Killer shoes

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

How many of you have heard the expression: would kill for shoes or will work for shoes?
 If you think this is a just a figure of speech you haven't been shopping for shoes on a sale day in Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman or Saks. Trust honeys, its dangerous out there!

 There are a couple of key rules to follow in order to survive: 

Rule #1 
Do not touch the shoe until the other women has completely placed it down on the shelf and walked away at least 2 feet at a steady pace without turning her head (give it time, she might be back)

Rule #2
Do not flatter or  insult with an intention to change once mind from buying or it may result in a mob (girl never shops for shoes on a sale day alone - it's to dangerous)

Do not (and this is the most annoying) make piles and guard them - pick - try - pose -move to the next one, should be simple as that

 If you think job market is competative right now, during crises, you don't have a clue. Looking at this old Harpers Bazaar editorial made me remember The Rules and how much I really enjoy the process of looking for and finding the perfect shoes, and let's face it, we never seem to have enough of them.

I first started to go deaper into thinking about shoe design while I was interning in Showroom Seven in New York. I worked with Chris who was really talented and creative guy. Chris worked in jewelry merchandising and sales which seemed to limit his creative potential and his aspirations. He wanted to go to Europe to study shoe design. I wonder if he ever went...we lost touch after I started to work in Ralph.

Although economy is tough, lets not forget about our deserved splurges and if we need to go down, lets go down in style!

Here are some awesome pieces to ticke your fancy. 


Funny that a pair of really nice shoes make us feel good in our heads - at the extreme opposite end of our bodies.
