I’ve been doing a lot of shopping…uh, I mean research lately and the one thing I keep noticing as I peruse the shoe section of my favorite department stores is BIG shoes. And I’m not talking size here people…I’m talking huge platforms, crazy toes, and generally over-sized footwear that look like they were made for tiny dinosaurs. I mean have you seen the Jeffrey Campbell Lita Platform boots…where do you go in these??
I’m not sure who’s wearing these shoes (I’ve only ever seen these worn by very fashion-forward bloggers and on one girl at The Grove who should not have been wearing them) or if they’re even wearable?? I like to think that I’m pretty open to trends and new fashions when it comes to shoes but this just seems a little too big of a step…no pun intended.
Here’s my other question…are these even cute? I get that there’s a whole movement around not-s0-cute fashion and one of my fave blogs has to be The Man Repeller (check it out if you haven’t already) but at the end of the day I want my shoes to look HOT even if my outfit maybe isn’t so sexy.
Now if I was going to adopt this trend, the only pair of “big shoes” I might let into my closet have to be these Dolce Vita Jemma Platform boots in red. They’re super cute and I can’t get over how amazing they look in this pic…
So what do you think, are these cheap or chic?
