I like metal accents. They’re shiny and make me feel like I’m a badass. Which is absurd, because I do not look like a badass, no matter how many studs and grommets I throw on my accessories. There are many words for what I am, but “badass” is not one of them. No, I am less badass and more, as I described myself last night to a bar patron, “tiny, rage-filled demon of hate.”
So instead, I fantasize about looking like a rocker chick, but throw on a pair of Converse and harass bar patrons. Pretty much the same thing, right?
In case you haven’t picked up on it, today’s Friday Feets theme is …
Pointy-toed flats with a rubber sole for traction and studs on the back? I’m intrigued. For under $20? Done.
And the counterpoint to the Xhilaration flats – a studded toe. And they’re in five colors, so you’re not just stuck with black.
I’ve been seeing a lot of shoes with this zipper detail. The difference is, most of the time they have it on the edge of the shoe, in prime rubbing-against-your-skin territory. More often than not, they have the potential to be very painful.
I like the use of the zipper as piping. And on the back, there’s the zipper pull tab thing (what are those called?), which I find really amusing. I don’t know why the zipper tab thing appeals to me, but it does.
And there you go. A quick post about metal accents, because I am running late and need to leave the house 20 minutes ago.
