{style inspiration: perfect platforms}


. . . a new pair of white strappy summer wedges earlier last week, for traipsing about town and blossom-laden walks with the dog, the third pair of wedges already this spring, and summer has yet to begin, and yet, after happening across these utterly charming prada platforms {above}, perfectly paired with pressed trousers turned in an ultra-chic french cuff in the most enchanting shade of august sunrise, am becoming quite smitten with platforms and their teetering heights and already imagine them with romantically flirty & lacy summer dresses for quiet lunch dates on cobbled terraces surrounded by spring flower boxes of pussy willows and daffodils . . .


1. chloë sevigny for opening ceremony platform mary janes | 2. lanvin patent wedge| 3. prada t-strap cork platform sandals | 4.
prada suede sandals | 5. { & last} giuseppe zanotti high platform clog heels | 6. krugh t-strap crochet platform pumps | 7. chloë sevigny for o.c. mary jane platform | 8. charlotte olympia carmen raffia wedge

{p.s.} favourite is number four x

Love #6. Would totally have to bring them along in my work tote and change once I got to the office.

julieanne -- it's lunch, so one would be seated -- no danger there! {unless, perhaps, one had one too many mimosas?}

Agree with Julieanne. Those shoes are what my mum would refer to as dinner shoes. Very little walking involved :)

Oh yes, I love this look to pieces!

I have yet to find a pair of platforms that I love and yet, here of course, I find many! (no.02 and 04 are my most favorite) As for the rolled hem, I have been doing it for years, but only out of necessity and being all of 5'3" (plus 1/4" thanks to the chiropractor, haha) Up until about 6 months ago, I had not found a really good tailor, and liked to keep my pants long so that I could roll them up or under or scrunched. Now all I need is platforms like these :)

You always have the best inspiration -- thank you. Hope you are having a lovely Saturday evening...


p.s Blogger has certainly not been fun since the issues of last week. I have lost a few things also, but was more sad to find out that you had to re-build entire posts -- goodness me!

Your style sense is impeccable... never do I cease to find perfect ideas for everything here. I believe you quite possibly have found the most beautiful of all the platforms in existence, these are gorgeous!

Like you, I am especially drawn to the elegance of the Prada design...the very most. :) Also having been always quite the fan of the mary jane style, the chloë sevigny would probably be next in line, and those charlotte olympia's are quite stunning as well!

I thought of you, having posted a new skirt design... would love to know what you think.. :)
Have a gorgeous weekend!

well, you all can fight over all the shoes. I swoon for that precious little French bulldog. I have a known weakness for them...one in particular.

The Suede Prada wedges are gorgeous - but I must confess, I think that the crochet detail on No. 6 makes them the prettiest!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
