Cut Copy Paste: Miu Miu

These are the shoes I’ve been dreaming about for ages: the Miu Miu studded ankle boots, €600,-.

And these are the boots I’ve bought yesterday at the Dutch shoestore van Haaren. They were €40,-.

Clog it!

A couple of years ago I walked by a shop window and I looked at the shoes of my dreams. I have a soft spot for heels, t-bar straps and studs, and these shoes had them all combined in one:  the Prada silver t-bar clogs. They were $490, my brain did function, so I walked away. A couple of weeks later, they where on sale, and there was one pair left. In my size. So I thanked the shoegods (hmm, it probably was a shoegoddess) and bought my first pair of Prada’s.  They walk like hell (the wooden sole isn’t exactly comfy), but I never regretted it.

My beloved Prada’s.

The great thing about studded, high heelded clogs is 1) they never look too girly, 2) they make a lot of noise when you walk (I like stomping around), 3) men don’t understand them (in fashion, that’s a good thing) and 4) you can wear them with everything! The only condition is that they must have a very high heel, or else you will look like a Swedish macrobiotic, dungarees wearing type from the seventies. Unless you like that look, ofcourse. So I was really excited to see that Karl Lagerfeld brought the coolest version of all back on the catwalk for Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

The 1970’s version.

Alexa (with Tavi next to her), wearing the Chanel one’s. Some girls have all the luck…

 

I love these, they are (how strange?!?)  from Victoria’s Secret.

Mary-Kate Olsen wearing Chloé clogs and a Barbara Hulanicki for Topshop top. 

And finally the über Dutch version. As you all know, the Dutch live in windmills , we eat some cheese for breakfast, and then we walk out of the door into the wide tulip fields, wearing the traditional Dutch clogs (without heels ofcourse, because they would stick in the muddy clay soils). 😉 These are the designer version by Viktor & Rolf.

Kinky or Cool: Over the Knee Boots

Once in every five years “over the knee boots” make a comeback. And every time I’m tempted to give it a try and buy them, but always have some excuses not to. The very small, sane part of my brain says: “You will look like a cheap tart, you can’t wear them to work (some of my clients are extremely conservative christian white males), and they will only last one season. But then I saw these pictures of the Dutch Royal Family: Princess Maxima is wearing them! Shocking! I mean, if she can wear them, so can I! So maybe I’m going to listen to the little devil in my head this time and wave my creditcard…

Hot or Not: Strappy Buckle Sandal Boots?

The following pictures are from Black Magazine (a magazine I’ve never heard of before…more info is welcome!). The model is Kim Noorda.  I can’t get my mind of these photo’s because the shoes/boots/sandals are so intriguing….

In theory, I shouldn’t like them……I mean, I don’t even know how to describe them, there isn’t an occasion you can wear them (except for a fashion shoot) and they are soooo over the top. But I love them and I can’t think of a reason why…..?
