Lara Jones is fierce, and I absoloutely LOVE the way she re-launched her website What’s Haute in the Streets. I landed on it this morning (again), and lost complete track of time scrolling through the images, adding to my wish list, and getting ideas…because the pulse of life is centered on ideas.

Every time I wear my cheetah print platform wedges out I get major compliments. Platform wedges are definitely IN, and so comfortable I can get through an entire day at work on my feet without a problem. A wedge heel gives you stable height, and looks especially elegant when paired with fitted skirts. To date, I have 3 pairs of wedges and I love them all. So as you prepare your cute summer outfits, make sure to include a pair (or two) of sky-high platform wedges.

I’m currently obsessed with these Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Jasmin’ Ankle Wrap Raffia Wedge Sandals:


At any rate, if you don’t have $700 to spare, you can get a similar look with these $60 Chestowedge wedges by Jessica Simpson:


Designers are making it clear: platform shoes are a simple yet striking footwear choice for summer. It is a fashion forward fetish-worthy footwear (almost) everyone can sport. I recommend getting them in nude or neutral colors so that they can go with everything!
