There are so many things wrong with these shoes I don't know where to begin...

LottieP said...

you won't be fighting me for them then. Phew! I think they're amazing; I'd wear them.

J says he has a theory that as you get older, you start liking brighter things...

Mummy said...

J is wrong. As you get older you start liking younger things :-)

I'm with Mummy. the proportions are funny. and I write as the biggest, trashiest magpie going in the clothing stakes.

sample conversation with sales woman in hobbs:


her: I don't know how you feel about wearing animal print...
me: the more the merrier! leopard with tiger stripes!! bring it on etc etc

Leopard with tiger stripes...I feel sick just thinking about it.

Re. these shoes, I'm vexed by the question of what you'd wear them with. In summer with bare tanned legs and a white dress? I've no idea. I love the shape; I'm just not so sure about the colour.

Mummy said...

Like Claire, I can just hear my mothers voice, uttered so many times as I was about to buy something stupid "But darling, what would you wear them with?". It haunts me every time I about to hand over my credit card in a shop.

I am sorry LottieP, I keep looking at the picture and however hard I look they are still hideous. Have you updated you glasses prescription lately - normally you are so spot on about these things.

LottieP said...

A simple black lycra dress would do the trick. I'm not wrong about this and I won't retract...

Claire said...

Well, are you going to buy them?

I think they might be "concept" shoes, a bit like a concept car - made to dream about rather than drive. I've never seen them in real life.

A prize to anyone who finds them for me! Size 39.

(And they are likely to be, even if real, astonishingly expensive.)

Claire said...

Size 39. That's my size too ;-)
