Top Chunky Heels, Part Two

Top Chunky Heels, Part Two: Which is the Clunkiest of Them All?

I’ve long been an avid proponent of the platform. As chic as single sole pointed toes are, nothing is more comfortable than platforms, and when you wear heels as often as I do (all the time), a little element of comfort goes a long way.

Top Chunky Heels: A Weighty Issue

Those with weak ankles, rejoice! And pretty much all of us can enjoy a break from sky-high stilettos. Because it’s all about the chunky heel right now. When working a heel with some heft, it’s important the shoe have some feminine details. Otherwise, the look gets trashy way too quickly.

Aquazzura Queen Mixed Media Sandals: A Piece of Italy

One of my favorite things to do in Florence is shop at uniquely Florentine boutiques like the new Aquazzura store at the Palazzo Corsini. Besides the concept space serving as the brand’s headquarters and flagship, it’s located in a gorgeous, historical building built by the Medicis in the 15th century that was later bought by Maria Machiavelli.

Last night, I attended my first Footwear News Achievement Awards gala, which for a Shoe Snob is like being a kid in a candy store! I was there to celebrate SJP, winner of “Launch of the Year” for her huge-hit shoe line, SJP by Sarah Jessica Parkericon.

Charlotte Olympia Ranchera Woven High and Low: Rainbow Loom Love

Just as wearable as they are exciting, these rainbow woven sandals from Charlotte Olympia speaks to my fun spirited side while being serious enough for daily wear. It’s a perfect time of year to bring in some color but these will transition seamlessly for resort and of course when Spring comes you will be prepared.

Fausto Puglisi 120MM Leopard Printed Silk Cady Pumps

Fausto Puglisi 120MM Leopard Printed Silk Cady Pumps: A Leopard can Tame Its Spots

By going black and white, this neutral, animal print becomes even more neutral and all without losing any of its intrigue. In fact, this is more mysterious, as the leopard spots are almost indiscernible. It’s the animal print for those who think they’re not animal print Snobs.
