Electric Feel


I was in need of some new lifts and my mom agreed. We headed to the Steve Madden store and already had an attendant in the back finding another pair of shoes when I spotted these beauties on another woman who was trying them on. It was sort of like instant love and I thank the world for the first lady that spotted them because they were located in such an awkward and secluded place in the store that I never would have seen them amidst the other 5 inchers and python-studded heels.

I also purchased these in black as well and Im eager to wear them both. They are beeeeautiful, and my mother says she had an exact pair in the 70s. Figured Steve Madden would copy them, I mean, I saw an exact replica of this shoe in his store marked for $130, and a very Alexander Wang Brenda-esque bag displayed all over the store. Im not complaining though. It gives lowly serfs like me a chance to live like Im living the high life of luxury. It just makes more sense to me to buy the two exact replicas of the MJ shoe from Steve Madden for the price of the one real thing.

oh steve madden, a poor girls pass to designer shoes. i have a pair of his boots, which are pretty much an exact copy of $500 pair of boots. i was at an upscale department store a couple of months ago wearing those, and saw the expensive original pair being tried on by some woman. i wasn't really paying attention until i saw her look at me and follow my feet until i walked out of the room, and heard her whisper to her friend, "she's wearing these boots". except i wasn't, i was wearing knock-offs. and hey, they look the same! and they cost 1/5 of the price. not that i wouldn't love having the original, out of sheer vanity, of course.

E said...

Good ol' Steve. Can always count on him to make

E said...
