Today I want to show you the new flats I was talking about a few entries ago. Why do I want to talk about a pair of flats, which are the least interesting kind of shoes in the universe of footwear?
Because, for once, they're brand shoes. To be precise, they're Louis Vuitton.
Don't look at me that way! They were a present from my mom XD I'd never, ever, ever spend that much money for a pair of shoes. Or, at least, for a Louis Vuitton pair of shoes - I spent much more money on those New Rock boots I bought last year :D.
But, to be fair, she asked me if I liked them before buying them for me: a friend of hers, who owns a shop, had shown her these shoes and suggested that I might like them, so she brought them home and asked me if I did.
... God forbid me, I did.
Let me finish! XD
I usually don't like - nay: I usually detest - Louis Vuitton's clothes. I hate its pattern, I hate the colours, I hate the total lack of unicity and I hate that they make you pay so much money for their stuff, which is absolutely not worth it.
Of course, it's my mom's favourite brand. She has a collection of LV bags and wallets and key holders and God knows what else. She's always hoped for me to become a brand-addict like she is. As you can see, things turned out a bitter differently than she wished.
But these ones... these ones were black. And they had little cute bows. And the name of the brand was not all over the shoes, which is something I hate. And they have a leopard print!
You may not know that there are a few things I could never wear, which are:
-excessively washed-out or ripped-out denim;
I don't know. Maybe it's just that alternative fashion is so into leopard right now. Maybe, as it sometimes happens to me when I hate something, I end up wishing to give it a try (it happened to me with Chuck Taylors: at first I couldn't even look at them, and I ended up buying five pairs of them). Or maybe it's because they're black and the leopard print is not tacky at all; plus I've totally jumped on the punk-chic bandwagon this year, and what's more punk-chic than these cuties?
I think they're neat. I just have to find the right outfit for them - I guess it involves hold-ups and minidresses, but I'm not sure. I have to think about it.
Do you like brand clothes? Do you ever wear them together with gothier stuff? How *_*? (I need ideas *_*)
Oh, and - totally unrelated - please look at this thing I found on Tumblr this morning.
"he looks like one of the italian people pushing one of those boats"
And someone else added...
And now, if you'll excuse me, I'll laugh until I run out of breath and die.
