Wherein Style Spy Overshares a Bit

The noise I made when I saw these shoes for the first time was positively pornographic. I know this because I was unfortunately in public when I discovered them and my, er... vocalization elicited comment from a few of my neighbors.












Yeah. The shoes. I loves 'em a leeeeeetle too much.

Very cute! I wonder if the feathers would become annoying after a while, though?

I'll have what she's having.

Purty!

Marsi said...

But they're so gorgeous. How could you not?

Elaine said...

Would it be strange to buy them and leave them out on my dresser? They're lovely but I have to no place to wear them so I thought this might be a reasonable compromise.

Mardel said...

Very nice! Shoes definitely destined to incite shoe lust.

Gorgeous heels. This is why I try to see all the shoes I can possibly find in the privacy of my four walls first - or else I'd be making... provocative noises all the time.

Definitely worthy of lust.

Would the feathers tickle your calf while walking? Your thigh while sitting?

Mrowr!

Elaine, I don't think that's unreasonable. I've got a pair of tiger-stripe paillette Manolos that I keep on my mantel. I've only worn them once, and they're happy as lambs (well, tiger cubs) living above my fireplace between a picture of my grandfather and a 1862 Book of Common Prayer.

"Shoe porn" strikes again!

You're a wild one! :)

They are sexy and look look a peacock tail!

I wondered about the feathers tickling, too, but I think I'd be willing to run the experiment to see. and compared to the torture some shoes have put my feet through, tickling would be pretty mild.

Elaine, I don't have any shoes that are permanent art like Plummie does, but I'm certainly not above leaving out a pair every now & then to look at. It raises the spirits!

That's so funny, I recently went to Christian Louboutin to see what all the fuss was about - quite a heady experience, I didn't see any price tags and didn't WANT to know - but they had similar shoes with like a hothouse of fake feather & silk flowers on them.

That was a few weeks ago & I've been meaning to do something in photoshop ever since. Actually, I've considered adding fake flowers to my own shoes.. seriously. Then I was thinking of using fresh ones from the garden, but I'm going to start with virtual shoes. When I do, you'll be the first to know.
