Rarely do I get SO excited over a comeback.
For the last few years, I’ve watched platform pumps get higher, chunkier, and uglier. Much to my chagrin; models, actresses, celebrities and average women everywhere seemed to lap up the trend, taking their legs to new heights (5.25″ and higher, to be exact). While I dabbled in the style-du-jour only slightly – a pair of peep toe pumps here, a pair of platform wedges there – I inwardly cringed every time I clonked around in them. To me, platform pumps are the antithesis of elegance; a boorish style that very few women can pull off with refinement and grace.
(Have you ever seen Kate Middleton galloping around in sky-high platforms? No, neither have I. #restmycase)
And so I’ve been waiting patiently… very patiently… for the return of my all-time favourite look: Pointy Toe Pumps.
Oh, how I’ve missed you! Nothing elongates the leg with sophistication and style more than a perfectly sculpted 4″ pump. They suit every height, frame and age. They dress up jeans and effortlessly go from boardroom to bar. They lend a sexy silhouette to practically every outfit imaginable.
And, they’re making a comeback.
Don’t believe me? May I offer the following pictures as evidence:
Ladies, I am so looking forward to fall. Time to break out the hot little numbers I’ve stashed away for too long while weathering the platform phenomena. Mama needs to get her pointy toe on!
