Jealous party, table for one.

via jak&jill.com again.

What is it with this new "heels and details" thing?  With the intricacies of Prada ss08 and those awesome Ungaro shoes and that Miu Miu shoe I saw in the window of Brown's today.  No one ever stared at the ground as much as I did until now.

Maybe it's a sign of the times.  Like.....we're picking one element of clothing, one garment category (wow, I cannot form a thought well), to really exaggerate, really put an emphasis on so that we can either be a) really lazy or b) really frugal with the rest of it.  'Cause you don't need a lot after you have those shoes.  
And who doesn't like shoes?  Who doesn't spend on shoes?  Who doesn't crumble when they see a pair of shoes in a store window?  Who hasn't walked into at least one person/pole/mailbox/obstacle in the street while staring at a pair of shoes?

So why not make the one piece that we spend all of our limited fortunes on the one piece that seems to make everyone feel good about themselves?

come to think of it, why do shoes make us feel good/better?

those shoes are absolutely ridiculous in the best way possible. i'm all for the further development of shoe detail, as long as they remain somewhat wearable.. or not. i really wouldn't mind a shoe exhibit at some art museum..

also, you've been tagged!
