Check out these adorable heels from Streetzie’s High Heel Bunny Slippers ! It’s like wearing a stuffed bunny on your feet. It’s like wearing bunny slippers, but only high heel. It’s like having a furry friend cuddle your toes. You get the idea… They come in 4 colors of powder blue, black , white and of course, PINK! I had to order a pair to go with my hello kitty ensembles (because you can never have enough pinky cuteness). They are actually very comfy and the heels aren’t hoochie high, so that’s good. And no bunnies were harmed in making these, although somewhere a 3 year old girl is weeping about her beheaded stuffed bunnies. So, if you see a crazy lady in a hello kitty skirt, unicorn necklace, bows in in her hair and pink bunny high heel slippers chances are it’s me. Be sure to say hi.

The Heel Condom is probably the most simple way to class up a pair of heels. That is if your definition of classy is a leopard leotard with matching fingerless opera length gloves. No! Some of the designs are actually ok. Puerto Rican designer  Sandrysabel Ortiz (picture her with a margarita in hand  and  wearing a marabou robe from the latest Forplay catalog) designed these clever contraptions to dress up any boring pair of heels. They make even the cheapest heels, well… even cheaper. Kidding! Go to the site, ignore the  The Nanny-inspired music on the site, and get yourself a pair!

If you have a pair of old ‘Ho’ shoes laying around and it doesn’t reek too bad of feet and cheap perfume, then this might be a brilliant DIY project! Or you can let  Giddy Spinster do the honors. Nothing says elegant and nature lover like a stiletto planter. Grow your own personal cactus plant in a defunct stiletto to remind you of your heydays an untouchable female….

So, really, this sounds like a cool idea only if the cactus plants were rosemary because I would perch that sh*t right on the kitchen counter. Call me demure.

Check out the other works of Giddy Spinster including a mascara wand art piece, blow dryer and bookends. Just as long as you don’t mind the smell of feet, I suppose.

Check out Alberto Guardiani‘s lipstick heel for  $410! It’s badass and you know you want it… I know I want it, but only if the the lipstick was a blade! Like here:

That’s me modeling in Vivienne Westwood shoes and a lipstick knife I picked up at some gun convention. Seriously, I don’t know why I was at a gun convention because I don’t even own a gun. Funny how I ended in random places during my youth! Anyway, that lipstick knife used to go with me everywhere in my pocketbook to ward off any loonies or criminal types. I somehow wish it would have warded off bad boyfriends, but it seemed to attract them more than anything! Anywho, I still have it, but choose mace over my weapon of choice these days.

Going back to those heels, I do like how the lipstick looks bloody… I shall save my pennies for it!

Director Emmanuel Itier and Sharon Stone

So, I got out of my Pj’s and off the computer to attend a fancy event recently for my husband’s documentary,  ‘The Invocation‘. Emmanuel Itier directed it and Sharon Stone narrated the documentary on Religion around the world and how it effects our world today. Deepak Chopra, Desmund Tutu, Mark Wahlberg, Rosario Dawson, Dave Stewart, and music by Annie Lennox and many many others are all in ‘The Invocation’. The event was The Beverly Hills Film, TV, and New Media Festival and the cast of  ‘The Invocation’ was awarded a Humanitarian Award. Here is a clip of Sharon Stone’s speech that night ( I am on the far left side):

I wore a custom-made (by Lillia) 1950’s-style toile dress (it was upholstery fabric, so it was a little heavy) with a bow (can’t not wear a bow- I’ve tried- doesn’t seem to happen). My necklace was Vivienne Westwood, gloves by Arden B. and my shoes were satin Chanel ballet heels from the spring 2001 collection and the ballet handbag is something I made and can be purchased here. My phone, lipstick, a piece of chocolate, some cash and a credit card fit well in the handbag- that’s it.

For the second night, I wore a flapper-style dress I made ages ago with feather, lace and bead detail. I was feeling a little Boardwalk Empire. I have to say this dress is pretty comfy because the fabric is stretchy cotton. I had just had a delicious meal of half rack of ribs, fries, coleslaw, soda, and a slice of ice cream pie before the event, so it was nice to not have to loosen my belt…my dress just s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d. Love that. You can buy one here on my Etsy.

I did my hair and make up for both events and used Puppycatmeow’s rosettes and braid extension found here. All styling was by moi.

~Today, I turn 29 years old for the 4th time. I’m gonna stuff my face with cupcakes, candies and tea! Yay!!~

Shoe designer Benoit Méléard has worked with Alexander McQueen, Jeremy Scott and Helmut Lang in the past. Next month, he will be releasing a line shoes fit for that any drag queen or working geisha. No. Only two of his shoes from the collection look like that. The rest are pretty much normal, except for a strangely placed strap or two- which reminds me of the time wear I had to use medical tape found in my car’s first aid kit to save a broken sole. It was white tape, so it looked so odd on one pair of shoe, so I had to put it on the other shoe to make it look uniform. Mending things the ghetto way is almost second nature to me. Take for example the time the handle of my purse broke and I used a paperclip to refasten it- (it broke again moments later). Just call me the MacGruber of Fashion.

Anywho, those wood circle heels could totally double as chopping boards…Choppin’ brocc-o-li!

Designer Kobi Levi came up with these outrageous shoes guaranteed to cause mass WTF looks on the street. So, if you’re wearing one of these pairs of shoes on the street and you hear a loud crash, pat yourself on the back for causing an accident. Anyway, I have to say these are super creative, especially the decapitated blow-up doll shoes in the second photo. I think I would actually wear the bubble gum heels. The dog shoes are out of the question just out of respect for Mr. Marmar and his posse. And the double boot must look freaky on. Reminds me of the cover of that Philip Starck book with the head on backwards on his own body. Freaky!
