and feel mildly embarassed to say that I've been looking for looks to emulate those fashions. But really - what's to be embarassed about? Aren't we all influenced by trends either consciously or sub-consciously? How much of what we wear/listen to/watch isn't that which has been discovered by someone else? At least I'm honest about it.

The great thing about these shoes is that they have a built in platform so the heels aren't sky-high and they are way more comfortable and easy to walk in.

I would take a dress like this as well.
I can't wear heels that high.
I'm too tall.
(I would be well over 6 ft in 5 inch heels)
but I think what I found is a pretty good substitute.
And they meet the criteria above.
So I'm one step closer
so to speak.
