we tipped the waiter

If you know me or are familiar with this blog then you know that I have a "shoe fetish" (gah I hate the word fetish.. it makes me think of moustache donning creeps who work at 7 eleven.. or something) of sorts. I have compiled a long list of all the shoes I would love to own or you know build a sweatshop in my house and have annoying children *cough* a certain cousin of mines *cough* *cough* can make replicas of them.... whichever is fine by me.
I mean really, what else children good for?
(I am superior, I am 16 after all and that's like half way to 30.. or something)

OK, back on track.... SHOES!
I have done a shoeGASM post before, but it wasn't nearly as opulent, long, or amazing as this post. I thought long and hard (get your mind out of the gutter) about the selection of shoes following... and It sort of tells you some info about me. Notice how I have a pair of freaking sweet Nike's but no Nicholas Kirkwoods... I guess I like what I like! (and am not easily swayed) or I just really like Nike's... Not to put down these or these, but those have been seen EVERYWHERE, and I wanted to showcase something a little different...

These Sergio Rossi shoes are by far my faves. I could be a tad biased because I have this thing for 'fashion with a conscience'. They are biodegradable heels! The thought of a biodegradable shoe just makes the corners of my mouth turn up in a smile formation and them being well made, not cheap or unattractive looking, is a plus! So to anyone who thinks that earth friendly shoes have to be clunky sneakers, I'm here to prove you wrong.. or rather these shoes are here to prove you wrong. I mean, just look at them! There is often a negative connotation that goes along with 'Biodegradable Clothing' many people with a right fashion sense wouldn't give them the time of day, but sometimes a cork heel is all you need to compliment a cocktail dress...

These handmade shoes are from a label by the name of Finsk, under the helm of designer Julia Lundsten.
I like where this label is going with its use of bi-products from other industries, that alone decreases their carbon foot print by a ton, by using already used materials you don't have to go using energy resources to make new. The brand has also caught the attention of iconic shoe designer Manolo Blahnik, who has said that the shoes are, "Divine, exquisite, and perfect"... and I can't agree more! Also just like the aforementioned Sergio Rossi heels, they are good for the environment. YAY!

I have always had an interest in architecture (also interior design, but that is for another post) and these shoes by Chau Har Lee are absolutely bonkers. They personify everything I've ever wanted to see in a shoe, stealth, sleek, sexy, possible weaponry (also see the fall '09 prada shoes). Yes I said possible weaponry, you never know when you're going to be walking down a dark alley and all you have for protection is your heels. (because I often walk down dark alleys)

Oh Balenciaga! I lovelovelove (to be said three times fast to prove just how much I dig them) these shoes!
It was one of those love at first sight deals for sure. And it is almost (by almost I mean fully on) to the point where when I see them in editorials I might drop a tear or two. I know just how I would style them and everything. Ohhhh the possibilities! I hate seeing magazines style them wrong, and by wrong I mean not on me, HAI I WOULD BE A MODEL IF I COULD WEAR THOSE SHOES.

Um. Question: Do I even have to say anything about these "absolutely flawless gorgeous Alber Elbaz you genius" Lanvin shoes? No? I don't? Well I think I might say just one thing: Lanvin foreva and evaaaaaaaa

Ohai, I would like to own you. I really dig Nike sneakers.... to the point where I won't even consider other sneakers because I figure them to be complete and utter trash//Nike wannabees. and nobody can be Nike, they are the originators. Show respect.

I was just asking myself: "Self, would a shoeGASM post be complete without some floral docs? and since myself answered: "no you retarded butthole, it wouldn't be" I had to throw these in somewhere..

There is no excuse for a person to not like these heels. They remind me of what Robin Hood would wear if he wasn't busy obsessing over "saving the poor and stealing from the rich" or whatever other shit that dude was into. I know you could picture it. Go ahead... PICTURE IT

Oh NOES! No more sexy shoe time?! I cannot compute that.
Until next time xoxo The StReeT Chanteuse
