An ugly shoe and its better looking, more expensive cousin.

29 01 2009

 CUTIEWhen I first saw this shoe on Bakersshoes.com for $79 and change, I thought “what the hell is this? who in the world would wear these?” They’re now on sale for $29 and I still feel exactly the same. In my opinion it looks like a unfinished witch boot.

Then I saw this next shoe and realized the difference a little bit of quality can make. Worn here by La La , the Givenchy lace front wedge boots dont look half bad…

Prices for the boot range from $695 to $795 depending on where you purchase and even though this shoe is definately NOT one of my favorites, I wouldn’t call it “ugly”. If I had to judge based off that first shoe, I wouldnt have even given this style a chance.

29 01 2009

Yves Saint Laurent has designed a way to keep your feet from flying away!  Unbelievably priced at $1590, I know there’s someone out there who cant wait to get their hands on these. I guess once you have a name set for yourself you can pretty much create whatever the hell you want and people will love it. Lets wait and see what celebrities come out the woodworks wearing these with matching bird cage purse this spring.

I hate her dress in this picture but her shoes seem to make the whole darn outfit look fantastic. I guess thats all you need is a great pair of shoes. If I saw Rihanna on the street wearing these pumps, I’d beat her up and steal them….spl74776_015.jpg

Now Im not sure if the pumps she’s wearing in the picture are the same make as the bootie below but it damn well looks pretty close.
