Carlos By Carlos Santana
Giuseppe Zanotti Design
Annette Shoes Marie Antoinette
Bongo Shoes (unknown creator)
In all my boredom this evening I went blogging for creative inspiration. What did I discover???? SHOES! I went surfing for cute high heel shoes and searched over 3,500 pairs. What did I learn?
1. Not many pairs caught my eye
2. I love looking at shoes but know I cannot wear them (high heels that is)
3. The funkier the shoes are, the better!
The multi-colored shoes by Carlos: the first thing I thought of was Arizona. I pictured a well-to-do lady wearing a cool blue blouse with a bolero type jacket matching the shoes, and I'm not sure is she is wearing a skirt or pants (you wouldn't want to hide these shoes with pants would you? Either that or a really cute matching sundress, big sunglasses and a oversized beighe round hat protecting her from the sun.
The Giuseppe Shoes: I pictured a business woman on her day off wearing blue jeans and a white blouse, I picture desert like roads and a jeep too... hmmm?
Annette Shoes: ...well I guess I pictured the movie Marie Antoinette (Kirsten Dunst)... I have no idea where else you could possibly wear shoes like these. LOL
The Jeffrey Campbell shoes: I again pictured a business woman, but not a high-powered business woman. More like a secretary with black dress pants and paisley blouse. Matching the colors in the shoes (light salmon pink, cool ocean blue) with her accessories, maybe a cool blue hairband.
The Bongo Shoes: Definitely high-powered business woman. Matching pinstriped pants, white blouse with a little lace camisole and silver accessories. Very neat and tidy person.
Okay... so I should never become a fashion designer. These are just the pictures I had in my mind the second I saw these shoes. I thought they were cool.
Please feel to leave your own comments here with what you first pictured when you see these shoes. I would love to hear from you.
Happy Creating Everyone!
