|The pair I wanted more than ANYTHING. Nude, fabulous.|
And then it moved to Candies, the ultimate slide/mule/clog. Being a tween at the time my mother would, on no uncertain terms, allow a pair and I have pined for some version ever since.
Candies, just to refresh your memory - -
In the early 80s someone added furry stuff, which usually looked like a wet dog, but nary a second did my devotion waver.
|I was STILL forbidden to own a pair.|
|I would fall over dead, and would look amazing en route.|
|H E A V E N!|
I have looked and looked and looked for upwards of 20 years for the perfect pair. No one has them just right - heels too brown, too bleached pine like above, brass not silver studs, gold not silver studs, $1200, brown leather, too Hasbeens, heel too low.... you get the picture.
Ta-DAAAAA! The perfect pair!
|Ok, so they're calling them a "mule" - NOT flattering, but, who cares?|
|Wrappy, strappy moto style perfection|
The lesson here, since that's what we started with, is.... When you love something, you love it; it doesn't matter which decade you buy/wear/find/revive it - it's YOU. Trends be damned, dammit. After all, this is 2016 - Candie's was 1978, and and look how long that style has lasted?
