Platform Heels (advice from Tyra Banks on Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion)

South Asian brides are usually weighed down with heavily embroidered outfits (which weight a ton - no lie) & lots of jewelry. That's why selecting the right heels is so important for the big day & is usually one thing that I've heard South Asian brides stress over, especially if they are short. During these conversations, I'm surprised at how many women don't know about the advantage of platform heels. Some women are too scared to try them because the heel on those is usually too high. But platform heels are actually très comfortable for your big day or on any day of the week!

Mehak (my best friend ♥) is too weighed down by her outfit so she's getting help with putting her platform heels on. I went shoe shopping with her & made sure she got platform heels!

Instead of explaining the advantages of platform heels, I'll share a video with you in which the (retired) supermodel Tyra Banks talks about them.

Yeah, Tyra did her math wrong while explaining platform heels, but you're smart enough to figure out what she's getting at.

The Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion series is a part of Tyra's new project/website called Type F. Click the image below to check out the Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion series in which Tyra & Andre collaborate to give awesome fashion tips & a short history lesson on the topic of the day. I'm loving the series so far.

Ladies, if you haven't tried out platform heels, please do. Your feet will thank you for minimizing the torture... to an extent ;)

I love her website. I just recently got round to watching all the webisodes of fa fa fa fashion.

Yet it's true platforms are so much better to wear ... I have quite a few pairs that often get referred to as stripper heels lol
