Fancy Feet, Twinkle Toes

December 30, 2009 § 2 Comments


This post does not condone, support or encourage the wearing of leg warmers. Ballet dancers may be the exception. Maybe.


For consideration, another option regarding what to wear with our shoes, ladies. Most of us are quite content, and have been, with bare legs at all times and tights in the chillier months. This might change if Vicki Kysella at Voet hosiery has her way. Her cute and alright, a bit kitschy, line of lingerie-inspired booties are begging to be displayed with, not hidden in, your heels. Drawing from Madonna’s lace anklets and gloves seen on fingers and toes in the 80s, these pared down silhouettes are more subtle than showy. The hint of lace peeking out from a peep toe or from the vamp of a sleek heel might be just enough sass without turning an outfit into a costume (be advised however: add brightly colored leggings or strappy heels, and you’ve gone full Halloween). I might try them with shorts and a substantial heel or a more feminine heel and skirt for a girlish touch. I’m thinking a plaid with lace trim would be lovely.

Would you dare venture in this ‘lingerie for your toes’ as she puts it, or is it far too flashy or just plain unnecessary?
