Red Skirt and Platform Pump

I Got this pair of shoes from PayLess. Love em love em love em. Believe it or not, this is the first pair of platform pumps I’ve ever bought. Never had a chunky pair of shoes before.

My mom always told me to wear classic pumps with skinny heels to balance my big calves. I tried platform pumps before, but since I have small feet I looked more like stilt walker in a circus…  For some reason this pair of shoes don’t look too bad on me, apparently since the platforms and the skinny heels balance my calves perfectly. Suddenly I feel really tall.

These platform pumps are not easy to walk on though. I’m wondering how those celebrities can walk with these kinds of shoes all the time. I wore high heel shoes since I was young and I got pretty bad calluses. I can’t walk too long with high heel shoes without getting too much pressure on the bottoms of my feet. Besides that, I don’t want to ruin my knees for fashion’s sake. In the long term, I don’t think wearing very high heeled shoes all the time is good for your knees.

My husband loves these shoes on me but he said he missed his old petite, shorty wife. I think he’s not used to seeing me taller (heheh).
