Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m not only In Love. I’m In Lust.
Purple velvet jeweled heels, to be exact, from the incomparable Dolce & Gabbana. Flipping through Gotham magazine, it was lust at first sight. I mean, just look at this photo. How can you not…Want…Those? They’re seriously gorgeous, Cinderella worthy.
These shoes are so on my Wish List–and at a smidgen under $3K, they’re going to have to stay there.
Along with the hefty price tag, think of all the “incidental” costs associated with owning them. No way would I walk the NYC streets with these on my feet. The mere thought of dinging that fragile, gilded window of a heel on a curb back has me cringing. Ditto for talking the Subway or hailing a cab. What if there was–gasp–a splash! Nope, it would have to be Uber all the way. Come to think of it, my own coach–I mean car–and driver would be all kinds of better.
What totally impractical item do you covet?
