Sunday's pictures and a song: Hell on Heels


It's the second sunny day in a row in Paris! The winter sales are finished, the air feels warm and the stores are starting to unveil their Spring windows. Here are some photos of a couple of the shoes that caught my eye while wandering around town last week.

  1. Okay, I'll just come out and say it, There's a lot of ugly there. Goodness. Clunky, thick, strap-y--all too much. The first shoe though is, no wait, I won't even finish the sentence, I've changed my mind. It's too...mermaid-ish, too Disney mermaid-ish. Maybe I'll never understand women and shoes.

    1. Joseph, I always appreciate your honesty! If you would have been around when the Emperor appeared without his clothes, there's not a doubt in my mind that you would have told him how silly he looked. As for the shoes, there are a few that I would wear and more that I wouldn't ... but then I'm someone who's more into comfort than a fashionista! While I was taking photos of storefront windows for another project, I thought I may as well snap some pics of the shoes that they're featuring for Spring. I'll be curious to see how many of these I see on the streets of Paris next month!

    3. I didn't know the song or band. Very twangy.

    1. I'll have to see if I can find something more to your taste, Nancy. Some Louboutins, perhaps?!

  3. I like the first shoes the most, and I like a few others too. But I no longer wear heels, so I just enjoy them on others. I am curious, too, as to how many you will actually see on the streets.

    1. Wearing high heels (although not as high as those in the pictures) for the filming of "Three Days to Kill" reminded me why I usually wear flats - high heels are painful!

  4. The shoes are almost like museum pieces...not so much to be worn but to be admired as design pieces. Love the song Mary Kay!

    1. The designs are what fascinated me as well, Baron, although I don't quite agree with Marilyn Monroe:
      I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot." I'm happy that you liked the song!

  7. Woo hoo! I'm glad to see that it's not just me who has been reading into these two sunny and mild days. I think we're all ready for spring. I pulled out the herb-scented candles and packed up the Valentine's Day decorations! Le printemps va arriver!!

    Loving the Manolos. ; )

  8. I think the only time you will see women walking in these shoes is going from their limos to the high end designer shop on Ave Montaigne. Not really made for walking the streets.

    Nothing really new in i fashion...We wore these kinds of shoes in the early 70's. They say if a fashion comes round again, you should not wear it!

    Like the song!

    Love Denise
