Ohhhhhh, those Miu Miu glittery beauties. So glam!

Mmmmm, nothing beats those YSL Tributes I reckon. Although I'm enamoured by them all. I've always had a fascination for all things platformed (not to mention it makes life easier for those of us who love heels).

Congrats to fashion cofectionary on her win too!

hope you're having a great week CC

I love plataforms!! I'm sooo bad on heels that plataforms can be the only way I can use high heel shoes.

Watching your pics, I reminded a movie about plataform boots made by steel (It was "Kinky Boots") for transgender people, very interesting!

Jim @ CoolStuffForDads.com said...

These platform shoes look great but I am not sure how women actually walk in them. Sometimes you can't let function get in the way of good fashion!
