Chanel’s Version of the Platform

Posted in Shoes, Structure & Form by Michelle on January 4, 2011

Is this for real? WordPress says this is my 100th post? I must post a lot…

I love Chanel’s take on the platform for their Spring 2011 line. I especially love the knotted rib-caged platforms (below, at left) in yellow, black, and grey. I want! I want!!! The cutout at the heel totally revamps the old platform a la Skater Girl. Vintage inspired, no?

And my favorite….. I keep trying these shoes on, mentally.

McQueen’s Patchwork Calamity Sneakers

Posted in Shoes by Michelle on February 19, 2010

I’m not a sneaker person. The only pairs I have are…. black Rebook soccer sneakers that hurt, classic Pumas that are falling apart, Nike Shox that I “work out” in (i.e. walking to the supermarket), unworn tweed herringbone Converse’s that are too big, classic white Keds-like flats I bought from Target, and slip on Vans that are somewhere in Jersey.

Those Vans revolutionized my feelings for sneakers. I need to replace them! Possibly? With these??

At £315.00, probably not.
