Who Mourns For Adonais? 4

Three Gossip Girl-related things to get out of the way before this post:

1. Remember way back when I had a whole post about how drapey one-shoulder tops make me feel like I’m on a soap opera? Of course Georgina would show up on this week’s Gossip Girl wearing one and wreaking havoc on the Van der Woodsen-Humphries.

2. I can’t believe that the Gossip Girl writers used my April post as a template for the new season. I’m very flattered, but the least they could have done was flown me out to Paris to make sure everything went according to my vision.

3. For more Gossip Girl-related fashion, check out You Know You Love Fashion. I covered the season premiere, complete with giant pink pants and a Vanessa Abrams Accessory Count.

Moving on ….

There was an Original Flavor Star Trek episode about a planet occupied only by the Greek god Apollo. Abandoned by the rest of mankind, he tries to hold the crew of the Starship Enterprise captive, so that they’ll have no choice but to worship him.

I always liked the idea of now-defunct Gods go somewhere once they’re no longer worshiped – that they don’t just disappear when we stop believing. Of course, in my head they’re living in a retirement community, and it’s basically a sitcom with Norse and Greek gods.

Apparently, Vivienne Westwood subscribes to the same fantasy. She even designed Hermes his own pair of orthopedic winged sandals.

These are nearly sold out on Zappos.com, which kind of boggles my mind. I don’t often ask this, but if you see someone on the street wearing these, please take a picture. I just want to know what outfit these go with.

    Man, those platforms look so uncomfortable!

    Odd, only a few weeks ago someone in Gaia’s fashion forum was asking what to wear with those…
    If they were done correctly, they’d be such nifty shoes. Alas, the concept isn’t followed through all that well. They look like Greek-Goth-jelly-sandals. Or something.

    @ Kyra – Seriously. And there’s so much shoe to move every time you take a step.

    @Amy – That’s pretty funny. What did people suggest? (and, I agree – if done correctly, it could be okay. While it would be a bit literal, I’d be ok with a gold gladiator sandal with wings).

    Paired with a toga, perhaps?

    I took a look at the thread and no-one could actually say how they should be worn, general consensus was the bad execution/jelly sandal thing..
    Pairing them with socks was a suggestion, I think… :/
