Look down, then up, and down again. Watching fashion shows during the Fall/Winter ’13 presentations was like viewing a vertical tennis game every time the models walked the runways.
Most of us have stood on an island at some point in our lives. A Caribbean island, Staten Island, the island of Manhattan and my new favorite, island platforms. Having good balance and wanting to tower over everyone else around you are reasons enough to own some island platforms heels. These type of islands come in pairs and cost much less than what some celebs paid for their piece of private land to walk on.
A recent visit to JCrew resulted in me trying on a special pair of shoes, their Mona patent leather mary jane heels. No more than 5 seconds after the last button was in place I had a flashback which can only be compared to food critic, Anton Ego’s, childhood memory in the movie Ratatouille. My very first MJ’s (not Marc Jacobs) were flat, patent leather, and black. Worn with white lace-trimmed socks to church, they were the shoes that made me feel like a little princess, and were part of my first few outfits I put together that didn’t require my mother’s help. Who can forget the first shinny thing that made them feel special?!
