oh no... those shoes are beautiful to me. I love anything (well almost) that captures antiquity. Now, that price is kinda ignorant as well as the fact that Barneys tops the initial retailer list. But am I missing something else tho? Oh yeah...yes, I get that kind of love. It's the hot steamy sexy kind with lots of lace and dirty words. I feel exactly the same GIRL. ;-)
the beauty of old things, to me, is the hiSTORY of them. i was finally ready to accept the denim debauchery of distressing, but this is too much. my arguement remains - why buy something new that looks used? i can see sneaker-heads dying for a pair, however, i'd much rather the refurbished approach - if people turned in their old sneakers, the soles could be replaced but the worn fabric kept and voi la! old-new sneaks! (and it makes better eco-sense too.)ps- i tried the link again, and i got it this time. =)
yea. posers are just plain sad.everyone has something unique in them. most are afraid to let their differences shine.i always wonder what the world would look like if we werent afraid to look/dress/be exactly like we felt inside.
moonchild - i think the world would pretty much look the way it does now, some parts intensely beautiful and others frightfully harrowing.
I feel ya'll. I guess the wonder of old stuff is in the stories and secrets that each wear and tear carries, but I do think that there is still an interesting story behind things that are created new with the hopes of looking old. Creating a new take on what's old is a great deal of what fashion is all about when you (I) really think about it. These shoes are just in exaggerated form.
You got that right!
