I can’t say my lust for platforms to wear with skinnies and long dresses isn’t now satisfied. The sandals have already been worn for a night out with a sequin mini dress (forgot camera that night).
Scored at DSW.
O. Em. Geeeeee.

    You already know that I’m posting on this because I honestly, can’t stop talking about it (and I’m sure my boyfriend would like me to this very moment). But thank you AGAIN Karen.

    I looked at the wedges but I wouldn’t be able to pull them off like you. My legs are currently on American Gladiator status, eek.

    And @ someone who asked about sizing: I don’t know about you Karen, but for me, I thought they ran a bit on the big side. I’m typically a 40 and ended up with two pairs of 39s. I sometimes have done 39.5 but never a 39. I guess that’s just the cut of the shoe. I can’t wait to post pics wearing them — now I just need new clothes!

  22. Astérisque says:

    the second heels are pure love!

  23. Camille says:

    Hey Karen!
    I found you on and loved your style! You inspire because I feel like I can finally look up to somebody who is my skin color! I don’t feel so bad anymore looking at all the pale faces.
    Keep it up, darling! You changed this life 🙂

  27. Camilla says:
