this book shoes by tim blanks was given to me at christmas by a special friend of mine.
he of course is aware that i love fashion and thought this would be appropriate.
i think what is truly appropriate in this case would be to let the pictures do the talking. more text and thoughts later! *all pictures from the book, copyrighted.

very runway-stomper-type. one of the standout photos, in my opinion.
a shoe wall that i must admit completely reminded me of jane from seaofshoes, who really does have a wonderfully inspirational AND aspirational curated collection of footwear.
amazing gilded/palliated platform...but mainly i love how much of a centrepiece the shoe is, in the midst of all that ornate architecture. lovely and decadent!
this is the shoe version of a valentino collection... very tongue in cheek, nudge-nudge wry humour.
something every girl can relate to--choosing clothes and shoes can sometimes be like picking your favorite ice cream flavor: there's just no telling!
all in all, this is an absolutely GORGEOUS spread of witticisms about fashion and shoes, juxtaposed lovingly with photography that is equal parts clever, sexy and cute. if you have friends who love shoes, or if you love them yourself, then you should either buy the book or tell them to visit this blog! HAHA.
ps: the stiletto effect, if you see this, SHOUTOUT TO YOU, you will love this! and of course i will just die if anyone tells JANE to check this out...
