Charlotte Olympia: Women's Paloma Pump

Charlotte Olympia: Women's Paloma Pump

Most of the 5-plus inch heels I have seen lately look either flimsy or tacky or both. Somehow, this shoe designer has managed to create a sophisticated platform pump, up to and including the ruffle detail at the back of the ankle. You may not wear these to work, but this would be my choice for everything from a hot date to a speaking engagement.
