specific heights

Dress: H&M. Belt: Topshop (bought yrs ago). Shoes: Jessica Simpson. Shades: Urban Outfitters. Cycling shorts: (unseen). Stone ring: YSL. Gold bang: LowLuv/Erin Wasson courtesy of Tobi. Cuff: London street vendor (Notting Hill market). Nail pendant: Courtesy of Fashionology. Long pendant & fringe bag: Foley & Corinna vintage.
A few days ago I went to dinner and gave the JS heels a whirl (took quick pics outdoors first). These buggers are so flipping high but the platform does make them comfortable.
Don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t do a cart wheel in them, but for pavement stomp factor – they work.
I think this is the first time I’ve shown me wearing them outdoors. Last time I posted them was here.

ps. I’m digging around at home for my receipt for the boots below. I bought them on clearance and the price got slashed again. Arrghhh! I need a price adjustment but where is the bloody receipt???

    You & the entire look=Just plain Gorg! No matter the comfort I could not walk around in them as I am already almost 5′ 10 and I get enough people stating ” your/she’s tall” when wearing flats!
