Shoe of the Week: Lovely Leather Platforms

This past week has been miserable.  Snow, sleet and cold horrible days have been slowly scraping away at my sunny disposition, and cracks of gloominess were beginning to show.

That was until I went on my “cheer myself up shoe surf” during which I came across a marvellously cheerful pair of platform sandals by Donna Karan.

These stunners are completely on trend for the coming seasons.  The square block heel is totally in for spring/summer 2011, as are platforms: a trend double whammy!

Aren’t they gorgeous?  The leather resembles a really pretty snakeskin, with vibrant orange, pink yellow and brown hues.  Heel height is 5.5 inches, and platform height is 1.6 inches.

They’d work perfectly with a little pair of denim shorts…
