Haunting My Dreams

I have a new batch of shoes that are haunting my dreams. The worst part is, for different reasons, I know I may never ever attain them.

The first are these adorable boyish gold oxfords that Kelly Wearstler is wearing. Apparently they are no where to be found, made some where in Italy and possibly vintage.


I even called her offices to try and track these down since Domino had no information. At this point it looks like I'm out of luck but I'm searching for substitutes. If I find a shoe in the right shape, I'm even considering gold-leafing it to get the proper sheen.

From the boyish and somewhat more practical to the ridiculously high-concept. I am in love love love with these illusion pointe wedges by Junko Shimada from his Spring/Summer 2009 runway collection.

I don't know if these will be made, if they will come in my size, how much they are or if I can even wear them. But I don't care, I want them.

Absolutely insane, yes, but I adore them.

You can see more images at The Coveted and Style Bubble, who were also intrigued.

The hardest part is waiting for months, not knowing if these will ever become a reality.

The other pair I am coveting are these spat boots from Chanel. They're so amazing and cheeky. I want to wear them with skirts, tights, and with jeans or leggings tucked in.

Okay, I'd probably wear them around the house in my pj's. I adore them that much.

These are Fall 2008 shoes. I could probably track them down. Why haven't I? I'm afraid. Afraid that I'll find them and then find out that they don't have my size, or they just sold out or something. If that were true, what would I do? I'd cry, that's what I'd do.

So maybe ignorance is bliss.

Oh yeah... I want Claudia Schiffer's hair (wig, I know) from the Fall campaign.

OMG- I agree about those Junko Shimada's!! So adorable.

I have a sneaking suspicion that those gold oxfords are by (my current designer crush) Dries Van Noten-also I *think* they may be men's, but WTF they are indeed fabulous. I've recently scored a pair of 'dirty-buck' oxfords in a beige-y nubuck-they shoulda been off white, but hey ho, rather than return them I plan to use a pewter shoe dye on them...let you know how they turn out!

I like the Chanels too.

Miss Coveted -

Thanks! Those were just from the Victoria's Secret catalog about a million years ago (when they were not so trashy). In the end, I decided to keep them.

Madame Suggia -

Please do let us know! I'd love to see and get some inspiration. And if you find that they are Dries.. please let me know. Although I'm sure if they're men's they'll never ever fit me.

I did find a prospect from Toast but I'm afraid they will be too big too, but I'm giving them a shot. We'll have to wait and see.

You read my mind - I also covet those Junko Shimada wedges! Hopefully they come out with a pair in size 9 and in your size too. Then we could compare notes on how fabulous they look and how to wear them. :)

When I saw these on the anthropologie website I thought of your post immediately (and lucky for you they only have size 6 left). It may not be an exact match, but I'd say they are pretty damn close.

pardon the L~O~N~G link.

Oh my! Lace-ups and gold sequins. I could be in Miss WendyB's Golden Girls club!
