To tell you how bad it was, in high school I had a hot pink shirt with black polka dots. I also had heart shaped earrings that were also hot pink with black polka dots. Umm hmm.... I probably would have worn these Kirkwood shoes with an equally rose-bedecked outfit (from Browns £475.00).
But that's not the worst of it. One of my most notorious (and shamefully recalled) outfits was where I wore a white button down shirt with fruit painted on it, over a hot pink tank top and bright bright yellow pants. This was accessorized with a bangle in the same colors and plastic fruit dangly earrings. It was the 80s but dear lord! No wonder I didn't date much. If these Charlotte Olympia heels were around (and not $1696.20!!!) I would probably have worn them at the time too. Seriously, I had a problem.
Of course I don't think I would have gone this far. Even I, who still loves a good theme-y shoe (aka my Ashley Dearborns) thinks the zebra mane is too much. (JC de Castelbajac $677.50)
I think the theme here is "No".
Disclosure - I kind of want those Charlotte Olympia fruit heels. Old habits die hard.
