Shoes: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

I've identified three types of shoes that have obsessed me this season and would like to share with you.

First: The Good.  I consider these the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen (it might not be the first time I've said this about a pair of shoes, but I'm sincere about it every time, really!).  I will most likely never own these shoes because they cost $4700. Enjoy your free look.  If you do go off the deep end and need to buy them, you can get them at Neiman Marcus in black!


Next: The Bad.  And by "bad" I mean, I want these shoes BAD.  Alas, I will probably never find these shoes in any store because I am not a uber-power shopper that goes to trunk shows and commits to buying things before they even hit the shelves. I guess these will only be in the shoe closet of my dreams...


Finally: The Ugly.  There is no excuse for such a use of plastic, lucite, PVC, any other toxic man-made material, plus the chandelier crystals that remind me of some table lamps from my childhood. Prada always seems challenge the level of taste every few years.  I'm not even going to show you the Fendi shoes that were taken straight out of a stripper's closet.
I'm sure that in a few months time, I'll have done a complete 180 on my views of these shoes. Hopefully this happens before I spend money on any of them!

  1. Not to mention velcro...that is what is holding together the strap of the chandelier shoe, isn't it? Gross!
