they deserve a nobel prize

Dang! I have not felt this way about a FLORAL in a while, guys. Or a wedge.
Fellow blogger Cathy emailed me the link to the Etsy store Woland and Moon and if you ask my friend EB, a pinata with whom I was skyping with at the time, he will tell you that I did indeed gasp when I opened the link.
Total Harajuku potential, super TALL. And prints like the plastic tablecloths your aunt in Miami always uses. And prints like those on tshirts of my sister's friends when they were in about 7th grade and also sporting butterfly hairclips and bandanas. And handmade, which is even more special (though frankly I would never give these away if I had the talent to make them.)
They sort of dance around that line between good and weird and feel slightly awkward, in a good way. I love it when one part of an outfit sets the whole thing a bit off...
omg
I can't afford them so someone else buy them so I'm not tempted.
See you in my dreams, shoesies.

They are interesting, but disgusting. I hate to love them, because generally they are ugly, but I love them because they are different. I love post of the patterns, and thos sandle boots - LOL.

Hello Tavi.
I love your blog. You're awesome. I greatly admire you, for your age and you understand a lot about fashion.
Well I'm always seeing your updates and see that many people here in Brazil is talking very highly of you.
I wish you authorize me to do your blog in Portuguese version.
With all the rights to you. Of course.
I thank you.
Kisses

Emma said...

Those shoes are amazing!
I love the pair on the very bottom right :) that pair amazes me. it's like a boot and a clog combined. a clot?

rose said...

Greetings from L.A. Tavi!
The boots are the bomb!

Some of these are gorgeous. Off to see if I can afford them (doubtful).

fashion westie said...

They're like cats with no hair or oversized bottom jawed dogs...a little strange to look at and you wonder if they'll bite if you pat them...but you like em anyway.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

According to my taste ( which is veryyy special ) only the bottom right 's one and the one just above are very " fashion "....

As for the rest....NOOOOOOOOO !!!!

HELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPP !!

Still love me ? ^^

Katie said...

Not really my thing but in terms of appreciation of the work that goes into them all I can think is WOW! Also the first boots are just pretty amazing.

embebe said...

I LOVE the boot at the bottom!!

Amanda said...

woah man woah!! you made my night.

CoocooforCoco said...

WOWZERS. See, here's an example of fashion that I would never wear, but I can appreciate as an art. These are wonderful. I hope I see some blogger out there (who is more stylish...and more rich than me) rocking these.

Isabel said...

Oh man, these are wicked! So not my thing, but I think you would look rad in that first pair of purple/floral shoes.

Garden of Crispin said...

I like the purple ones. Will totally rock the floral pattern boots with the purple lace shoe string and like the grass green floral print heel boots.

Erina said...

wow, it's really impressive that these are all handmade!! i love the lace up boots at the top and ones on the bottom left. those are probably the one's i would chose, but i could imagine the others looking good on some people with the right styling, especially the bottom right... thanks for sharing, tavi! you're awesome!

Erina said...

also, i definitely see the harajuku potential in some of them!!

WendyB said...

I'm also a fan of the boot on the bottom left, like a lot of other people here!

Kizzy said...

Awww man, they're spectacular and magical! The first boots at the top are delicious! What a refreshing alternative to all the studs and cages you see on everyone's feet these days. Etsy's the greatest, I wish the website had some underground warehouse with all the special stuff people sell on there and I could just spend all night strolling through it like it's the fleamarket.
If you love flowers though, you should check these out, they were new today on the Forever21 website:

yuck they look so uncomfortable and gross and look like something nichole337 would save up for or something.

I like the flower prints, but not on a shoe :)

I LOVE THEM TOO, NICE POST; IT'S SO FUNNY BUT STYLISH SHOES!

Allegra said...

Susie Bubble just got that clarissa explains it all nineties up a few days ago. These are too much. OVER THE EDGE

Kamicha said...

Wow, I actually developed a strong affection to last pair in nanoseconds. Price is bit steep for me too, otherwise there would have already been that faint squeek from PayPal happening.

But the more I look at them the more I appreciate the awkward clumpiness of almost all of them, they would provide great edge to styling.

Pashupati said...

I love them!

Dominika said...

they're amazing,
they do deserve a prize! <3

Ollie Crafoord said...

Thanks for posting this!
I may end up buying a pair. :O

Marlena said...

Wow... They're so fuuny and amazing.

stylespotterfashionblogger said...

I love the bottom right pair, for some reason Marc Jacobs came into my head when I saw them....? I could see them being worn with A Marc by Marc all in one, and the Marc by Marc bow around the head! I'm not so keen on some of the others for myself but I think you could rock them. They remind me of some Lulu Guinness ones I once saw in TK Maxx. Whoever made these is very talented. lets hope you have a fan who wants to treat you to a pair for Christmas.

vickileestyle said...

they are beautiful!

mila said...

They do deserve a Nobel Prize!!!! I like the purple ones the best.

Chloë said...

the florals on the bottom right are the prettiest, but if you ask me they are all quite ghastly!

FND said...

I like the blue based, floral one at the bottom, and the purple laced shiny beige one on top. Styled properly, some of these could loook major but as interestingly nostalgic the prints are, the designs sometimes made it look a little tacky. But ya know, it's all in the stylin I guess.

Caitlin said...

you know something? I kind of miss wearing butterfly hair clips with little wings on springs that fluttered, and bandanas.

Shopper said...

Amazing! I could fight for first shoes, because "Ugly is new pretty".

Michele said...

I think most of em are really ugly, the first one you posted looks decent though. If you're interested, I did a little post on my blog on some good movies that I watched recently. (This is not a way for you, and others to go see my blog), but I thought you might like it. I did a post on 'American Splendor', 'Welcome to the Dollhouse' and 'Art School Confidential'. A little review if you will.

Ciaociao!

Sammi said...

Wow, those shoes are A-MAZING

madalena x. said...

Rea said...

Holy moley. The clogs with the neon pink strap,and those last boots... yum yum.
I think there's something to be said about fashion that even your grandmother would compliment you on.

Maria José said...

Theya re so funny and original. I like them but I wouldn't buy them for me, still I want to see you with a pair of these shoes.

Ane Marte said...

Those are totally awesome. The floral pattern with the soft ribbon lace.... Or the rough details like old metal... I totally want some of these for xmas, even if I have nothing to wear it with.

Totalt elskverdig, ikke sant?

The last pair, the floral boots, I actually saw in black on their website. And now I'm sort of lusting over them. The structure is just too unique! I'll be thinking of these shoes in my dreams tonight, I'm sure..

I wear a size 11 shoe, so I would NEVER want to attract this much attention to my feet! These shoes are for little feet... or maybe drag queens.
