Platform Pretty


Did anyone else (above the age of 18) watch the series finale of The Hills last night? I sure did! Went to Taco Tuesday with my main man and afterward, he generously let me curl up on the couch and hog the tube for a few hours of my MTV-junkfood. I have to say, it is the end of an era (an era of reality tv my blood pressure & I can surely do without), and it was indeed an interesting ending! Well on The Hills Aftershow the lovely L.A. ladies were all proudly sportin' their best platforms and it got me all MTV-inspired to do a little post-show write up...



Some of you may know after looking at one of my recent posts that I most def have a sick obsession with these Jessica Simpson 'Waleo' Pumps. I keep thinking about them...keeping the last tab on my Firefox browser open on them...I think I'll soon have to breakdown and hit 'add to bag'! I'm feelin' the nude leather color right now--a color bound to make my 5'4"-frame look a tad longer. Not to mention this 5" heel and 1 1/4" platform might help! Haha, ya think?
Comin' in a close 2nd to the JS 'Waleo's is this curvy Steve Madden 'Caryssa' Platform Pump--measuring at that same heel & platform height, but with a slightly more rounded toe. I'd say this is more of an "LC" (aka Lauren Conrad) shoe, wouldn't you?! Classic & soft but still a big edgy.
Speakin' of Lauren's...feast your eyes on these incredible Lauren Jones 'Vicki' Open Toe Pumps! Shimmery & satin all the way up to the peep-toe front, these double-mint platform stilettos make heads spin! With a 5 1/4" heel and a lofty 1 1/2" platform, you best be on your good behavior in these or you'll take a big (yet stylish) spill! But hey, a little tilting risk is nothing compared to how good you'll look!

Standing at a manageable 4 3/4" heel with a 1" platform,
BCBG's 'Estrella' Platforms are true Whitney Port style--unpredictably fresh & fashion forward. Brightly colored leather, stitched up and given sharp cutout detail...I'm wow'd. I can just picture myself in these cool summer pumps for the entire month of July (or what's left of it!). Hot hot hot.
...now all we have to do is find out which platforms Brody would like best, hmmmm!

  1. Yes and what she didn't mention is how she generously let me blow stuff up on Call of Duty Modern Warfare for an hour after the Hills as she wrote this amazing write up... we all relax in our own ways.

  2. Love all of these shoes, I wish I was 5'4" so I could wear them!! I'm 5'7 and my Fiance is 5'9 so the super high heels don't happen too often anymore but I can still drool over them! and you man is too cute with his comment up there!

  15. I adore the LC pair. I'm a Steve Madden fan, although his/her (is there really a Steve Madden?) shoes are not comfortable after about an hour.
