There are only two things that most girls need to maintain a happy status quo: Shoes and Chocolate. In all my life, I've never ever come across any female that didn't like shoes. If diamonds are supposed to be a girl's BFF, then shoes must be our long lost cousins and chocolate, the husbands we've always dreamt of.
Whenever I’m having a tough day and all the chocolate’s gone and I need a pick-me-up and I’m done looking at my personal collection of THESE... I come over here and reminisce about this. It was a good day.
If anyone's been wondering what I got for Valentine's this year... (I love presents!! Well I didn’t get them as a gift FOR Valentine’s I just happened to get them ON Valentine’s - there’s a difference, trust me) ... let me just say that it was better than a bunch of flowers.
These are a part of my sit-in collection... coz I'm only ever going to wear them when I'm on my way to some fabulous place where the only walking I'll be doing is from the car to my seat. I'm not a masochist and I'm definitely no Carrie Bradshaw that goes traipsing about the length and breadth of New York in those killer heels (no pun intended) feeling all "cute" while her feet commit suicide.
From the late Alexander McQueen, he may have had issues but the man sure knew style. These look like they were made for Cinderella before the Grimm Brothers decided that she needed to wear glass on her feet... like WTF... who wears shoes made out of glass? Who in the entire history of the world ever wore shoes made of glass? Sounds like something concocted by the French. That's a 911 call just waiting to happen:
McQueen outdid himself for the 2011 collection. I love how flamboyant he was. So ostentatious with that edge. So... so... so... Me! LOL. I imagine wearing these under my wedding dress so that if anyone irritates the shit out of me on my ahem "special day" (*eyes-rolling-to-the-back-of-my-head*) I could break these out and kick them in the shins... guessing that gold metal plate in the front will make it a very pleasant day indeed. Because I tend to be hardcore like that.
Then there are the basiccs... I call them my weekend shoes. Everyone needs a pair so that you can walk around without breaking something. In a cupboard full of moisturizers and butt firming creams... you've got to have soap to clean those grimy pores innit. These are the essentials... those shoes that I'd wear while I'm walking from the Garage into the car... the shoes I'd wear once the night is done and I'm crawling my way home... or just spending the weekend chilling:
And while Doc Martens were never my type, I'm sure there are others out there that will appreciate them:
And there you have it... my choices for 2011. Now to take this shopping list to China Town so that I can get one in every colour for a mere fraction of the price. Coz I'm a cheapskate remember...
