The Belle Epoque from the Nicholas Kirkwood

Manolo says, here is something to enliven your Thursday…

Belle Epoque from Nicholas Kirkwood Belle Epoque from Nicholas Kirkwood Belle Epoque from Nicholas Kirkwood

It is the smashingly striking, strikingly smashing, Belle Epoque from the Nicholas Kirkwood. This is the fantasy shoe of your dreams, the sort of shoe you would put before you put on anything else, twirling around the room in nothing but your all together.

How could one not be made happy by this?

    The bow on the back! The gold piping!
    I’d wish for a lower vamp, but other than that….and I have just the dress to go with them.

    Is it wrong of me to say you have first born for those shoes?

    BTW my first born is a 20 year old art student who consumes about 2 gallons of milk a day among other things. So I would imagine there will be no takers.

    My first thought: Beautiful!
    My second thought: I’d only wear them if I were a realtor.
    My third thought: Or a sales rep.

    I’m neither.

    I love the way the delicately evoke the chopine. The bow at the back does not thrill me, as I find the angularity of the cut and the rigidity of the lacquer clash with the delicate tracery on the front. But, oh, that front… That front in traipsing around Venice in a top that slips fetchingly off one shoulder, hinting at secrets you’ll never find out.

      the way “they” delicately evoke the chopine. It’s harder to use this tablet’s keyboard than I thought.
