Step Stool Platforms


Have you wished you were a bit or a lot taller?  I have.  Just one inch added to my legs and I’d be so happy. But wearing heels hurt too much ever since I had my two little boys.  I never believed the stories of how a mother’s feet would grow a size after each pregnancy.  Until, it happened to me.  I now affectionately call my feet – Shrek feet.  I don’t want to squeeze my Shrek feet into heels anymore.  I bought my first pair of Robert Clergerie platform wedges 3.5 years ago and I became obsessed.  I own several pairs as I view them as my health/wellness and art investments.  I’m  much happier and more focused when I have happy feet.  I don’t enjoy limping around and hanging onto Theo’s arms for support.  I also don’t like taking off my shoes on the dance floor.  I also view the shoes as wearable sculptures (well, it makes me feel better about the purchases).  In the past, I found them on sale at Barney’s and here’s another pair that I would love to own. Except, I don’t have an office to go to and show them off to my colleagues.  Instead I illustrated the platform wedge on a step stool.  The 4.5″ heel height allows me to grab the usual out-of-reach objects.  But more importantly, they act as a step stool when I sit down at a movie theater for date nights.  No more dangling feet means no more numb feet!  Definitely worth the investment.

    […] 4.  Definitely want to stay comfy and don’t want to hobble by my hubby’s side in fancy heels I can’t walk in!  I opted for these illustworthy Balenciaga Embellished Cut-Out Flats.  My hubby loves me in flats and I know why.  I’m more confident in flats.  I feel secure in knowing that I’m not going to topple over and I can walk faster in flats with a perfect posture.  And I’m in such a better mood because my feet are not in excruciating pain (unless I wear my Clergerie platforms).
