Jessica Simpson Dany platforms: ankie, don’t fail me now.

UPDATE: So here I am wearing them… how’d I do?

I think I’m losing my g.d. mind. Did I really just buy these freakshows?

[Jessica Simpson Dany Platforms in Tan.]

I had to. I’ve been having night sweats dreaming about this insane pair of Steve Maddens I had in high school that were the same heel and platform height, sky high, so 70s, but with braided leather. I have no idea what happened to them, but these filled the void.

And, I can be honest with you guys… Rumi made me do it. And I have a hunch her post featuring her black pair (cannot find anywhere, btw) has caused these to sell out all over the Web. I think she purposely revealed them a day at a time over the course of the weekend to tantalize us, sending everyone into a fit with the full-on shot of them today. [See the foreplay postsย here and here.]

If you really want to go Barbarella, please get these, I beg you, and send me photos of you in them. I just don’t have the nerve to match the desire:

    I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t slightly curious to see how your first stroll in these puppies turns out…if it were me I can guarantee I’d look like a baby giraffe taking it’s first steps! However, I’m sure you’ll pull them off much more elegantly, can’t wait to see how you style them!!

    Much love,

    AAAAAAAAAAA!!! i got the same ones in tan too…just last week! i can’t remember whose blog i first saw them, but then i saw it on fashiontoast after i got mine. we’re supposed to get snow this week, so i won’t be rocking them any time soon, even with socks :( we should coordinate a “twin day” & post us wearing the same shoes…hahaha!

      You name the day and we’re on! :) So funny. You were way on top of this! Good luck with the snow, I am no stranger. Definitely limits the shoe options…

    They’re oh so high!
    I’m definitely impressed with you walking with heels in the snow…
    I’ve taken my fair share of embarrassing falls here in Alaska pairing heels with the snow :)

    Definitely post them! They are probably a lot more comfortable than they look. What happened to the Pella Moda’s? I think you should get them in black.

      Do it! They are only 70% terrifying to walk in, although 100% hot.

  11. March 1, 2010 at 12:57 pm #

    i;ve been trying to look for these for the past week on the web,,no luck at this point i will take ANY color! maybe its time to call up the stores….

      maybe they’ll just churn out another round. I cannot believe how quickly they sold out.

    Uhhh, you did buy these frankensteiny 70’s delight, as did I, and you look GREAT in them. I walked in the mall for 2 hours, got tons of compliments, and my feet were only sore where the leather part is over the toes.
    The outfit with the tan shoes is so cute, I plan to copy!

      :) Right on! Glad to hear you aren’t crippled post that 2-hour excursion. You are giving me hope for spring, when I plan on wearing them into the ground! Go Franky. Go Franky. It’s ya birfday.

    DIE for these shoes. new to your blog (and mine, really ๐Ÿ˜‰ but loving it. i just posted on ‘the look for less’ versions of the Chanel clogs, but i’m afraid i may need to purchase these first! xxSAS

    I have these and every single time I wear them, I twist my ankle at least 3 times. Luckily it hasn’t sprained or worse…yet. Found them on endless and got a great deal using bing cashback.

  16. April 8, 2010 at 3:10 pm #

    OMG. Love these shoes. I’ve been dying to get a pair for the past month. Not to my suprise size 5 is out… what I would do do have bigger feet- the story of my life. They are so gorgeous on you- I want more more more now. :-p

      NO! Don’t wish away your tiny feet! You can get all the best finds on ebay! EVERYONE is an 8… that’s why Gucci studded Babouska flats in my size are $800. But you can get all the great ones for cheap cheap cheap :)

  17. May 16, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    ha, i was just googling “jessica simpson dany” and your post came up. i’m lusting after these bitches lately, and i can’t tell if it’s crazy. is it crazy?? should i?? what do you think of yours? they look hot btw, but other than that, thoughts? this is of course assuming i can find them. nothing like hopping on the bandwagon two months too late. i blame rumi for that too :)

    So I guess I am a little behind the times, but I just came across these stilts in this month’s Lucky Mag with J.S. on the cover:) Fell in love and promptly googled when I got home. Just ordered the black, hope I love them and don’t break anything wearing them!!!

      good luck! I don’t wear them nearly as much as I should; people tend to gawk. Let’s just hope it’s in a good way! Enjoy :)

    I’ve been debating on whether or not to get these shoes. They are finally in stock on the Jessica Simpson website!! They are so cute, but I’m afraid they are too high and maybe uncomfortable….in your honest opinion are they worth it?

    hiii i saw them recently in stock at Macys, Zappos and Shoebuy. I think i almost had heart failure. I’ve been searching for these shoes forever and just bought the tan ones..thinking of getting black too :)
    Btw love the way you styled them!

    Which color for a more dressed up outfit that won’t match black? I want the pewter but am afraid that I won’t have much to wear with it after the fact. Am leaning toward the grey snakeskin.. Thoughts? Suggestions?

  26. March 4, 2011 at 9:53 am #

    I agree with you. These shoes are mesmerizing. I was practically in tears when I discovered these, and they were sold out in all the good colors.

  27. March 6, 2011 at 4:32 pm #

  28. April 2, 2011 at 8:53 pm #

    great style! how was walking in them?? I love HIGH heels(particularly Jeffrey Campbells) but always seem to fall down in them (embarrassing!) i’ve been drooling over these dany platforms for a while now and i think i might get them! but not if they are definitely too difficult to walk in…

      they are pretty doable, at least compared to the new Joie boots I got—eek!

  29. May 9, 2011 at 4:56 pm #

    Lovin’ the style of these shoes I especially like the black pair with the stockings.

  30. September 28, 2011 at 12:46 pm #
