I think I might have lost it . . .

I just bought these Vivienne Westwood shoes from Gilt Groupe:

Aesthetically, they're kind of sweet.  I dig the contrast between the hot three-inch heel and the demure, lady-like bow.

But they are made out of RUBBER.

I know.  It horrifies me too.

I mean, are they cheap and fugly like an amateur dominatrix?  Or are they a little provocative, a little campy, like Dita or GaGa?

Or do they appeal to me because of pure nostalgia for the jelly shoes of my youth?

Yikes.  What did I just do?

I have the pair with the hearts on front and they look and fit great! Lots of fun to wear! They look great with skinny jeans. I also just ordered a pair of Melissa flats from the same sale. Can't wait!

Whew. Ok, I'm so glad you said this. Are they comfortable? And stable?

I've got some in flats and love them! They don't have the heels but are super comfortable, nothing like the childhood ones. Let us know how your's are though.

I think they are kind of awesome. Now I want some.
