Today I'm wearing these crystal-embellished black and pewter platform sandals which I purchased from THE OUTNET in their mega 80% off clearance.  I first came across Kat Maconie two years ago and I don't know what it is about her designs, but they rocketed up my New Favourite Shoes list.  I finally gave in and these are my very first pair of her shoes...

Black and pewter leather, 4.5 inch heel with 0.5 inch partially concealed platform, crystal stud embellishments, cutouts, peep-toe. Exposed zip fastening at back of heel.

I like her distinctive shapes and chunky heel - maybe it's because I'm always running around but I'd choose a sturdier heel over a spindly Nicholas Kirkwood stiletto any day (I do love Kirkwood's designs, but I went to a sample sale recently and even though the prices were £30-£150 from £400-£900, I didn't love any style enough to splurge (admittedly, this was just before Christmas and my purse was like a barren wasteland).  Brian Atwood's designs are great and of course everyone loves Christian Louboutin (although, after years of being everyone's go-to luxury shoe brand, aren't his red soles a bit... obvious? I still want these, though...)  So, yes - I think my New Favourite Shoe Designer is indeed Kat Maconie. If the amount of times I've glanced down at my new shoes is anything to go by, I'm really rather smitten...
