Platforms.










Outfit: dress - H&M, sweater and bracelet - Free People, platforms - Charles David (Nordstrom), and nails - OPI Panda-monium pink.

I was shopping at Nordstrom (back in February) and saw these red/cork beauties. I thought they would be perfect for spring, but wasn't sure if they would look good since I don't have the tiniest feet - they're more like flippers. I'm pretty sure I went in twice to look at them, and once more to actually try them on. The Nordstrom sales guy definitely worked for his commission that day - we tried on different sizes and colors. Finally, I decided I wasn't going to let my shoe size hold me back, and just embrace my size 9 that I was blessed with. Sold. I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a little like a Spice Girl in them, but they are super comfortable.



Are you on Poses or Fashiolista? I just made my accounts this past week and am already hooked - great sources for outfit inspiration.
