Hot or Not – The Flatforms

Hot or Not - The Flatforms

Whenever the fashion gods provide us with new trends my heart starts to dance the Rumba (aka flutters in excitement), and my creditcard starts to quiver (aka fear). Usually ready to follow the fashion mantra of every new season with glee, my dancing might come to an abrupt stop this summer. I should probably be glad that after years of squeezing my toes into sky high heels and platforms (to elongate appearance), designers are now blessing us with more comfortable gear. But I have to say ladies: I’m not.

Here comes the “flatform”, and with it a look that comes very close to Godzilla after he broke his ancles and attached two pieces of chunky wood to fix them. Surely you'll be able to walk these shoes for hours, but be assured too: it won’t look very elegant - at all. So, hmmmmmm. Am very interested in the opinion of my lovely heel-sista’s: would you wear them ladies? What do you think.... hot? Or not?

Today’s shoes are Derek Lam, Jeffrey Campbell, Need Supply Co.

P.S.: My creditcard stopped shivering and it’s my heart now experiencing a sudden bout of fear: Just had a look at the footwear of Céline for next winter...

This blog is intended to be fun and entertaining and the world of high heels isn’t really a place for politics. Well, perhaps the odd discussion about whether or not it’s politically correct to wear flats in daylight or sneakers outside a gym. With the big night that will have me glued to the TV until early morning coming up (no, not the Oscar's), I feel tempted to leave the dance floor of talking heels though to join a much more slippery stage: the US elections.

Having followed the long and most expensive presidential race in American history (*sigh* how many good things could you achieve with that money - aka invest it all in Net-a-porter...), am actually concerned. Besides my reservations about a challenger who reveals his real thoughts only on secretly recorded videos (imagine your boyfriend would do so!), am also having difficulty picturing a First Lady who follows a religion that is focused (sartorially speaking) on modesty. Above-the-knee skirts, low-cut tops (yes, I know that high necklines are trending) but worst: very high heels, are all discouraged. So I guess you know which team I'm on and leaving all puns aside (for once) will be anxiously awaiting the polls. Simply hoping: "Yes we can". "Change". "Forward".

Now back to heels.
