Neon Turquoise

For those of you who've been following and actually reading my blog (yay for literacy....), you should be well aware of my infamous aversion to heat. Not to say that I don't appreciate the sun, but I get really antsy when I start sweating in my Céline. If you intend to approach me on a hot day, start of by offering me an icy cold drink if we're gonna talk business. So when the temperature generously drooped down to actually being chilly at night, I daringly retrieved from the "archive" closet my *gasp* neon Alexander Wang jumper and paired it with some mint turquoise shorts and jewelry, for it's been a while since I've left home decked out in bright colors or "played around" with color blocking. Complimented by tossing on some wrist bling, this is my "Fortnum & Mason Posh Tea Look" or just something along those lines, I can't be bothered to come up with some bullshit excuse for what I'm wearing at the moment. Though I did turn quite a few heads with my neon turquoise combo; but to be honest, I have to give credit to my acrylic Victorian necklace and four inch flatform sneakers. What is it about a platform shoe that always seem to incite people? 

Here's the million dollar question:
Do men feel emasculated if they were to wear a platformed shoe? Does it lengthen the leg but shorten the dick?

P.S. In case you guys didn't see my tweet a while back, I congratulated Michael Ford for winning the Alexander McQueen scarf from my first giveaway and he kindly did a post on it, proof that someone received the scarf. Big thanks again to all that entered the giveaway, more to come I guarantee.

  9. Platforms are not for guys? To me such a statement is plain classical stereotyping, yet sadly at many occasions we still can't avoid that. I say if you dare to wear it, rock that effing platform - the higher the better xoxo
    P.S. That is such a fun statement necklace!

    1. Exactly! It's such a sad world where something that is so playful and acknowledged as is by the world suddenly takes things so seriously when it comes to just a piece of rubber foam under a foot.... Have we as humans really evolved or just like to think that we have..? Glad you like the platform babes! X

  10. Ugh, I hate the heat and trying to get dressed up in it. And I hate people who don't bother to read what anyone has to say, because a picture may be worth a thousand words (yours? a million), but the text matters too ;)

  15. You look fab in those popping colours (I adore turquoise) so why care about what people think about the dangling between your legs (whether it emasculates or not, or "shorten the D...")?

    1. haha, agreed, actually I don't seem to care but I think lots of guys do which is why they get so provoked seeing me wear them, that's my job! lol

    1. Thanks, I love me a platform lol. Sad how many guys actually do feel inferior when caught wearing platformed shoes... The desire to be taller should not be an embarrassment, so just wear some flatforms! lol

      Delete
  22. LOL! I love that question. Here's what Noel has to say it response: "No. I don't think so."

    But I think it's coz he loves the shoes (and you know it!).

    I'd DIE for your statement necklace! And I have to say, that colour combi you put together is pure genius. It should be the next 'in' colour story for S/S'13.

    Love from HK,

    1. Exactly! In Noel's case he's completely secure about himself, hence to him wearing platformed shoes is just a fashion statement, but lots of guys who are normally taller than you would hate that once you're in the shoes are taller than them because they themselves don't like being the shorter one, it's actually the mid-height ones that are more inferior.. this is like social science here hahahaa
