I've been rather unadventurous with my shoe choices lately, which is uncharacteristic of me. "No pain, no gain" tends to my philosophy when it comes to footwear, and I barely ever wore flats, until I caved a couple of weeks ago and picked up a pair of flat sandals. Not flip-flops (which everyone has, so doesn't count), but real flat sandals. And I've been wearing them incessantly, as one is wont to do with new and novel purchases.
Of course, so schizophrenic is my signature style stance that voila, one week later, I'm surfing for stripper shoes after Sassy Hong Kong posted these Marc Jacobs-alike heart-shaped cut-out wedges. After googling Karo Shoes, I've discovered a whole new world of deliciously tacky, wooden wedges with clear plastic straps all over the place and embellishments you never thought possible, that demand to be worn with high-waisted puffy A-line skirts and loose sheer tank tops...
Granted, I haven't witnessed many strippers in action, but I don't think I've ever seen such edgy footwear as these lace-back platform booties.
Clear and tacky and oh-so-wacky -- can you imagine how cute these would be? But as for walking... that might be a challenge.
The cut-out shapes are at once innovative and super-kitschy but I love them anyway.
Get them at Sassy and Sweet
