multiple shoe personality disorder

Although my shoe game is nowhere near Jane's, I have my own little comfy niche in the fashion blogging world when it comes to tacky stripper shoes. I am the guru of shady shoe situations and have amassed most of my favorite and well worn shoes through stripper shoe webstores, sex stores and actual stripper recommendations.

Shoes are usually the only thing I bother splurging on, mostly because I've had bad memories with vintage shoes at a cheap price so I'm forced to go for new shoes. I'm a really picky shoe person though. I don't like buying knockoffs, and it befuddles me when knockoffs cost almost as much as the actual shoe they're ripping off from (COUGH I CAN NAME A FEW POPULARBLOG!SHOEBRANDS THAT ARE KNOWN FOR THIS, COUGH) so usually I don't even bother. I do obsess over shoes on a daily basis though, and that one pair of Stella McCartney's Kate Lanphear wore?? Those were the first thing I ever saved up from fashion wise I think. I finally got like $550, JUST enough to buy a pair online, but they sold out of my size the day before. Those shoes are cursed I think because every time I have enough money for them some circumstance prevents me from getting them. OH WELL SO WHAT WHO CARES sobs I will die alone without those shoes and my life will be incomplete

new shoes: prim and proper

Anyway I got these in the mail (finally) a few hours ago. I've been wanting a pair of creepers for almost as long as I've wanted Rocking Horse shoes -- which I still don't have, sadly -- and at 4 in the morning two weeks ago I stumbled upon this shady sex store shoe warehouse outlet website with horrible design and questionable customer service and was like, "I don't care if the reviews for the website suck I want them give them to me I don't care if they are too small they are perfect and cheap give them NOW" and so I got them and immediately passed out on my keyboard.

Oh, did I mention they were 20 dollars including shipping????????? HAHAHAHA! And luckily they fit perfectly.

dorothy

My gramma got me a pair of Dorothy slippers when I was about nine or so but they were too small so I never got to wear them. I'd spend a good hour trying to curl my feet enough to be able to put them on but it never happened. I've wanted a pair of ones that fit me for ages, and these are them. Got them at a costume store in the sexy costume section for like, $30? I've gotta spray them with gloss or something so the glitter doesn't fall off though.

schoolgirl marm

What I really dig about these is that they're clear. As in, CLEAR PLASTIC! It's great. I wanted a super versatile pair of creepers and these are it. One day you can be schoolgirl marmy like the above and the next you can wear cat socks and it gives off a whole 'nother vibe.

The heel is about four inches or so, I don't remember. I only like high heels... I've never been into kitten heels because they do nothing for me except make me trip a lot and make my calves look even shorter than they are. Not a good look because I'm barely 5 ft 2.



Necessary terrible gif of me clicking my heels together poorly is necessary. You can't tell but I am actually wearing knee high lace rights and a ruffly garter..... with my highschool sweatshirt because I'm the boss.

best ever.

DEVASTATINGLY AWESOME, AREN'T THEY? I am wearing them with some tights I got from Elizabeth awhile ago, they're from We Love Colors. I love We Love Colors, I need more stuff from them.

The quality of the shoes is definitely nothing to write home about, but I think I prefer them kind of funky and trashy looking than if they were high quality leather or something because I'd be afraid of ruining them. I have been waiting for these shoes to arrive so I can debut my amazeballs lolita dress I got in early December off of ebay. FUTURE OUTFIT POST FEATURING BOTH ITEMS IS IMMINENT, I PROMISE YOU.

Anyway thats it! I was feelin' chatty today as you can tell. Hopefully you enjoyed my ramblings anyway? Much love.

looking at these shoes: my eyes rolled back into my head and i started having convulsions because they are so. fucking. epiiiiiic.

Roma said...

I am so jealous of all of these shoes. I feel the need to splurge at bergdorf on fancy shoes now....raaah!

Ria said...

Jealous of your shoes and the deals you got. Those creepers are love. Noting that gloss trick for glittery shoes.

Kerry said...

can you post the sketch website you got the creeper shoes off of?

the StReeT chanteuse said...

I want to be you. I mean.. you are awesome. those shoes are imperative to life. 'specially the creepers. ((°J°))

Arabelle said...

kerry: i would but i totally forgot it and they never sent me an email invoice or anything so i have no way of knowing. i CAN tell you i found them through google shopping and they were on clearance and that the shoe brand is Demonia though.

Cara said...

I actually hate you so much right now. Jealousy turned into hate when I figured out that the creepers were clear.
Wanna hear my extremely sad creepers story?
I wanted a pair of creepers for over a year and my ma said that I could get a pair off Ebay if I find them in my size and provided they weren't too expensive. So off I happily trot to Ebay and find a perfect WONDERFULLY tacky pair of pink/leopard print creepers. I ordered them. After around 11 days, I ask the seller why were they taking so much to arrive. They said that they were damaged in the post so I could have a refund but they had no more creepers left. I very nearly sobbed uncontrollably at my keyboard.

I write this much about a pair of shoes and didn't even comment on your feminism posts. That shows how shallow I am.

Cara said...

I think this might be the site? (I had it bookmarked...)

http://www.demonia.co.uk/shop.html

Arabelle said...

it's ok Cara we don't judge here. n_n

Arabelle said...

nope thats not the site i got the ceepers from, they're a third party website. yellow layout??

The Visual Jerbil said...

i was inspired by one of your Stripper Shoe posts from the past and this Christmas I purchased my very first pair of the most ridiculous unwalkable stripper shoes I could find, so I think it's kinda cool you're posting about stripper shoes again. I financed them with Christmas money from my Grandma which nerdishly made it even more fun.

I like these red sparkly ones, I aspire to own ones like that but 4 inches higher in wedged form.

Cara said...

O god, how much of a bitch did I sound? Sorry, I needed to rant about not owning creepers.

Will a smiley face make up to it?

:)

Arabelle said...

yes of course cara! and i didn't think you were acting bitchy at all. i found it amusing. :)

sojourned in style said...

in a word. awesome. not only their look but where you got them from-sex stores and stripppers!

See through plastic shoes???? Are you serious??? omigod those are fantastic! As for the dorothy shoes, those were the only things I wanted in pre-school....there was a girl on the playground who I always admired because she had them and wore them with style! Of course, my Mom didnt want me to wear them, because well I would've looked like a 3 year old slut, but hey, I dreamed....http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/
