Watch: Spring and Shoes

Leandra Medine | May 7, 2012
Two videos, five days: do you feel nourished or cursed by the wrath of my voice? I guess this one is a bit more chatty, less Lean del Ra though the dance moves don’t differ all that much give a moon walk or two, take a sexual interaction between wood floors and myself. Regardless, here’s your Monday pick-me-up, or put-you-down depending on how you feel about me, footwear and high waist pants.
Video by Aram Bedrossian, words by ‘smith Medine (that’s me,) and all shoes compliments of mytheresa. Footwear includes Gucci, Charlotte Olympia, Chloe, Givenchy, Giambattista Valli, Stella McCartney, Jimmy Choo. Fupa by my pants, uncomfortable silences between words compliments of the coffee I did not consume that morning. And there you have it: Shoesday in the form of video. The important thing to take away, if you’re going to take away anything is that I really meant what I said, said what I meant. If you are in fact looking to spruce up your ankles, narrow the fat options to three categories. The fun flat, to unleash your inner jungle animal, or comfort station. The mid-heel because it adds height to your legs without puncturing your feet and the crazy heel because every lady deserves the opportunity to be frivolous now and again. Just don’t buy all three. That’s a lot of eggs for one basket if egg were code for trendy shoe and basket for season. Or don’t, whatever, it’s your life. I can’t tell you how to live it, just suggest you don’t shave your armpits along the way.

    I just love your blog and your personality, you are a true inspiration! And mysteresa is great. I purchased a pair of Charlotte Olympias there and they delivered those babies in a sec. Great, now I have to check their website again and rape my creditcard a bit more…

  • matchalattewardrobe

    I'm so skeptical about mid-heels. Looked for raffia wedges for a while before finding a great pair though (pair that turned out to be not man repelling at all though).
