If Paris Were a Pair of Shoes

My trip to Paris has been nothing short of crazy. Apart from getting robbed in the tube, eating maccarons in a police station with an elderly Australian couple and having two miniature ponies come up for pets backstage of the Moulin Rouge, I bought this breathtaking pair of Celine brogues that I hunted down in Paris: the kind of shoe that causes sleepless nights and butterflies, with a design that is as timeless and refreshing as Paris itself. You can find a similar pair here.

It seems like this season I really hit the jackpot in terms of successfully scouring Berlin and the internet for my favourite footwear during sale season. A whipped cream base coupled with oreo cookie coloured leather. The hydrangea serves its aesthetic purpose, making this another still-life, which is one of my favourite ways of portraying a new acquisition, especially when I can add my weird stuffed animals and miniature toys into the mix.

My love for all things weird and wonderful in the world of fashion runs very deep. When the iconic shape of this Maison Martin Margiela boot was released in mesh with a perspex heel, I almost lost all my senses, regained them a week later though and decided it wasn't the perfect purchase. So I waited. After a few months I spotted these, featuring paper-thin, but durable burgundy leather and a covered perspex heel. The fact that they remind me of socks (or something akin to a second skin) and are semi-opaque only makes me love them even more.

I won't be surprised if these resonate with maybe only 10% of you. In fact, I'm expecting for almost everyone to hate them but let me know either way what you think, I'm curious :D. In order to present them in all their sock-like glory, I will be styling them with an all-black outfit, maybe even toting them around the Journelles party I will be heading to this evening.
