Writer/People editor Janet Mock, whom I’ve been following on Twitter for about a year now, was headed for the GLAAD Awards in San Francisco yesterday, and she sent up a shot of her new shoes: “Living 6 inches taller,” she said.
I of course inquired, and this seems to be the shoe in question:
At first I misidentified this as a Badgley Mischka shoe they have several sandals of similar stature and strappiness but no, this is “Tea Party” from Chinese Laundry, and yes, the heel is six inches high, though the inch-and-a-half platform mitigates that a bit. And at $89 or so, it’s way cheaper than anything Badgley Mischka is likely to come up with. Besides, the shoe is a perfect match, sparklewise, for the black dress she wore.
