Red platforms for a valentine wedding (or any other time)

By on Nov 5th

41JO6gcAdTL._SL160_I'm using the fact that some of you are planning February weddings as an excuse to indulge my red wedding shoe whims. I started by nosing through red platforms, but it was like a rabbit hole of heels and buckles and sweet smelling leather … the next thing I knew I was peeking at red boots, too. I just knew I wanted red and romance and a bit of kick — mostly platforms, but a few not. And even one not-red-at-all boot that was just too cute to pass up.

As always, my shoe dalliances run the gamut from silly cheap costume/stripper shoes to "ha ha ha, very funny: that's the same as I'm paying my caterer to feed 150 people" shoes. BLAMMO!
