More Interesting Shoes from Fashion Week

I always like to see something different, even if it is weird, because regardless of whether I like it or not it is always a great discussion piece! So here are some more intriguing shoes that are walking the runway:

20090305_ninariccishoes_560x375

These crazy numbers are from Nina Ricci’s new line, and say what you will, but I would probably give them a shot. If I could afford them. Buuuut anyway…

These babies make you eleven inches taller. And that little heel on the last two shoes–yeah it doesn’t even touch the floor! But fortunately for those of you who can afford these, the toe platform is heavily weighted to keep you from flying backward. But I would recommend practicing first….you never know….

Moving on…

For those of you who feel a little horsey, I present to you A.F. Vandevorst’s pony-inspired footwear.

I gotta admit…not a big fan…

Here’s a sample from Anne Valerie Hash’s new line which is all about woven materials.

Vogue Extreme Beauty Photo Exhibition

On display at Milan’s Palazzo della Ragione from March 4th through May 10th is a new photography exhibition showing many different interpretations of beauty through a series of images seen in American Vogue through the years.

This exhibition is meant to investigate the different ideas of beauty and the roles that it plays in our culture.

It is called “Extreme Beauty in Vogue,” and is definitely worth a look.

Here is a link to see a few of the images from this exhibition:

Worst Idea for a Shoe Ever…

I wish this was a joke…I really do. But sadly this shoe is for real, and what’s worse–it’s selling for about 1000 euros.

So now I present to you for your viewing pleasure, or not, Rick Owen’s ‘Hidden Sandal’

rick-owens-hidden-shoe

This is basically what it looks like

rick-owens-hidden-spring-2009-shoe-revealed

This is what you’ll never see

00090m

So I’ve been trying to find some really good reasons why women should buy this shoe, and I’ve come up with a couple:

  • You’re going to be a Clydesdale this year for Halloween
  • Your floors are really dusty and you’re too lazy to sweep

Please feel free to share your reasons for wanting to buy this shoe!!

030209_21_l

I LOVE these and plan to buy them soon. The blue is nice and vibrant, and the beading really gives it that extra something special.

020909_08_l

Leslie Hall Flats in Slate, $34.99

This flat is nice because of all the detailing on the vamp which makes it very glam!

022609_08_l

White Angle Slingbacks, $29.99

The cutouts on this shoe are great, and definitely help to break up the stark white color.

030209_10_l

Star Bright Wedges, $34.99

A very cute wedge. Who can live without that?

030209_18_l

Meringue Peep Toe in Lemon, $37.99

These have a really nice pop of yellow which gives it a very modern edge.

030209_25_l

Magna Cum Laude Oxfords, $39.99

A great oxford with some modern flare.

Shoe for Thought

I just realized I haven’t done one of these in quite awhile, and when I cam across this shoe I knew I had to post it immediately as a shoe for thought.

Take a look!

brass_knuckle_shoe

Patricia Field, Brass Knuckle Heel, $74.00

Yeah, the heel is a brass knuckle. How awesome is that!?!? It completely takes the stiffness out of the Oxford pump and adds all kinds of edge!
