OK, so some of those made my feet hurt while looking at them, while others were some beautiful eye candy for me! There are definitely some that I would love to be adding to my closet....and soon:)

Oh yippee! Thanks for a fabulous giveaway!

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. These are all great. I really love the 2nd one on the 3rd row. But all of them are ultra cool. Take care. Cheers!

Erika said...

There's something about the coupling with the socks that makes me fully obsessed with Burberry Prorsum. And the color of Rock & Republic's Suede Platform Pumps is love. And Alexander McQueen...enough said! Fabulous post love! :)

Jacqueline said...

Congrats Heather! I love shoes way too much so this post gave me lots of eye candy! xoxo

What a collection, CC! Among the really crazy ones, I found some especially pretty shoes, my fav is the Oscar de la Renta pair, I'm keen on the colors of it.

Dani @ Weddings Fresh said...

my dear, those Fendi's are amazing--but i would probably fall down and die if i had to wear them so i will admire them from afar...not to mention i don't have the proper resources to actually have them in my possession :) fab post, darling!

Haven and Home said...

I think I grew just looking at these, at least my wish list did!

Diane said...

Shoe orgasm! I wish there was a blog that would post like this every day! One shoe a day is not nearly enough for me. I didn't think I liked platforms until a year ago. Now I'm addicted...who knew that they make you look skinnier!! I go from 5'3" to
5'8" to 9". What's not to love?! There are too many platforms here to comment on that I just adore. Thank you...you wonderful blogger!

Melanie's Randomness said...

Ohhhh I wish I didn't have high arches. I would wear each and every one of them!!!

Vicki said...

Mimi said...

Gorgeous!! Platforms aren't really practical for everyday, except for maybe girls like me who could use the extra lift. :) I'm loving the Burberry and Fendi shoes.

clarewbrown said...

Ahhhh shoes! These are gorgeous like works of art. I want them all, I wish could wear heels every day. But my feet would be none too happy

Marz said...

What a gorgeous and stunning post. I need me at least one of the pairs that you have posted here. I love the louboutains, but just because they are timeless and classic.

HeatherClark said...

i love them all seriously

MizzJ said...

Every time I see those McQueen platforms, it reminds me of that goat dude from Chronicles of Narnia! Am I the only one who sees this?

Anyways, my favourite look is Burberry Prorsum (of course) but the whole socks/heels thing is something I just haven't been able to find the right socks for - any suggestions?

Laura in Paris said...

Would love to be able to walk on those shoes ... to look taller!

Maud and Penny said...

McQueen pushes boundaries !! I'm sure this freaky shape will give some more wearable babies sooner or later. They look freaky yet strangely relevant, I love them
