basic of outfits that need a little kick or color.
So do yourself a favor and walk up to that hunky co-worker and strike up a convo, or order that menu item you've never had, or hey...even purchase a striking shoe that you never thought you'd buy! I dare you.
