These platforms are not mine but my friend Situ's. Although I have the exact same in black, I'm loving hers more (and she likes mine. I believe there's a thing called swapping). It so happened that when I bought them I never thought that they'd have them in any other color besides black so I went ahead and bought them. If I had known what was stuffed inside one of their cupboards, I'd be showing you my own pair.
The straps of these shoes reminded me of the sandals by Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung's Spring Collection 2011.
I'm actually not a high heels person (although there's no denying that there can't be any substitute for heels for parties and formal wear). You can always find me wearing my moccasins with anything, just anything! I simply cannot imagine myself teetering in some inches high shoes in my everyday life. Admittedly, I'm envious of those girls who comfortably feign pain and make walking in the Kathmandu streets so easy. But honestly, I don't find any practicality in wearing high heels in Kathmandu (everyday that is) when even watching girls wobble their way is painstakingly hurtful to the eye.
Sometimes I test my abilities to see if I belong to that poised grouping. One day is enough and for the next few weeks or couple of months, my shoes stay idle at home. So it goes without saying that my black platforms won't get too much of fresh air.
