We have been promised these shoes FOR EVER. A collaboration between architect, Zaha Hadid and Brazilian shoe label, Melissa. 

They were supposed to be released last year but when I spoke to a Melissa rep she said Zaha was perfecting them... over and over... and over.

They're finally available on the Melissa website in black, purple and silver - but at $365 they're a little pricey... especially if I can't try them on... and I haven't seen them at any of the Melissa stockists in Sydney.

I love the sweeping lines and irregular, asymmetrical forms (in both the shoes and Zaha's buildings...)

I love Melissa shoes - they are so comfortable and they smell like strawberries :)

I have a pair of these in green and a pair in black.

And I have these:

I think I'm going to buy these:

A collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Melissa, they're much more affordable than the Zaha's at $185. Should I?

...I ♥ RICK...

I am still in love with these Rick Owens boots... Driving down Oxford St. in Paddington I swear I caught sight of a pair in a shop window. I definitely have to go confirm, but whatever they were they looked like they belong in my closet.

So it's been a while since I've posted anything... I'm a terrible blogger. I've been super busy helping my boyfriend with a new space he's opening (and which I'll post about later)

My boyfriend got these for me from a fashion show - they're hilarious, not sure how much wear I can get out of them though! Just really cheap shoes with gold chain, zipper and toy basketball stuck on the heel... apparently the stylist had a budget of $30/pair of shoes!

I wore them out the other night to a 90's hip hop night and I've never had so many comments on my shoes - goes to show what you can do on a low budget with a bit of imagination.
