This year, I was all about flatforms. Flatforms are basically flat platform wedges. Since they are flat, they give you the height without the ache brought about by heels and arches. They are so comfortable, I wear mine all day! Being vertically challenged, these babies definitely give me the boost I need especially with trouser jeans and flared jeans back in fashion, I need not worry about having them tailored. I love them!
I recently scored 2 pairs of flatforms at Piperlime. They are the Jenicah sandals by Tinley Road. They were on clearance for only $14.97 a pair! You get free shipping too! Of course, at that price, I had to get both colors! I like feeling tall without having to pay retail. Hehehe!
When they arrived, I was instantly in love! Of course, the straps aren't leather but for $14.97, I can definitely deal with that. They have this suede-ish feel to it but it's all cool. The platforms are also very light and they are made of wood. I walked around the premises and I was just so giddy with excitement! I was instantly 4 inches taller! These are definitely a MAJOR score! Yay me! (Note: If you plan on purchasing these lovelies, I would suggest going a size down. I usually wear a 6.5-7 but I ended up getting a 6 and they fit perfectly!)
Wow! All I can say is that everything looks different up here...
