i want: Mary Boots by Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony

Chloe Sevigny and Opening Ceremony have teamed up again for the spring summer 2011 season. The boots are super, super tall for 2011. I’m loving it. Keep the platforms coming.

Kenzo Spring Summer 2011 Shoes

Kenzo Spring Summer 2011 Shoes
These are crazy geta inspired shoes from Kenzo this season.   My first reaction was pretty but I would never wear them but that has changed with time.  I also have a lot of ridiculous platforms why am I judging these.  I could see myself wearing the top two pairs.  I love the prints.

Kenzo Spring Summer 2011 Shoes

Geta (下駄) are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resemble both clogs and flip-flops. They are a kind of sandal with an elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep the foot well above the ground. They are worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata, but (in Japan) also with Western clothing during the summer months. Sometimes geta are worn in rain or snow to keep the feet dry, due to their extra height and impermeability compared to other shoes footwear such as zōri. (source: wikipedia.com)

I found a great link that talks about the different types of geta found in Japan. Traditional Japanese Footwear at wafuku.co.uk has lots of photos and descriptions.

i want: Paloma Satin Platform Pumps by Charlotte Olympia

Paloma Satin Platform Pumps by Charlotte Olympia

There are times when I stare at my shoe collection looking for a simple heel. This always happens when I’m looking for something dressy or black tie. I like these Paloma Satin Platform Pumps by Charlotte Olympia ones because they have a platform and are pretty neutral but the little detail on the heel makes them different.

Charlotte Olympia is available at The Room by The Hudson’s Bay.

i want: Giuseppe Zanotti Platform Wedges

These Giuseppe Zanotti platform wedges are crazy high. They have a 6-inch heel and 2-inch platform. I’m loving anything pony these days and my stance on animal print is slowly crumbling.  I really like it when it’s used for accessories.

I love platforms and I have a few high ones in my closet. I wonder what these are like to walk in. Any Giuseppe wearers out there care to comment?

I love these platform sandals from Sergio Rossi. The colour combos are spot on and they are unusual, very angular. I would wear these with a mini dress or skirt, they are perfect for showing off leg!

Sphere Heel Sandals, I swoon at the ridiculousness of this shoe. I don’t think I’d ever wear something like this, but I do appreciate it.
