the forties, flowers…and feet

flowered feet

came upon a girl named Courtney who had these amazing flowers tattoed on her feet; which were sitting pretty in some very retro 1940&#39s persimmon colored peep toe wedges. she told me that her boyfriend, Cole Dirt from Artistic Encounter, did them for her.

we&#39re both in the visual profession – and so i appreciated a great vignette like this.

this blog really isn&#39t only about shoes…although it seems that lately…my accidental &#34happenings-upon&#34 have been a lot of self expression happening with people&#39s feet.

hmmmm…a theme or a thread… of very expressive feet.

well heeled…

silver heeled shoe

sometimes strange things occur while i&#39m #happenstancing.

i was on my way into the restroom somewhere and this older woman behind me (i only mention the older part, because of what she said!) says:

&#34wow. the heels on your shoes!!! you look like a biker chick that MEANS BUSINESS!&#34

(incidentally, the shoes are new, and they are by Jeffrey Campbell)

my family has a bit of an inside joke re: my &#39shoe expression&#39…i think the phrases &#34witch shoes, pilgrim shoes, bondage shoes&#34 and other such adjectives have been used…

right on the heels of…ungulates

befitting for Black Friday.

i&#39m bemused at the trend, of late, of ungulate like shoes…hinting at women fashioning themselves in the image of spectacular centaur – like creatures.
