When we were in NYC last weekend, I made time to stop at the Saks Fifth Avenue Shoe Floor.
Of course, right?!?
Both Bergdorfs and Saks were having a major sale and shoes (and ladies) were all over the place. While I love a good sale, situations like that tend to overwhelm me (which is another reason why I shop online so much) so I ended up not purchasing a single shoe.
But I did linger for a moment by the Fall 2012 Miu Miu display. As always, the Miu Miu line had some of my favorite designs for the season with great curvy heels and glitter perfection.
But as I was standing there admiring the heels, I heard the most shocking thing!
My husband, who doesn't opinion often on the fashion front, stated he thought platforms were trashy!
What, what, WHAT!!!!
Not that this statement would stop me from wearing a platformed heel (especially that blue and gold studded number above) but I was floored. I see quirky and maybe clunky-ly adorable but not cheap or anything. Bizarre! Sure some platformed heels can have a "bad reputation" but not all of them.
What do you think? Do you think all platforms look tacky or are some saved by their design and materials?
