Shoe candy: Givenchy Victoria Biker Glitter Sandals

Despite its slightly chunky look due to the shape of the heel and the strap, I don’t hate Givenchy Victoria sandal:

It is different, cool and with a slight air of “Christmas decoration” around it  – all of it works for me.

However, I might feel a slightest bit of hate at the end of a long evening towards the girl wearing these while limping pass her in shoes most probably a lot less comfy than these seem to be.

 

Ah come on II: Maison Martin Margiela Painted PVC Booties

Sorry people, I know there has been a tad of whining in this blog but the wonderful world of shoes seems very confusing lately.

Maison Martin Margiela Painted PVC Booties

Without even going into the specific details of this, such as $900 price tag or the totally unflattering model or why they just did not go to the shop for another can of black instead of releasing it on the market (they surely must have a trainee or fifteen responsible for crucial tasks like that), the two biggest questions in my head are: How could anybody at any point of time think that this is a good idea? And why?

Shoe math or come on: Kanye West By Giuseppe Zanotti “Kanye All Over Beads Sandals”

I don’t even longer know, maybe I AM an old prune. Maybe I am not really gettin’ the whole “it” of shoe fashion, maybe I will soon get the same shocked look from my friends as my mom got from me suggesting that I borrow her 3cm heeled (very middle-aged  looking) pumps for a school disco eternities ago (yes, I had a horizontally challenged feet area already then). Maybe I am losing a sense of (at least in my opinion) good taste.

But, for the in-my-book considerable sum of €4 505, in the choice between this:

Kanye All Over Beads Sandals

OR THIS:

Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-embellished satin pumps

PLUS (nope, not another “or”, plus it is) THIS:

Christian Louboutin Asteroid 140 suede and patent-leather pumps

And what the hell, for the additional €35,  these AS WELL, together with the two abovementioned pairs:

Christian Louboutin Maggie Glitter and Snakeskin Platform Pumps

I know what option I would go for, after giving a long giggle about the most expensive beads in the history of man.

But some good shall come from the first creation as well. If Kanye’s quote   “I’m trying to right my wrongs/ But it’s funny the same wrongs help me write this song,” is true, I think we might have a new album coming out soon. The guy can sing,  we all have to give him that.

Shoe candy: Karen Millen Colourful Raffia Platform Sandal

Let’s start (a tad late) this week with something new and blue:

Karen Millen Colourful Raffia Platform Sandal

I am not totally sure where the “colourful” came from but I am definitely sold on the beige and blue as well as the pattern. While it probably takes a bit of tan and a drop of red nail polish in order for your feet not to disappear, I definitely find these sandals cute enough to put in an effort at the both.

Shoe “no freakin’ idea how to call this one”: Jeffrey Campbell Lita All Over Spike

Bloody hell.

Jeffrey Campbell Lita All Over Spike

Somewhere in another, dark and twisted universe, Pinhead just got a bit dizzy from a serious kick of shoe cravings straight to his head.

 

PS: Knowing the “inspiration” Litas provide and which has been featured in my blog frequently  – Similar product soon in the stores around you! (With a perky, Colgate-commercial voice)

A lot of stores. (Slightly more tired voice, emphasising “a lot”)

 

 

Shoe poetry: Jimmy Choo Hazel Haircalf Platform Wedges

Oh Jimmy Chooo

I love youuuu

But this can’t doooo

My eyes got a flue

By seeing this shoe

That makes me blue

So off I go for a cookie or two

 

Shoe candy-ish: Yves Saint Laurent “Shield” Loafer Pump

I know that these shoes will be featured on at least a couple of fashion blogs. I know that the posts will have an exclamation point or two because of their “coolness” “cravings” they ’cause or whatever. And honestly, I do find them somehow in an unexplainable way cute and cool at the same time and I do find them kind off possible on somebody else’s feet. I mean you just need to take a look at your shoes to see how your lipstick is holding up a couple of hours into the night:

But right now, the only thing I can think about (without putting any kind of value or opinion in it yada yada and fully aware of totally politically incorrect stereotyping (did I cover it all?)) is “every gay musketeer’s wet dream of all footwear”.

If you disagree, Shield loafer pumps can be found at Nordstrom.

Shoe freakin’ fab: Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-embellished Satin Pumps

Unlike this, I would not mind putting my greedy, lusting, shoe-loving fingers on this:

Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-embellished Satin Pumps

Let’s take a look from the other perspective:

Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-embellished Satin Pumps

Holy crap of all magpies. This is one detailed hand back of a shoe. And let’s finish with a picture of the bow, just to see if the perfection remains from a real close-up:

Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-embellished Satin Pumps

Well, yes it does. Fascinated by all the perfect shiny bling, with the eyes of a child on Christmas morning while rushing down the stairs, I start wiping of my chocolate stained fingers to at least touch the screen version of the ultimate shoe perfection.

And the illusion snaps together with the price tag making it into my tunnel vision – £2 646.

Fingers gliding automatically into the cookie box again.

Really people? For something, no matter how beautiful it is and it really really is in this case,that will still be in touch with ground and dirt* on daily basis? What is it made from? Unicorn sprinkled magic dust sewn on by hands of thousands little virgin elves? Seriously, my feet are barely worth that much to me.

* Insert optional adult joke about how these shoes are not for walking but for more pleasurable activities, in the air. And in case you are serious with that, planning to get these shoes out of that only purpose, respect to you, your feet and your vagina.

Possible temporary shoe confusion: Aperlai 140mm Suede and Leather Elasticated Sandal

This really should not be my cup of tea. It is a chunky-ish slingback with “elasticated, PVC inserted straps” and a 140mm “marble effect heel” or to summarize it – a lot.

But I seem to be in a tea-flavor changing mood today ’cause I can really see this sandal work together with a white Greek-style short dress and a piece of heavy jewelry, like a pair of large turquoise earrings.

Shoe shiny fab: Karen Millen Crystal Peep toe pumps

Let’s give a wake-up slap to our inner magpies in the middle of the usual “oh why is it Monday already” weekly life crisis with something shiny and pretty – Karen Millen Crystal Peep toe pumps:

Classic model, curved edge, 11cm heel and a lot of bling – this is THE shoe you put on when there is some serious “modern Cinderella” time. Thanks to the 3cm hidden platform, there is also a good chance that you will be able to run away at the end of the evening, without leaving one of these babies behind. That would be a real pity considering the price tag of almost £300. It is both easier and cheaper just to hook up with the prince charming next day on Facebook.*
