I’ve been admiring Jeffrey Campbell’s LITA’s for a long-long time – I think the chunky heel and killer platform should look absolutely ridiculous (and they do on the shelf), but wearing them, especially paired with a feminine little skirt or dress – ladies, I’m telling you, it’s magic! I think of all the copies out there what I think of red-soled shoes that aren’t Louboutins* – if you can’t get the real deal, you don’t need to wear it at all. Which was what I thought I wouldn’t be doing in this case. Jeffrey Campbells are no Louboutins, but they still cost a small fortune and I was sure I’d never get a pair… until I unwrapped a present on Christmas Eve – H had remembered I mentioned these once. Can you believe it? My sweet man who can’t even remember which drawer is his or where the dirty socks go – he remembered I wanted a pair of JC shoes! And getting them was no walk in the park, no Swedish web shops but Bubbleroom were willing to ship to Estonia. So here they are, my first (dare I hope that it’s not the last?) pair of JC’s, and I LOVE them! Mine are made of black distressed leather with a 5” (12.7cm) heel – everyone who owns a pair of LITA’s always says they’re the most comfortable heels in the world… I wasn’t sure I could believe it until I wore mine. They’re right, it’s like rocking a pair of sneakers!
The shoebox they come in – isn’t it pretty?
“Rest your paws and stay awhile – Personal ads for cats by Jeffrey Catbell”. The bottom of the box includes cute “personal ads” by six different cats. I really think a small detail like that is a nice little touch!
* I have to admit I don’t always practice what I preach – I once ordered a pair of gorgeous nude shoes on eBay and they turned out to have red soles. I think it’s ridiculous, but I can’t decide to not wear shoes I’ve already spent money on at all just because of my stuck up principals. That’d be even more ridiculous!
