Walking on gold

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:

Tea Party by Chinese Laundry

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.

    Love the dress and yes the shoes would be perfect for it. Pretty sure if I tried walking in something like that I’d break my fool neck. I am a klutz. heh.
