Ankle Breakers

I wore my new Steve Madden heels today and nearly fell down the stairs. Actually, I did fall down the stairs, but I caught myself on the railing before I had gone far. I’m starting to think these shoes were not a wise purchase.


Dress, Ann Taylor Loft. Belt, Buckle. Necklaces, Target and Forever 21. Shoes, Steve Madden. Cardigan (below), To the Max. Bag (also below) and earrings, No Boundaries.

The belt (also a recent purchase), I love. I like wide, stretchy belts. They create an hourglass look without discomfort.

Too bad. They're gorgeous!

I love every element of this - the styling of the necklaces is genius. And I'm sorry that the heels are probably going back, because I agree, they are gorgeous! All of the accessories here really take it the next level!

Small Time Style

I have the same problem with shoes (and am rocking the scars to prove it). They are gorgeous though, maybe you could wear them to events where you're sitting down?

Beth said...

I agree with Emma- there are so many event that are three feet of walking and 4 hours of sitting. These shoes are perfect for those events.

What a shame those shoes aren't very practical, because they are so stylish. I agree with others, maybe you could wear them for events you won't be walking so much or standing for too long.

Good luck!

Steve Madden hates women: cutest shoes, but each pair is painful in its own way.

I really like those layered necklaces.

Those shoes are H-O-T.

I love those necklaces together!

And yikes, be careful. No shoes are worth injury. :)

Despite the risk factor, this is my favorite outfit!

This brings a whole new meaning to "killer shoes"!

I've had a few issues with the ultra-high platforms. Good balance required!

They are mighty awesome, though. You look great in this outfit.

Those shoes are rockin'! I love Steve Madden shoes but it is evident he does not walk in them.. i don't think? Anywho I have a new black pair that I love to look at and sit while wearing... I call them secretary shoes. Unfortunately I'm not a secretary so when I wore them to work this week I crawled home...

A couple of weeks ago I managed to fall down the stairs wearing heels I have worn dozens of times before and had no problem with. I say give your feet a break - they were just having a bad day. The shoes are too cute to suffer for it!
