SHOE STOPPER


I love wedge sandals for height and for the bold statement they add to any outfit.

These stunning platform sandals from Jeffrey Campbell check all the (shoe) boxes — they are comfortable, they are unique, and they are gorgeous. The autumnal colour theme of burnt orange and moss green are offset by the four-inch platform base. And I absolutely adore the play of textures between the satiny, pumpkin and the shiny green straps that curve up the foot.

Even the box the Jeffrey Cambells come in captures the playfulness.

FYI: Jeffrey Campbell is not a person but a group of stylists intent on pushing the envelope in shoe design. The shoes are edgy, sexy, and bold. What I love about platforms is that they give me some much-appreciated extra inches and they add a jolt of panache to any outfit.

The Damita Wedge is a sexy platform sandal from Michael Kors that fits my foot like a glove. I love the pale gold metallic body, the jute wedge heel, and the gold zipper that holds the shoe cage. Once again, these wedge sandals add height (to me!) and a bold statement to any outfit.

This outfit brings me a lot of joy. You're hearing it from me — you can wear white jeans after Labour Day and you can wear white with cream. I've paired Zara white jeans with a Zara cream colour coat. The slim lapel and simple silhouette of the coat goes perfectly with the jeans. And who doesn’t love a splash of colour? The orange-red scoop neck T-shirt adds interest to the outfit. And those shoes! The gold metallic shoe gives texture and finishes the look.
