I had just come back into the big apple from a trip and it was my first night out, I felt inspired when I opened my shoe closet, and I said, why not wear out two different shoes form the same manufacturer?, same heel height but different styles, similar color, why not experiment? And as I went downtown to one of my favorite watering holes in the middle of chinatown I rocked them both till wee hours of the nite. So fun!
These Balenciaga Pre Fall 2007/8 shoes have an amazing construction. The front platform shape resembles a horses hoof, which since I am horse lover myself could not resist the temptation to have them. Made in Italy of course!
Last year thanks to the help of a good friend in the Italian Tuscan hills, I made a paper sketch turn into a real shoe under the label VALBLU. These shoes are inspired by the skies star constellations, they are asymmetrical, where the left and the right shoes are different but there is a common theme that runs through them, why not right? So fun!
These fun wedge lace up booties where designed for the Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2006 runway, originally they were white suede, I painted them by hand with various sharpie markers, the result, vibrant blue hue. So fun!
