|...love these shoes...|
I was just perusing net-a-porter (it's just no good what one morning coffee with a fashionista does for you!) and saw these Jimmy Choos (below). I have thought about them all weekend. On many levels. Is it just wrong that a pair of shoes cost over 550 notes? What can they be made of that justifies that price? It's the design, the name, the delicacy. It must be something. I am in love with them. But they can not be mine. This love will remain unrequited...but they would be so perfect with a dress I have...
Meanwhile boots...the quest goes on and I shall doubtless search every online nook and cranny for the perfect pair of winter boots. This happens every year; I go through this process and can never quite find the perfect pair. I have them in my mind...but my exacting standards are never completely met. Maybe I need to go into boot production?
My boot and shoe yearnings stem from this woman:
Giovanna Battaglia - I have expressed my awe of her before. OK so she is the Fashion Director of Italian Vogue, OK so she has this amazing put-together but not too matchy look and OK yes, those chameleon features. I have never seen a bad outfit on her. I love her look. But must she keep on tempting me? Her footwear...utterly evocative of that i-want-it-now feeling.
Going shopping... ;-)
