Just. So. Wrong. - une femme d'un certain âge

Just. So. Wrong.

Jelly–oui, jelly!!–oxford, $100.

These are the footwear equivalent of Tofurky. My feet start to sweat just contemplating these.

    Jellies are supposed to be no-sweat sandals, silly, popsicle-coloured and most of all cheap! A crime against jellies!

    Casual shoes in gold or silver seem to come around every few years, but thankfully it’s a trend that never seems to last very long.

    Yeah, I’m a little baffled by this sudden popularity of the petroleum-based shoes. These Melissa things are showing up everywhere. Some of the designs are genuinely cute, but I’m with you — if they aren’t galoshes, why on earth would you wear rubber shoes?

    That is just a petri dish for foot fungus…as well as shockingly bad taste.

    Ha ha ha…I once yelled at a friend’s teen daughter for wearing shoes like this with a cute dress. She looked like a hot mess but at least those were real, leather shoes. Imagine what I would have said to her if she had been wearing these.

    Uh, no thanks…I’ll stick to my Cole Hahn basic and boring pumps…in leather.

    Oy. My retinas are bleeding a little…

    StyleSpy, because they are terrific for beachy/pooly places- just rinse off. For that matter they are impervious to tequila too. They should never be shoes, just sandals, slides, etc.

    Just the thing to wear if you also own that Jeff Koons gold-painted porcelain Michael Jackson and Bubbles sculpture. Just the thing to wear to visit that scupture if someone else owns it…

    When I saw the picture and hadn’t read your post I thought it was something you were throwing away. (No offense intended — they might have had a moment, non. . .?)

    It’s hard to believe a retailer could imagine selling them and for $100. Shocking.

    Hah! I do love my Melissas, but they have open toes … these might be a smidge … warmer.

    Maybe if you are in the nursing profession and want to shake it up a bit!! xv

  14. September 15, 2009 / 9:51 pm

    Actually…. I LOVE THEM! And will probably buy a pair. :-p

    To sweat AND to stink… ugh.

    Keep on looking at stuff like this and you´ll find it easy to stay on the shopping ban ! P.S I have survived through my first day.

    I would be so into these if they were in soft leather!!!

    Dear Pseu,

    This is the address of the website of a very interesting museum in Belgium: http://www.shoesornoshoes.com/index.php
    Once in Europe it is not very far from Paris.
    A few weeks ago I discovered your weblog and since than I am hooked.
    It is so nice to read that some one in the US thinks the same about a lot of things.
    I am une femme d’un certain age from Holland (soon from Brussels, Belgium)

    Glou – thanks so much for reading, and I’m glad you enjoy! I’ll have a look at that website. I do hope to visit Belgium soon.
