THE CAT AND THE SPARKLING SHOES



You know when you as a little girl couldn't dream of any more wonderful shoes than the red ruby slippers Dorothy had?

Although my own acute carvings for glittering shoes are long gone I did get myself a pair worthy of those Oz-tastic shoes; black velvet heels covered with small sparkly diamonds!(Yeah, yeah, real diamonds). Perfect for burlesque parties and for shows; one can never sparkle too much on stage.
I got these on sale at Halonen.

Olivia Rouge : Joo, ostettiin sieltä meille ryhmiskengät, aika paljon juhlakenkiä löytyy kyllä, josta osa o oiekasti ihan hienoja. Ihme juttu.

Esz : oh, what a great shop; on mouseover one sees the shoes worn! The green shoes reminds me of coco nuts! Ina good way. Tiki party! :D

Hehehe you are so right they do kind of resemble coconuts in a way!

The shop is really fantastic - very fast and cheap shipping even all the way here to Australia.

Beautiful! Both the shoes and the cat, I mean.

Our cat looks JUST LIKE yours, right down to the little white hairs on his chest. Sadly, I do not have shoes just like yours. Those babies are going on the wish list.

Mä olen aidosti tehnyt Haloselta hyviä kenkälöytöjä vuosien varrella! Noi ois niin kuumottavat mut hitsinpitsi kun täs Jumbolla ei oo Halosta :/ Mulla kun on tapana käyttää arkena ihan överikenkiä, esim paljettikorkkareita 10cm koroilla töissä (no kun en käy missään baareissa enkä juhlissa).

Ms Wanda said...

That's such a brilliant photo - your cat is so obliging. Mine will never stay still for two seconds and will never be in a photo (unless I don't want her in a photo of course). I'd watch those shoes though. I think she'll wear them to one of her midnight kitty parties if she gets half the chance.

Love your shoes!
I actually made my own dorothy-shoes last year for a play and I still wear them from time to time in normal life, because everyone needs to smile, when one sees them.

Steffaree said...

Those shoes are beyond gorgeous! Shiny feet!

Kato Hei said...

hehee, ihan mahtava toi eka kuva missä katti katsoo kenkiä!

Leia said...

REAL DIAMONDS? Wow! Those shoes are to die for!
