Black High Heel Peep Toe Pumps

Holy smokes! Those Bebe heels are towering with the 1 1/2 inch triple-stacked platform and the 5 inch stiletto heel. The black leather fabric is interwoven with white strips (that's a detail I am not sure was needed as most of the time, simpler is better). Don't know who's gonna be wearing these but kudos to you if it's in your plans for the next party.

Gold High Heel Sandals

Guess high heel sandals featuring a T-strap and a double ankle strap. Like the rather thin vamp and the absence of a platform (an oddity these days).

Bronze High Heel Sandals

Bronze and gold Guess high heel sandals. These heels are pretty strappy as you've got the usual ankle strap, two straps that cross over the front, cutout vamp and sides. The heel is 4 inch high and looks like it's made of gold (well, maybe it isn't). The best part is that there's no platform.

Red High Heel Peep Toe Pumps

These red suede heels are from Pelle Moda. The interesting feature is the double 1 1/2 inch high platform. The lower platform is stacked wood (just like the 4 3/4 inch stiletto heel) and the upper platform is covered with the red fabric. Obviously, they are red hot!

Brown High Heel Peep Toe Pumps

Two-tone (dark and light brown) peep toe heels from Pelle Moda. The vamp is unusual with its stitched ribbed look. What I like about those heels is the large opening for the toes to peek out (a sandal look in a pip toe pump). The 1 inch platform is recessed and not covered (would have preferred covered and not recessed).

Black High Heel Peep Toe Pumps

Nothing too fancy about these Guess heels since it's the classic peep toe design with a 1/4 inch covered platform (glad to see it's not too thick). What sets it apart is the detail on the vamp: a snakeskin strap with a buckle. Not too crazy about the vamp but it's kinda hard to be original these days.

Pearl High Heel Sandals

All right, those sandals from Chinese Laundry are pretty much perfect. You have spaghetti straps for the vamp and the back of the heel and a single thin strap to go around the ankle. There is no platform whatsoever and the heel is 3 3/4 inches high, which should make those sandals quite comfortable. This is a good example of classy heels.

Black High Heel Sandals

Classic look with these Marciano black high heel sandals. Like the thin strap around the ankle and the delicate leather triangle that covers the back of the heel. The detail on the vamp is actually a flower. I would have liked to see the vamp completely bare, that is, without the large flower detail on top but I understand that beggars can't be choosers in this world.

Black High Heel Sandals

Like the fact that those Guess heels have a very thin platform that's curving up at the front. You have a wide silver and black strap that goes around the ankle and then crosses to form the vamp. All in all, a nice pair of sandals with a different look.

Black High Heel Sandals

Chinese Laundry black heels. I like all the thin straps that get knotted together to form the vamp. I think the design would have been better without the platform that happens to be 3/4 inch thick. Nothing beats a thin ankle strap to enhance the beauty of the female ankle.

Pewter Caged High Heel Sandals

So, that must be what it's like to put your feet in an old time jail cell. I don't think you can find a better caged look than those Guess pewter heels. Yeah, pewter is like silver but without the shine. Anyways, those heels are amazing.

Red/White High Heel Peep Toe Slingbacks

Harajuku Lovers slingback heels. It's basically a high heel deck shoe with rawhide laces that go through stainless steel eyelets and end up being tied right on the vamp. The fabric is shiny red, the covered platform and heel are white. Pretty sure you're gonna be noticed wherever you walk.

Black High Heel Platform Sandals

Heels by LAMB. The vamp is interesting with two straps on the inside and just one strap on the outside (that means cutout). Beside that, kinda like the wide ankle strap with the little buckle to adjust the fit. There's a bunch of little studs all over the place to add some sparkle, I guess. As usual, there's a (double) platform which happens to be one inch thick here.

Clear Silver High Heel Platform Sandals

High heel platform sandals from Betsey Johnson. The platform is not too high at 3/4 inch, which is a good thing. The vamp is a strap crisscross revealing a nice large cutout. The straps are all clear (silvery lined with gold) meaning there's plenty of skin to see. There's a nice flower detail on the the ankle strap.

Black High Heel Peep Toes

Fancy black satin heels by Badgley Mischka. There is a nice buckle/brooch detail on the side but the main attraction is the classic "will never get old" look. What's the deal with mini recessed platform though? It really doesn't add much, I may dare say it's distracting.

Black High Heel Peep Toes

Black heels from Badgley Mischka. A little bit puzzled by the mini platform underneath the front of the foot but ok, I guess. Would have preferred a classic d'Orsay design but it's close enough. The vamp is a strap crisscross with a cutout that enables some skin to be shown beside the front of the toes. All in all, it's a pretty classic pair of heels.

Black High Heel Peep Toe Slingbacks

This pair of heels from Jessica Simpson (I am liking her more and more) has shiny black leather everywhere, from the generously thick platform to the stiletto heel. Classic black seems to work really well for high heels, don't you think? Anyways, bring those to your office Christmas party and I am sure you'll be a hit (just kidding as I don't think you're supposed to dress too provocatively).

Red High Heel Peep Toe Slingbacks

These Jessica Simpson heels are nothing less than spectacular. The wooden platform is an extraordinary 1 1/2 inch high, the stiletto heel is 4 3/4 inch high with a stacked wooden look, the shiny red leather cleverly covers the platform and, best of all, it's a slingback (no buckle though). What goes best with deep red high heels? Deep red polish and that's what we have here on tanned toned legs. The perfect heels for the perfect legs.

Black High Heel Peep Toe Slingbacks

The slingback rules and these Bebe "faux" snakeskin black peep toes prove it. The platform is 1 inch thick, the heel is 4 3/4 inch high and they are both covered with snakeskin. There's nothing fancy like a bow or a flower on the vamp and that's a good thing. This very slick look gets my approval.

Blue High Heel Peep Toes

These Jessica Simpson high heel peep toe pumps are kinda d'Orsay style with one side completely cut to reveal the arch. It's the classic peep toe look with a generous platform all in blue (more exactly, sapphire). Let's just say that it works!

Black Caged Platform High Heel Sandals

These Jessica Simpson high heel sandals are not for everyday life but they sure do make a statement about the lady wearing them. The thick platform, the very high heel and the generous strapping make this lovely sandal simply stunning. Good design choice by Jessica Simpson!

Black High Heel Peep Toe Pumps

D'Orsay style Badgley Mischka black satin high heels with both sides cut, something you don't see too often these days. There's some kind of a fabric flower on the vamp and a recessed platform which is quite thin (and which I find totally unnecessary with a 4 1/2 inch heel). Now, are those sandals or pumps? I am gonna go with pumps until proven otherwise.

Black Platform High Heel Sandals

These lovely high heel sandals are brought to you by Report Signature. You can't help but notice the large leather ruffle on the front T-strap that's lined with what looks like one half of a zipper. The recessed platform (3/4 inch) must bring some comfort to the lady that's wearing those 5 inch heels but it kinda looks awkward (to me, at least). Why not lower the heel instead? Big deal if it's just 4 inches high.
