Right now, it’s all about PLATFORMS and PRINTS!
Bringing back the ultra glam style of the funky 70s, chunky cork platforms and wedges with cheetah, leopard, zebra, and multi-colored prints are rocking the fashion scene right now.
Busy prints like multi and leopard work best with solids and neutral colors but BLING is the thing. Bronze and gold accessories compliment the brown and nude undertones in prints like leopard and cheetah prints effortlessly while silver and metallic will usually enhance everything else. But keep in mind, less is more – the #1 fashion commandment [Okay maybe not #1…but you get the point].
Check out these Christian Louboutins [pictured above] from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection:
Of course these bad boys are gonna run you about $600, so for the “Recessionista Divas” out there, Steve Madden [pictured below] has a similar style for $129.95, to give you an idea of what to look for.
ALDO and Bakers also have several styles to choose from if those prices don’t work either. Trust me, I understand…ballin’ on a budget aint easy LOL

Platform shoes can be traced back centuries and have an extensive history. Ancient civilizations used platform shoes for various reasons. It is believed that platform shoes were worn in Ancient Greece to enhance the appearance of theatre actors and actresses. In the 16th century, it is believed that Europeans worn platform shoes to keep their feet clean and dry in the muddy streets. When they would sink into the loose soil barren roads, the platform of the shoe would sink, keeping their feet clean and dry.
