I'm kind of obsessed with velvet platform heels right now. I think they look adorable. Should I find a pair in gray or red, they would be an instant buy. Never mind the fact that it'd be impossible to walk in them- especially as most of the pairs I've come across have a heel anywhere from 5 to 6".
Take these, for instance. Adorable! And, here's the best part- with shoes like that, who needs pepper spray? Take those puppies off and you got yourself a weapon. (I kid, I kid... kind of.)
