Since apparently the production of Simone Rocha's SS13 runway shoes were suddenly discontinued due to quality issues, my sparkly dreams of finally owning a pair of perspex-soled platformed patent brogues went down the sewer (fingers-crossed I could still obtain their sample piece). Thankfully, Stella McCartney's spring collection also offers perspex footwear. These 'plexi wedges' features perforated details, shock white vegan leather, and exposed toes; which to me, adds up to being quite the perfect pair of summer shoes. As much as I enjoy the sartorial humor of Phoebe Philo's 'furkinstocks' for Céline, please remove all notions of me actually possessing a pair on the fact that I would sweat profusely through my feet; ergo, ruining them within a week (though I do fantasize about the extreme comforts of walking on fur). As for now, I'd conjour up a few spring ensembles to go with these sandals which at certain angles, might just create the illusion of levitating an inch of the ground. Now I'm thinking about renaming the title of this post: "Getting Some Perspex-tive".
