Funky & awesomely retro.  The Melissa brand shoes, Peace Wedge, is a Vivienne Westwood Collaboration.  It’s recent gift that I received and now has a home in my shoe collection.  Can’t wait to wear them out.  Plastic shoe collection up to 2 now…

Eerie and intriguing. Shoes in plywood niches with sheepskin and animal fiber thread. Sewn to the wall. Really cool. Currently displayed at the MOMA.

My new sandals I received in my swag bag from the opening party of the Melissa shoes store in SOHO. Way to kick off Fashion Week! This is my first pair. Can’t wait to try them once sandal weather comes in.

dye my shoes



Really fun display of Oxfords at the Cole Haan store in SOHO currently. I would like to imagine the dying process to be the same as dying Easter eggs because that sounds more wonderful in my mind.

black iris

Absolutely beautiful and ridiculously awesome.  I’m in love with the iris design of these amazing shoes.  Alexander McQueen is a genius. ($3500 and you can have yourself a pair) too

lo res heels_united nude

Abstraction of a pair of heels.  Lo Res Shoe for United Nude.  Concept by Rem Koolhaas.

The Lo Res Project 3D scans objects and simplifies the number of points used to represent it, thus creating its fragmented nature (the more points, the smoother the object; the less amount of points, the more fragments and triangular).

United Nude was founded by Rem Koolhaas and Galahad Clark.

These are so awesome.  I want a pair.

rainbow sandals

Success!  There is FINALLY a Rainbow Brand sandal shop here in NYC. Stumbled upon it the other day.  I didn’t know where I would get them except in CA or online…lol…too bad they last soo long that you never really have to buy new one’s often.  I’ve had mine for atleast 7 years and they look like they could last 7 more.  Just so durable and comfy.

most curious_tracey neuls & nina saunders

“Most Curious” an installation by Tracey Neuls and Nina Saunders.  Love its whimsical nature.  Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.  I would love wearing those shoes.  They look so fun.

mojito_shoe_julian hakes

Really cool design by London architect, Julian Hakes.  One continuous piece of material–the foot makes the connection between the heel and ball of the shoe.  The shoe is composed of carbon fiber with rubber edge and leather material covers the portion of the shoe that touches the foot bed.  Wonder if you can walk comfortably in them?  Interested to see when they are produced how they look and feel.

bread shoes in box_03

Shoes designed from bread by R&E Praspaliauskas.  The kid sized ones are the cutest-made from little buns.  Don’t think I’ll be eating them after they are worn, but I’ll feed them to the pigeons at least.
