Promise you won't laugh?

This is all purely hypothetical, of course.

Let's pretend a woman is 5'2" and is the super-cute sort of gal.

And let's just say one of her favorite shoemakers made a pair of shoes with robot-fabric lining the shoe and a robot on the sole. And let's just say that pair of shoes was a wee bit nutty looking with stripes on the platform heel and cherries on the front.

This really super-cute woman (the one we're all just making up in our minds) could get away with these shoes, right? I mean, like, as in going-out-in-public-with-a-straight-face getting-away-with-these-shoes, right?

But then there's the metallic basket-weave ones which also have the robot lining and sole. Hmmm...

What a dilemma. I will have--- er, that is to say, she will have to choose. *vexation*

Midmorning addendum:

Okay. Cooler heads prevail. Was still a little clouded with sleep and not thinking clearly earlier. Our cute fantasy lady drives her imaginary car a lot, and I'm thinking those felt stripes would get awfully dirty on her lead-foot side. The bronze/gold, however, would surely be more dirt-resistant.

Don't worry about me yet. Well, not any more than you already do.

I mean, her-- don't worry about her, yet. ;)

Just don't wear them in Africa, or the zebras will be trying to mate with you!


alan said...

I'm sorry, I laughed.

Can you forgive me?

I bet you can carry them off. You are made of 100% cute.

Peter - Goodness sakes, Peter! Be assured I'll keep well clear of zebras whether in these shoes or not! :P

alan - you know, when I wrote "promise you won't laugh?" I had already forgiven you, but that 100% cute comment got you lots of goodwill credits in the phlegmbank! ;)

those are... shall we say, interesting...LOL Cherries NO!!!

phlegmfatale said...

Old NFO - Yeah, they're ridiculous. I still think they are cute. :P

Buy both pairs...problem solved!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Is it wrong that I picture the wearer in large black mouse ears?

phlegmfatale said...

Vinogirl - see the next comment

Barbara - that did it: you just ruined those shoes for me! *LOL*

If you have the balls to wear them, go for it! They epitomize the whimsy about you that's so charming.

Easy solution to the quandry. Keep a pair of slip on flats in the car for driving. Quickly change when entering or exiting the vehicle. Problemo es no problemo. Enjoy both pair.

You or her could definitely carry both of these fabulous pairs of shoes off with no problem! However, I agree with your or her assessment of going with#2! That is if you or she simply can't afford BOTH!!! Will tell you that I found a pair of Betsy Johnson peep toe 5" black pumps with cherry motif for $40.00 at a cool thrift store in Houston last month in MY size! But alas, it was a skinny model size 10, not a woman in the real world size 10! Yes, I cried.

Oh honey! I just clicked on the link for the metallics and they are on SALE!!! Buy, buy, buy! I mean, tell your friend!

breda said...

I like the bronze ones a lot. And the robots are a definite plus.

Buck said...

I'm thinking the pink ones would go over BIG at a lysergic acid diethylamide users reunion. {insert big ol' grin, here}

HollyB said...

Oh, I clicked on the link to Zappos and I really Liked the Crinkle Black Patent version.

TOTWTYTR said...

Well, it all depends. Are you talking about the shoes with an ensemble or just the shoes? As in JUST THE SHOES?

Inquiring minds want to know. ;)

phlegmfatale said...

Christina - aw, shucks, honey - that was a really sweet thing you said. :)

Myron - clever ideer!

Steff - I think IF (a BIG if) I buy one pair, it'll be the bronze/gold, but it's going to remain to be seen. I have a couple pets to nooder and a house to buy... other goals. If I do it, it'll be in a couple weeks. I've got to keep my money goals on track.

Breda - I'm LOVING the robots. they come in a snazzy robot box, too. Sweet. If I buy them, bronze will be the way to go

Buck - well, I won't have call to go to one of those reunions, and I'd hate to give someone a flashback

HollyB - I like that, but I've got so many black shoes already

TOTWTYTR - uh, ah, er, *blush* *sputter* Um.
