I was on instagram the other day and saw the most stunning lace heels. I then was compelled to google the shoes and learn more about them. It was like I found a treasure trove of the most amazing shows ever. For me, it would seem that lace shoes would be hard to design because I would try to avoid having them be kitschy or appropriate for only weddings since lace usually conveys Victorian era daintiness to me…
Well on my search, I found this one that was just sheer awesomeness because it seems to be edgy enough just from being high tops.
and these were the pair that started my quest:
But that search led me to a list of shoes on polyvore
that were based on those keywords and although some of them weren't
exactly the "lace" I was thinking of, these shoes are in their own right
all sorts of amazing!
Like this one from open ceremony:
and this Jeffrey Campbell one (I absolutely LOVE Jeffrey Campbell!):
and Christian Dior's take:
So, if you're free today, do what I did and ogle these shoes and start imagining your fantasy shoe closet ;D
