overpriced and ugly


doing another ebay hunt for those fabbled high heeled rain boots i came across some stunningly ugly and incredibly priced DOLCE & GABBANA boots which apparently sell for $895!!! they are truely hidious. you'll need to click on the image to see them full size in all there horridness.

closer to what i wanted but with still a stupid price tag due to their desingner logo is the Channel knee high rain boots at $499.99


which are kinda going in the right direction but heels are way to low given that i'm pretty well in my 4's Melissa's now all the time and starting to wear 5's regularly again.

one person who did get it right a couple seasons back (though the heel i want is at least 4's) was marc jacobs who is now doing these super cute little jelly flats. would love a pair but i feel my feet will always been arched from now on.one really good resource i found is a german site that has a huge collection of rain boots or 'wellies' as the brits call them is this site which i think is run from a shoe shop.

if you want to see more 'oh god those are horrific and how much are they???' shoes and boot then do pop over to the fashion police site for their good and bads.

thankfully they're making a stand agains croc shoes too by declaring war on them here. finally a war i can get behind...

meanwhile for more anti-crocness then look at Manolo shoe blogs entry.

That DOLCE & GABBANA boots are not ugly, they are UGLY.
And about overpriced stuff, as I was telling my sister today, I´m never going to pay a lot for advertise. But there are people who do it...

What a good catch ... the fashion police. Amazing how some crap makes it to the market.

The boots look like something Japanese fishermen wear. Just picture them in a bright yellow or orange.

just 'cos you have money doesn't mean you have any sense of taste.

i mean what else are those super glossy fashion magazines for if not to tell you what to wear? meanwhile the stylists and writers are combing the streets and the club (maybe even blogs?) for the next big thing they remake and sell for loads of $$$.

I saw some rubber boots and shoes (ugly) at DSW this past weekend. Can't recall the brand.
