Have you ever wondered, "How can I make my legs appear much skinnier and longer than they actually are?" If so, the answer is pictured above. HCG has long lusted for a pair of Brian Atwood's signature platform pumps. As we are an ardent devotee of the platform heel, we've found that our little heartbeat quickens when we spot a hidden platform. Look taller with increased comfort while fooling people into thinking you're wearing a regular pump? Sign.us.up.
The height and color of these Atwood Maniac pumps offer exactly the kind of combination we could use in our life. The 5-inch heel and 1 1/2 inch platform equates to only a 3 1/2 heel (novice-level!) and the neutral color would make our legs go on for days. Plus, at $575, the Maniacs are priced $200 cheaper than these very similar platform Louboutins. We might as well have found them in the clearance section at DSW marked with a green sticker.
Our girl VB wears these Maniac pumps constantly and, as always, she looks like sheer perfection in each ensemble: HCG wants to wear them constantly, too.
