Collectors is the theme for this month's Calypso Moon Artist Movement Challenge. All the shoes in this painting have the potential to bring me to tears, for two reasons, their satisfying beauty and the hold they have on my foot... somewhere around the 3 hour standing/walking point I am prepared to weep.
What do these shoes say about me? Hmmm Here's what I can say about them.
Starting at the top... the black Fluevogs. I find that unusual shaped shoes can add that je ne sais quoi finish to a look. These have such an exaggerated toe, one is tempted to make the Cyrano jokes. One must take the elevator, baby, these aren't sport shoes. (um, one moment, it depends on the sport.)
The camel colored suede bow tie shoe...Baci... smoochy Italian, don't you know? are also very versatile, fashion wise. Cute, Darling, Adorable...the grosgrain ribbon is just the thing!
And peeking out from the side is the heel of Red Patent Leather Jimmy Choo 'Quiet' Pump.
The red shoes are just lovely at the Opera, Ballet, Chamber Music venue.
Wear them to the grocery store and a whole new world of possibilities walks up to talk to you.
Did I ever tell you how I met the LoML? Just joking!
