Real v. Steal: Jeffrey Campbell Platform Booties

Sunday, October 21, 2012

I have been noticing platform booties everywhere lately. Last week when I attended the Gypsy Junkies show in LA, they used all Jeffrey Campbell footwear. Then, I watched the Project Runway season finale, and Fabio styled his models with these chunky platform ankle boots as well.


I stated a few months ago, that taupe booties were on my wishlist for fall. My husband thinks they're hideous, but I wouldn't mind a pair for myself. My only concern is that, they're pretty high, and I might roll an ankle....

I found this Jeffrey Campbell pair at Nordstrom, and they're not too badly priced actually. If you however are on a really tight budget, check out this Qupid pair from Zoo Shoo.





How do you feel about the platform trend lately? 
Will you be investing in any?

i like the bootie on the right better. Not into platforms the way they are being made now. The toe and sole being one big thing turns me off and often the wearer is really thin so it makes the foot look really big. I liked the platforms that the sole and the foot part were different colors.

That's such a great deal, and I actually like the "steal" ones much better!

I don't need any more booties, but those are great! I also noticed that modcloth is selling a super cheap version of those expensive ass J. Campbell shoes with the weird cut-out platform and the spikes. I am very very very tempted, though I'm definitely not bad ass enough to pull them off.

I'm not a fan of the Jeffrey Campbell ones. The "steal" ones on the other hand I love!
