This Week's Fabulosity: Charlotte Olympia

I'll be the first to admit that I don't like platform pumps (Manolo Blahnik agrees with me).
I think they look a bit tacky, cheap and classless, not to mention they make your calves look
like they're carrying water-weight. And I haven't caved in to buying them for all these years
they've been popular. But I'm having second thoughts to my dismay of platforms due to
these sky-high Charlotte Olympia pumps. They are a sight to be seen for sure.

The half-Brazilian, half-English designer's creations are inspired by the glamour of the 1940's,
and her statement-making sandals have proved a hit with style-setters such as
Olivia Palermo and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Do you dare to take a walk on the wild side in these leopard-print calf hair pumps?
This glamorous pair are part of the designer's Bride collection and come with lace-trimmed
stockings to complement the duck-egg leather finish - a way to wear "something blue" on the wedding day.

Does that date me. I hate those platforms. The shoe itself is certaily gorgeous the platform looks like it's trying so hard.

Hi Danielle,
I just wanted to say I have the same taste for shoes and other things even though I'm 6 ft tall))) Some people find it intimidating but I just love wearing high heels and these shoes look great would love to have them. You have a great taste!
