Winter can be a little bland at times. All that slushy grey snow, dark skies and neutral-colored clothing can get a little boring after a while. Sometimes you need a little boost of excitement to your style and this Fashionista has the perfect cure. This week’s Fashionista is rocking the coolest, most sparkly and most amazing shoes I have seen in a while. She stood out on the street full of winter greys with her sparkling, lace-up, chunky, platform heels that are to die for!

Platforms seem to be making a huge comeback recently with the returning ‘70s trends. This is great news, especially for some of us shorter Fashionistas! They look great with basically any outfit and they come in so many diverse styles from edgy to girly, low platforms to high platforms and everything in between. There is something for everybody!

This Fashionista picked some ultra-glam sparkle platforms and paired them with some dark wash skinny jeans, a cozy wool jacket and an awesome infinity loop scarf. The whole look is very winter chic. She keeps the perfect balance of comfort and style with her comfy clothes and killer heels!

How To: Do you want to try out some daring platforms? Some great places to find them are your local vintage and thrift stores! This Fashionista scored her awesome shoes at a local vintage store in Toronto, Kind Exchange, for only $25! If you are having trouble scouting some out in your local shops, Jeffrey Campbell has some great styles to pick from and you can even order online!
