    Thanks for the great roundup. Personally, I think platforms are really the way to go this fall, and I adore the Joist pair from Anthropologie – so offbeat and stylish. Thus far, I’ve really been loving Aldo’s ‘Fawson’ in gray, and the ‘Segura’ in blue. Both are suede and look fabulous both with slim leg trousers or with leggings and a long sweater.

    I have to wear platform heels! They make high heels so much more comfortable! I just bought some Chinese Laundry strappy platform heels- absolutely live in them! They’re a nude color, so they match with everything! LOVE!

    Great roundup!
