Kiss My… Shoes?!? – Saruta-ma pe… Pantofi?!?

Acum doua saptamani, pe cand imi cautam niste sandale pentru o nunta la care merg in august (si mi le-am luat pe astea) am dat de aceste “buzate”:

EN: Two weeks ago, while I was searching for the perfect pair of tan sandals for a wedding I’m going to in August (and I got these), I came across these lippy beauties:

paul and betty pretty lips sandalsPaul & Betty “Pretty Lips” Nude Stiletto Sandals – 299€ at Sarenza, here;
Sandale cu buze, marca Paul & Betty – 299€ (aprox. 1350 ron) la Sarenza, aici.

Exista si o varianta mai subtila, sa zicem, cu o singura pereche de buze – si la reducere!:
EN: There’s also a more… “subtle”, shall we say, version with a single pair of lips – and it’s on sale too!:

Pantofi cu buze, marca Paul & Betty – 135€ (aprox. 607 ron) la Sarenza, aici.

Desi nu sunt chiar o experta in domeniul incaltamintei mai ciudatele, stiu ca pantofii cu buze nu sunt o idee noua si cred ca o versiune mai cunoscuta este cea a lui Charlotte Olympia (creatoarea faimosilor si des copiatilor balerini si pantofi pisica) – “Kiss Me Dolores”:

EN: Even though I’m not exactly an expert on quirky footwear, I do know that shoes with lips are not a new idea and I think the better known version is Charlotte Olympia’s (she’s the one with the famous and much-copied mouse flats) – “Kiss Me Dolores”:

charlotte olympia kiss me dolores lips shoesCharlotte Olympia “Kiss Me Dolores” Nude/ Red Lips Shoes – out of stock at the moment in this colourway, but still available in white/ red here – where they cost 680£ (Gulp!) and are described as potential bridal shoes.

Pantofi cu buze Charlotte Olympia – “Kiss Me Dolores” – momentan nu se mai gasesc pe bej, ci doar pe alb, aici, unde costa… 680£ (si sunt recomandati ca pantofi de mireasa).

Kitsch sau tocmai cat trebuie de amuzanti? Mie imi plac, mai ales cei Charlotte Olympia (si vreau sa cred ca “Dolores” are legatura cu Lolita aka Dolores Haze) – pentru ca ceilalti parca prea par de jucarie/ plastic – insa, pana nu devin o milioanara excentrica (any day now :)!), nu planuiesc sa-mi cumpar pantofi cu buze de o suta sau cateva sute de euro – dar nici nu m-as supara sa-i primesc cadou!

EN: Kitsch or just the right amount of fun? I for one like them, especially Charlotte Olympia’s version (and I like to think “Dolores” refers to Lolita aka Dolores Haze) – because the other ones look a little bit too much like plastic toy shoes to me – but until I become an eccentric millionaire (any day now, just wait and see :)), I’m not in such a hurry to buy shoes with lips that cost a hundred or a few hundred euros. However I really wouldn’t mind receiving them as a gift :).

In caz ca va plac si voua, ba chiar tocmai v-ati dat seama ca viata e doar o insiruire monotona de zile fara niste pantofi cu buze, dar cei de mai sus vi se par totusi prea scumpi (desi nu stiu de ce ati avea o asemenea parere :)), am gasit si o pereche la un pret mai acatarii (desi tot prea scumpi dupa parerea mea avand in vedere ca sunt din rafie sau ceva asemanator):

EN: In case you’ve just realized that your life wouldn’t be complete without shoes with lips, but are less than eager to spend a month’s worth of rent on them (whyever not?!?), I’ve managed to track down a more affordable version as well (although I still think they’re too expensive considering they’re made of raffia or something similar):

Shellys Dolly Face lips eyelashes ballerina balet flatsShelly’s “Dolly” Ballet Flats with embroidered face (complete with lips and eyelashes) – 54,99£ at New Look, here;
Balerini cu buze si gene (practic cu “fatza”) – 54,99£ (aprox. 290 ron) la New Look, aici.

Am gasit si melodia perfecta pentru tema de azi :)

EN: I have the perfect theme song to end today’s post :)
