Scored a pair of pretty good Kirkwood-esque shoes…
aaaand got bored, played with photoshop, made this image thingie.
I believe these beauties are supposed to be these Kirkwoods:
But the copies lack the colored snakeskin heel and that…gasp…that…THAT orgasmic chipped-block platform bottom.
One day, I’ll have the $800-$2000 for a pair of really-real Kirkwoods. Sure. For now, my patent black rip-offs will serve me well, exiting cars and entering bars in Los Angeles.
Here’s a fantastic article/image source for Kirkwood’s Fall 2009 line at Obsessed with Shoes. I see the use of HAIR or monkey-hair-type used as fringe. Remember when Tim Gunn almost barfed when Chris March (the awesome drag-fashion PR designer) used human hair as a trim? Now, hair is everywhere. Good or bad, I’m not sure yet…
Tangent off Project Runway memories – when the heck is that Christian Siriano for Payless line coming out?
I want cheap chic now, hello!
