*drooool.. i want those alexander mcqueen heels.

i found some very disturbing news on shoewawa today, linking me to this article. here are a couple of excerpts, and it should clue you in on exactly how crazy it is.

"if the shoe doesn't fit... fix the foot"

"toes are the new nose"

"his demographic... includes a high percentage of young attractive women who take care of their feet: they have regular pedicures, paint their nails, and wear shoes that expose their toes, and they are unhappy if the second one hangs over the edge."

"...the ascendancy of the shoe designer has strapped us into whip-thin sandals and vertiginous heels, at once revealing our imperfections...is that an incipient bunion there? a touch of toe-besity?"

"...toe procedures are all performed at the same time... this might include a toe tuck for toe-besity or an injection of collagen into the footpad to make the wearing of very high heels more comfortable."

"i have women coming in with Manolos saying, 'my foot, this shoe: make it work.' one woman asked if he would remove her fifth toe"

and here's an interesting tidbit from that same article:

Feet and footwear have a long cultural history: the longer second toe was idealised in Greek sculpture and considered a sign of intelligence in the Renaissance; foot sex found favour as an alternative form of intimacy during epidemics of syphilis; for troubadours the ideal female foot was white, narrow with high arches and long straight toes; toe cleavage was big in the 16th century.
foot sex??? wtf is that?? eeeeeuuughh.

OMG. I've been obsessing over these ever since they arrived at Net-a-porter. Hotness. SO on another note, what did you wear that chanel purse with? I wish my mom had chanel purses... i'd raid her closet all day.
