The exhilaration of wearing platforms is one of my favorite things in the entire world. Feeling taller, more confident, not to mention talented. Platforms are definitely not inherently simple to walk in (shout-out to my YRU PLATFORMS for making me eat shit in public countless times). The shoes I am wearing – Jeffrey Campbell’s Nightwalker – were extremely fun to work with, as they are extremely bizarre, but I was able to incorporate them into a casual daytime outfit and draw quite a bit of attention to myself walking around downtown Tempe. My new favorite look is allowing two of my favorite things – babydoll dresses and large heels – to collide together and become confident, but everyday street fashion that is anything but ordinary.
