Rainbow Brite's stolen footwear

How many Rainbow Brites were killed in the making of these shoes? Hopefully all of them. Stupid cartoon. Talk about creativity, can't fault the designer there. I suspect LSD was involved...''and that's where the Leprechaun told me to light fires!'' Keep on inhaling all that paint kids you just might be allowed to design shoes like this. Pfft! 5 years olds and their crayons...

It's not easy being green...

I actually thought these were for women. I did a double take only to notice the width. But I say if you're a woman and have big feet (because obviously you're a glorious Amazonian woman and are 7ft tall) I think you need these. If you are a dude and love colour these loafers got your back. The detailing is pretty, the colours are fun and it takes no time to do your laces up. Eh? Eh? I can't imagine any man I know wear these but I think it's a pretty design. Remember it's not easy being green.

The things German tourists wear

Don't know about this one Prada. You kind of designed for old German tourists who for fun like hiking in the Australian desert and enjoy telling jokes like; How many electricians does it take to change a light bulb? One. This is no laughing matter, humour is very serious. Boing!! 
Once you take a look at the whole collection it makes sense. As individual pieces 'mii no capish'.

Don't worry I still love you.

Saturday Night Spirit Animal Pumps

Oh hello muchachas did I just find my Saturday night spirit animal pumps? Hells to the yeah! Eat your heart out Carmen Miranda, I just found out what your heaven looks like. It looks like these shoes hon-ney! (Snap your finger).

Quick, someone call up Gina Liano I found her next serious acquisition. You need these in your sparkle wardrobe Gina, do it! Doooo it! 

You know what I am doing right now? I am doing a little chair dance, swaying my head to and fro because these pumps have affected me on a cellular level. To celebrate let's all shake our maracas to Brazil (and when I say maracas I mean boobs, if you're a man shake your moobs).

Not off-FENDI-ded

Sure it's plastic but it's cool. Plus I am sure it's the really really expensive plastic.  High quality plastic that is perfumed or something. By now you are thinking but in the summer time I sweat. Right? Well let me tell you the people who can afford these pay someone else to sweat for them. Geez! Or at least the plastic surgeon has zapped their sudoriparous glands therefore void of any human body malfunctions. Anyhooooo I like these designs but i'll take mine in leather thanks.

Elastic Heart

We've had some lovely weather here in Italy the last couple of days so of course i've been eagerly doing my job that is, researching all the summer footwear in the world. What did I ever do without the internet? (Read a book?). I came across Gucci smoochie here and though elastic is a pretty cool invention (I know i've never gone through xmas lunch without stretchy pants) I can't just fathom paying 600 buckaroos for a pair of thongs (flip-flops) held together by elastic. Yeah I get it, it's Gucci and I am sure they use the best elastic around but surely a better solution could have been found, no? I admit, I too have designed shoes with elastic but without the price tag of a million dollars. Oh, and   also I covered the elastic in leather, trying to hide the fact that I had used elastic in the first place. I ain't dissing elastic just to reiterate.

Loriblu Heels

Does anyone remember a little store that popped up on Rundle Street in Adelaide in the mid 90s that I thought as a young teen was a 'candy' store (LOLLIES DAMN IT! They are called lollies) then I realised as my folks hushed me away that in fact it wasn't selling sweets but condoms, flavoured condoms, chocolate panties (so dirty) and genitalia gummies. These shoes, they remind me of that very store. And ice-cream, it also reminds me of ice-cream. Now I want ice-cream.

Sergio Rossi's Filagree sandal. It's pretty luxurious and I'm a sucker for gold. Who doesn't want to be dripping in it? Says the Lioness. These guys are a little Roman-esque a little Grecian princess but a whole lot of IN YOUR FACE AND SHOW ME THE MONEY. That's soooooo money.

Dogs breakie. You're Welcome.

I felt like I had nothing else to say about anything for a while. Had I said all that there was to say? Had my instinctive verbal diarrhea finally stopped?  Had I finally learnt to keep my big fat mouth shut? No. The answer is no. You know why? I'll tell you why, I saw these hideous monsters. That is of course if you dare to look at the abomination that I present before you. I had seen these a couple of days ago and I thought, really? Are you fucking serious? Really? It looks like a dog vomited his breakfast lapped it up and spewed again.

I was happy to see an old work buddy on the FB had made a comment. A disapproving comment. So happy my violent displeasure for these (bah! Do I dare to call these sneakers?) had not be in vain. There is a group forming, a posse of people who think like I do. We will not be told what to like. Just because you design geometric space age like footwear, add a splash of colour, texture and add a plastic thing-a-ma-gig at the back does not make it cool. Does not make it pleasurable to the eye. I don't want these in my cupboard. HIDEOUS!

Dramatic? Me? Never!

70s Tourist

My god, how long has it been? Almost an eternity. So much has gone on. So, in my usual slack way I failed to keep up with the gentle current. Now I lament the hole in November and December etc etc. I shall feed the blog once more with my irrational thoughts.  Hmmmm, shall we begin?

I'm going to start with the Sicilian boys. D&G baby, check out there window display. It's cool. I feel like a tourist. You see, those giant pencils, tea towels and 'look at all the things I saw in Sicily' plates do come in handy. Window display handy. It's pretty cool, you get to be transported back to the 70s when your aunty thought it a good idea to buy you a mini novelty Sicilian horse/donkey and carriage dust collector. Just to prove that she went there, on holiday. I hoped the donkey would shit out cigarettes, it just collected dust. Better to leave the gift on the mantle piece right next to the shelled photo frame she bought the last time she went to the Adriatic coast. Not to worry though, now D&G also design clothes for your now 76 your old aunty. Wow! They could have put something a little more spritely out front, no?

70s Mina, the best kind of Mina.
