High, High Heels and Zippers

Here are two fashion topics of late tied into one, really uncomfortable, but kinda cute shoe: industrial, exposed zippers on teeter tottering high-heeled shoes. Crazy, huh? Let's tackle the heels first. Are six or seven inches just too high and toe- pinching to walk in? And what do you think about exposed zippers? Are they cute on bags, but not on the back of dresses? When does fashion stop being forward and just become plain ridiculous? Share!

High, High Heels and Zippers

Super high-heeled Lamb shoes with zippers.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
