Now I'm not one to follow trends but I haven't failed to notice the abundance of platforms and wedges in the shops at the moment. There are some really fab shoes on offer on the high street, especially in New Look (which I would post if you could have access their images!), but the one thing that really really bugs me is that on the majority of modern shoes the platform curves up at the front, which I think looks kinda weird and personally find really difficult to walk in - I keep feeling like I am going to tip forward! So with this in mind I this weeks Etsy feature is all about platforms of the vintage variety, enjoy!
