Sky High YSL Platform Heels

Recently I am very much enamoured with sky high heels. I think it must be my petite height. Anyhoo, the color red has been on my radar for a while and I have not been able to find the perfect pair of red heels. The other day I saw these at YSL boutique and feel in adoration with this pair of lovely immediately. Looking at the platform, a gal would think this pair of heels would be heavy as heck. WRONG!!! To my amazement and delight, these lovelies were very light when I picked one up to examine. So I asked the SA to give me my size, but it was not meant to be. I have fat feet. The toe box in the front was too narrow for my fat wide feet. *Sad!!!* I am still drooling over the color and the style. Even though my toes were in pain, my legs looked a mile long and I looked skinny and tall. For those gals with skinny feet, this pair can be yours for $795. Ouch! Maybe it is a blessing I have fat feet uh! I adore sky high heels, what about you?

  5. everybody and their mama have those shoes, but that is because they are so amazing.
    designers shoes have skyrocketed nowadays, i remember yrs ago they are 400-500, now many are @ 900-1000 range.

  9. I am 5'9 and I love heels... for shorter periods, at least. I usually walk in flats and keep the heels in my bag to put on when I can finally sit down! :)

    I didn't know there was such a thing as "fat" feet... sounds like YSL might need a better fit model for their shoe line.

  10. totally with you!! I can RARELY fit my fat foot into designer shoes ...sometimes if i size up, I can fit it ...but then it has to have a strap or be a boot to stay on. I really wonder who they make those shoes for?

  15. I love that YSL heels but I too, have "fat feet" and a "thin pocket" for that price. Hahaha! Please find something more affordable. I hope you can suggest a substitute with the same platform style and sky-rocketing heels.

  31. Yes! Me too! I love sky high heels. I'm petite too and anything that boosts me up a bit higher is always a great plan.
    And YSL seems to love their high heels. One day I'd love to have a pair!

    Hope you have a great weekend!
