Architect of Style, Curator of Pain . . . The Ultimate Platform Wedge!

I love the art of this shoe! Unfortunately, the longer I look at it, the more I think I can see the model’s foot swelling up and turning red! This looks quite painful and uncomfortable, but how beautiful is the wood pattern and the shape? Even the contrast of the wood and the satin ribbon is intriguing to me. Sadly, I would have to pass on the possibility of obtaining splinters with each step. Never mind the fact that a slightly uncoordinated person, such as myself, is just asking for a very public trip . . . wobble . . . wobble . . . steady . . . steady . . . wait! . . . Oh Noooooooo! . . . slow-mo drop with an accompanying  awkward roll type of catastrophe.

I think I’d rather just keep them on display on my living room shelf, secretly deeming myself a wise curator of style instead of a fashion coward! ☺

Instantaneous Obsession: YSL Leather & Stingray Sandals . . . OMG!!!

Okay, so I realize that my “Instantaneous Obsession” posts on shoes, as of late, have ALL been platform heels. I do have a strange obsession for platform heels, although I personally own very few pair. (I battle with the idea of appearing gargantuan to the rest of the world by adding 5″ of shoe to my existing height of 5′ 11″). I LOVE wearing heels, but it seems that lately, many designers are falsely taken with the idea of “the higher, the better.” I agree, higher heels may look sexier on some styles, but at this stage in my life, practicality tends to win out over the appeal of aching arches and sore feet. I refuse to let go of my heels, and the way they make me feel, but I just wish designers would consider making the same fab shoes with about 2″ less heel. Nevertheless, these stingray and leather sandals from Yves Saint Laurent are a platform-lovin’-girl’s-dream-come-true! I think this shoe is a well executed, elegant combination of textures and spot-on classic color. This is a shoe I would endure the pain for.
