Vintage Shoes: Collecting and Wearing Twentieth-Century Designer Footwear
by Caroline Cox
About 25% of the shoes in there made me think "thank god I didn't live then", about 25% made me almost have a heart attack and die because I was so in love, and then there were a few things in the book that were just SO INSANE/amazing! Like the "Shoes to Eat" collection by Tokio Kumagai.
The meat one (above) was the only image I could find on the internet, but the collection was definitely really cool, and if you are in a book store I would suggest checking it out.
Within the museum I was excited to (finally) see Willie Cole's sculpture "Shine":
OK I am obviously obsessed with footwear but this piece is just really amazing when taken into the context of his work and I just find it very visually appealing. And while we are on the subject of shoes, there are a few FLUORESCENT Christian Louboutin's out right now that I am honestly so obsesssssed with.
Christian Louboutin C'est Moi shoe boots, $825
Christian Louboutin Privatita platform slingbacks, $795
Oh and I stumbled across this AMAZING picture that may or may not be the story of my life...
I REALLY need to make my Christmas/birthday ~wish list~. Really.
