I finally did it. Purchased a pair of FIVE INCH heels, which, as a confirmed member of the mid-heel league, I swore I would never do.
These are from Shoemint, one of those book-of-the-month shoe clubs. I didn't join, I got these during one of their buy something without having to join promotions. (Normally, they charge your cc $79.99 each month unless you opt out, that's why these marketing schemes are sometimes called "negative option" programs.)
The verdict -- good quality, better than I expected. However, they are definitely a sitting shoe, even with a 1.5 inch platform. My calves started to cramp after 4 hours of wearing.
Outfit details: tee from UO, tuxedo pants Rag & Bone via Barney's, watch Invicta, pendant YochiNY. Worn untucked because I forgot my belt, but I might like tucking better. And the asymmetrical sleeves are so intentional! (Not.)
Thanks for looking! Have you joined one of those shoe or top of the month clubs? Would you?
