So I feel like there is this running propaganda about women not being able to control themselves around beautiful shoes. Although I have been known to have emotional responses to beautiful clothing in the past, I feel like the cult of designer shoes is a slightly over-hyped styling tool. The truth is when your closet feels repetitive and you are just about ready to throw everything out a new pair of shoes (or a purse) can make all the difference. Heels can dress up an otherwise “frumpy” outfit and it’s easy to look like a million bucks when you are wearing expensive shoes even if the rest of your outfit came from some place generic and you have already worn it a hundred times before. Let’s face it it’s a lot easier to invest in a pair of shoes than to buy a whole new inspiring wardrobe.
I wanted to preface this post with my opinion on shoe culture because obviously it features a lot of pictures of one pair of shoes. I definitely had some feelings about these shoes. Dries Van Noten clothing and accessories are illusive and so finding a pair of his textile inspired heels at our Studio City store/sale this weekend made me kind of giddy. Fortunately for you these shoes will soon be available on our ebay. In the mean time another pair of Dries heels just went up (they are also not in my size . . .)!
To pair with:
Don’t forget! Next week is our biggest “Best of the Best” at our location on Veteran and Santa Monica.
