okay, before you fall in love, don’t fall far….they’re by pierre hardy, and they’re $1400, so this is a look-but-don’t-touch post. but i still had to share…i mean, look at them!
now, i have absolutely nowhere to wear these – after all, they take over-the-top to a whole new level. but oh, i wish i did so that i could properly covet them. as of now, they’re just making me covet the shoe and the life i’d have to have to own them (hmm, can you ever really own a shoe that lovely, or are you just borrowing it from the world? what, too far?).
so, here’s what i’m wondering: what amazing fantasy event would you want to attend in order to wear these amazing shoes? for me, i’m thinking maybe the annual costume institute gala at the met. it’s hosted by anna wintour, and i just know she’d stop me and demand that i remove my shoes and give them to her immediately.
what about you?
ahem. readers, i think you all know that i love pink as much as…well, probably even a bit more than the next girl. and were this bag hot pink leather…well, it wouldn’t be my style, but i might at least understand it. but this bag, by pierre hardy, is neoprene. as in, the stuff they make wetsuits from. i know there’s a trend heading toward lightweight bags, as we all spent 2007 and 2008 causing all sorts of chiropractic dramas with our 40-lb marc jacobs bags. i can handle nylon or canvas, as long as it’s priced appropriately. and i might not even be averse if it were black neoprene, and executed more subtly. but i’m having a pretty serious aversion to the hot pink rendition.
oh yeah, and did i mention it’s $1,500??? seriously. for a bag made out of a wetsuit. honestly, tell me…are you actually buying $1,500 hot pink neoprene handbags during a recession?
sigh. please, in the name of fashion, take this opportunity to reject the fug by going out and treating yourself to a really lovely handbag on sale (also some lovely options here). you could do so much better.
