Prada Camoscio Deco Platforms for the Monday

Camoscio Deco Suede Platform Sandal from Prada

Manolo says, here it is the first Monday in March and Old Man Winter is still battering away at your resolve and sanity.

“Any day, now,” you keep saying to yourself, “the sun will break through, the snow will melt, and Spring will be here.”

But then you get up in the morning, and leave the house, only to be assaulted by freezing rain, or hail, or snow, or some deadly combination of freakish weather that leaves you cursing the weatherman and his ignorant ilk.

Oh for the simpler days, when all that was necessary to make the sun shine was to throw the few sacrificial captives into the gaping maw of the bottomless limestone hole that led to the subterranean realm of Gaa’agkai, the God of Inclement Weather.

“First to the edge of the sacrifical hole,” you shout at the heavens, the stinging rain whipping across your face, “Al Roker!”

Oh well, at least when you get to the office you can look at the beautiful vernal shoes, like these Camoscio Deco Suede Platform Sandal from Prada. It even has the spring flower on the insole!

    All I have to say is that when I see lovely shoes like these, I’m glad that I live in Florida!

    You slay me!

    LOL!

    I bring my shoes to work with me so I can still wear the lovely shoes but they are safe from the weather.

    Were I still wearing heels, I would perform an interpretive dance to the muse of my bank account, and sacrifice an infant or two to get my hands on those beauties!

    I love those shoes too. It’s nice to think of spring when looking at them. The tulip on the insole is such a fun touch!

    You wrote “deco” and I read “disco.” And I think those shoes would work for both.

    It is indeed sunny here in San Francisco. If I saw a woman wearing those shoes it would be difficult for me not to say something friendly and complimentary such as BITCH GIVE ME THOSE SHOES but I think I could restrain myself.
