Will you be sporting a pair of 4+ inch pumps this fall? It seems like platforms have taken over for fall and growing increasingly taller.  The YSL ‘Aliama’ Pump is an almost shocking 5.5 inches with a 1.5 inch front platform. I love the glossy sculpted 4.75 inch heel of the Alexander Wang ‘Natasha’ Choked Pump and you can mimic the look with the glossy front platform of the Velvet Angels Town Peep Toe Pump. The entire Nicholas Kirkwood collection features many different shapes of sculpted platforms and Jil Sander, YSL, Steve Madden, and Giuseppe Zanotti have designs that parallel the style of the “hidden” platform.

I am really enjoying the abundance of suede shoes this fall, whether they are ankle boots or platforms. The YSL booties and pumps that are imitated by Steve Madden are a lovely shade of dove grey. Although I always have some sort of guilt buying blatant copies, I must say that they may be too close to pass up. I also would really appreciate a good 5.5 inches added to my petite stature.
