I promised there were more heels coming up, et voila! As a graduation present to myself I caved into temptation and, after a bit of internet searching, I found the shoes of my dreams. At first I didn’t want to admit it, but I was really smitten with Jeffrey Campbell’s Litas. Especially the ones covered with cat tapestry fabric. Because I love heels and I love cats. It’s as simple as that. But when I finally decided to go for it, after getting over the fear that I had lost all common sense, I found they were sold out almost everywhere. So, I was a little dubious of ordering them a from a shoe store I found after an incredibly precise Google search of “Jeffrey Campbell Lita Cat Tapestry,” but Eilatan Shoes, in California, had them (granted only in size 8.5, my size!) and they arrived within a few days. So here I am, on the streets of DUMBO, with my the cat platforms of my dreams. Tell me, does having a master’s degree and wearing platform heels with cats on them cancel each other out in terms of being taken seriously? I certainly hope not.
Two footnotes: I figured that pairing my Lita’s with plain denim and black would make wearing them seem less crazy. On Friday I picked up this Charlotte Ronson top at a sample sale at Angel Street Thrift Shop for $20. Not bad, eh?
Also, a question was posed to me: Are Lita’s really as comfortable as everyone claims? Answer: Yes. Take it from a New Yorker of shorter stature who rides the subway and walks fast with a long stride. I’m smitten. I want a pair in every color and pattern. Anyone out there want to be my shoe benefactor?
