summer came like cinnamon.

like anything, shoes are a thing of passion. and if anyone's passionate about shoes, i am. at the moment i love:



the bright pump. (courtesy of bakersshoes.com)

&




the nine west gladiator wedge.
i don't know what it is about these shoes, but as overrated & overplayed as they seem to be, i can't get them out of my mind. their bold allure doesn't scream for attention. instead, their laid-back look is conveyed with the just-barely distressed brown leather and the chic shape. i admire them constantly, but i'd be surprised if i purchased them - ever.

I definitely agree about the gladiator wedges. They're really amazing in a kind of bizarre way. I'd never buy them, but I definitely I admire them on all the style blogs.

I think the gladiator is some-what overrated but you can't swing a fascina without seeing them! I've just started viewing local ranges and it's like Russell Crowe has exploded everywhere!

I love shoes also. Those gladiators are great, I love them. I already have my flat pair but I will get me a pair like this one soon.

Yes gladiators are everywhere of late, but they are good looking, how can you blame people? The bright heels are all gorgeous.

I actually bought those Nine West shoes in black - maybe it's just me, but there's something about their arch that makes them kindof uncomfortable for me, even though I wear heels alot! But I've suffered for shoes many times before, and this probably won't be the last time! I need a flat pair of galdiators next!

And Jessica, I think all the models for the future hippie fashion show have been selected (Andrea, from Parlour, who's doing the hair, actually cast most of the models), but I'll let you know if not! We're really going to have alot of fun with the styling for this show - the hair will be big, and the clothing & accessories will be bright!
