I See You Skip!


It may be June but I've got my eyes set on the fall clothes, specifically these shoes from the Anna Molinari collection.

Mmmm, GORGEOUS! I want a pair in red, so I can feel like Dorothy a la Wizard of Oz. It's my favourite movie of all time. I once dressed up like her for Hallowe'en!

Not my taste. I a little too prostitute-ish for me.

I love the purple glitter, but I'm not digging the rubber band-like strap. The heel would be too much for me to wear all day...A private school probably would not allow them...but I love them all the same. <3

i totally agree with 'geisha' she took the words right out of my head. the elastic strap looks totally goofy with glamour of the shoe whatevs. they're still fabulous and i want them in red so i can pretend i'm dorothy.

Do you think that purple will be THE color for fall again (three years running) I don't know if the world is that boring...

Sorry for the anonymous note.
I do not have a blog that I can share with the world, but I did want to chime in here.

From behind those are just about the cutest shoes I've ever seen. Cleary that strap is just a little too orthopedic for such a whimsical style.

Having said that I also cannot help but notice all of the Dorothy comments they have generated.

It got me thinking that it'd be great if you could offer more of an historical perspective on fashion because your readers need this desperately.

If our cultural references are limited to popular American films, clearly we need to be educated.

I'm a lurker on this blog (Leith...thank you for linking to me automatically btw....!)
but I just wanted to reply to the comment above.

What sort of historical references should Leith be making with regards to the sparkly shoes? I'm not asking out of malice, I'm just asking purely because I myself am very much interested in fashion history and unfortunately, the shoes don't conjure up any historical costume references for me. Perhaps you'd like to enlighten us!

The shape is a little similar to 1920's heels the way they curve in but alas, too high and as for the sparklyness - I suppose I can only think of Terry de Havilland Ziggy Stardust type shoes. Which is an even later reference than the Wizard of Oz film that everyone has been referring to. I'm a little baffled to say the least.....

gorgeous, i'd slice out that heinous band though.

o my gosh those stunning, to bad about the strap,

7:48 PM  
Anonymous sara m said...

Way way way cute. Severely dislike the band, but I can see how it would be necessary, seeing as the shoe is so high that you could just walk out of it if not for said strap.

No offense, but how many times does the whole 'wizard of oz' thing need to come back, didn't we just go through the whole red glittery shoes?

Well I am no fashion historian, but I have noticed that in fashion magazines and newspapers (like WWD) the writers often offer an historical perspective on fashions. I find that it helps me to better understand trends.

Yes, of course Leith should write whatever she wants but unless she offers a context to appreciate fashion,all of this just comes down to personal tastes rather than objective information.

Yes these shoes do conjure up notions of the "disco foot" style of Elton John in Tommy and of course Ziggy Stardust. I think that is very relavent regardless of the fact that they came after Dorothy.

But there is a ton of info about glitter and glittering shoes on the internet, including theories about how it was invented by the Chinese and how Napoleon's troops used it at Waterloo to distract the enemy. I understand this is where the saying "all that glitters is not gold" originated.

Whatever. I like this blog but I am positive that a little history could be very helpful for devoted readers like me.

hey those are very pretty but I have noticed a design flaw ;wouldn't you fall over in them? or is that just me being my boring self with no heels?

Those shoes are amazing! I have to agree with some other people in that the elastic band is odd but other than that, they're delicious!

wow...that's just beautiful.

I agree with the elastic thing...it's a bit of marc jacobs' and it has the visual effect of about a band-aid.

Ooh la love. Normally I'm not so into Betty Boop cute, but the 4+" heel justifies the shoe.

really cute shoes, over the top a bit, but most definitely really cute. i think if you wear that shoe, you would definitely need the attidude to match.

The strap doesn't really bother me that much, it sort of reminds me of my old ballet slippers.

those are adorable, but they look extremely painful.

okay, whoever this anomynous chick is should shut up! if you want to make a difference, then post your name so we have a bit of an idea about who u are. And even make your own historical fashion blog. One things for sure, no one here wants to here you whine about this blog, and the gorgeous shoes that only YOU dont like because you obviously have no taste whatssoever. Leave if you dont want to look at them, and stop posting so many badly written comments, biatch.

i actually have heels from payless that are VERY similar to these, only turquoise glitter instead of fuschia, or purple. i love them soooo much! they were great for a play that i was in as dorthy. that's the comment i get most often when i wear them, that they look like dorthy shoes.
