I found a new love in YSL Tribute platform sandals. The story started when I visited YSL boutique with a gal pal but ended up trying on this pair of lovely at the urging of the most insistent sale associate. What was a gal to do when the nice SA gave me my size, right?! It would be rude to hurt her feeling. *wink*
I am actually still on a hunt for a pair of savvy red shoes. So far I have not much luck in the red department, although I have had luck with every other colors. Of course when I saw a pair of deep red Tribute platform sandal (might I add on sale), I made a beeline for them. I was slightly hesitant because of the heel height and wooden platform. The Tribute heels are 4 inches without the platform. In reality the heel is closer to 6 inches. I was convinced I would fall very ungracefully on my face and break my ankles in the process. However, I was wrong, even the wooden platform didn't weight as much as imagined. These super high platforms were solid and easy to wear. I was able to sashay across the floor. Imagine that! The camel color from Fall 2009 collection retails for $760 and the deep red is on sale now. I forgot to check the sales price but they should be at least 50% off now. What do you think of super high heels?
