The double platform heels are your best friend, even though they may look like they are made to kill someone. Yes, the heels are deceiving, making you believe the shoes have a higher arch then they really do. The booties are always cute; however you have to be smart on your selection. It’s important to get a pair of booties that aren’t made up of heavy fabric or else it is too wintry. The 80%20 booties (first shoe on second row) are perfect because it is made out of a light fabric, the colors are cool for the season and it has ventilation for the feet. There isn’t much explanation needed when it comes to the sandals, or the basic heel.

Ladies just remember you don’t have to kill your piggy bank to kill every other girl when you’re out. Search and you will find. Looking for more heels for a bargain, check out some other sites like karmaloop, endless, and asos - just to name a few.
