Birthday Shoes

Published in: Daily Beauty

Yeah, I totally caved on the Michael Kors Braided Chain Platforms. My justifications: 1) you only turn 36 once, 2) they were on sale, and 3) I didn’t already have any “biker bar meets the Hamptons” sandals in my closet.

I’m actually really, REALLY thrilled with them. They fit true to size, the leather’s uber-soft, and the heel feels nice and sturdy.


The only potential problem is actually getting into the shoe. I have to angle and shimmy my foot a certain way to get it into the three braided straps. Not hard, but it does take a minute.


Other than that, they’re perfection.
