Wish List: Brian Atwood Maniac Pumps

maniacHave 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: poshHCG wants to wear them constantly, too.
