Dollop a Daisy

Things I want, probably won't get

Picture 2

Today in things that make me say, woo! — boots made of mesh and daisies, daisies and mesh. Does Ace of Base come to mind for anyone else at the sight of these? How about Mayim Bialik ca. Blossom? Our birthdays are not very far apart. I’m just throwing that out there, but I digress.

When you see white flowers emblazoned across a shoe that features a yellow stiletto heel, you don’t ask questions, you just go where they want to take you. In a series that starts and ends today called, Things I Want, Probably Won’t Get, how does one justify the purchasing of white and yellow booties, care of Manolo Blahnik and priced upward of $1,000?

Easy answer: one doesn’t.

More ambitious answer: one quickly but adeptly learns the art and technique of open heart surgery and in doing so rearranges a couple of other organs, misplacing a kidney, eventually selling it, et voila: residual chump change left over for pizza.

On an unrelated but likely more important note, too: Have you heard of FarmersOnly.com (tag line: city folk just don’t get it)? Who’s up for a social experiment?

        lol. TRAVEL and go and see and eat new experiences. While I’m there and I fall in love with the place, then proceed to buy a little property so I can visit leisurely…hope its BANK lottery that I won. :D

      i’d love to say shop, but guilt would probably make me share first, and make sure my people are comfy and cosy. ;-) shop second, travel more third, buy uber house fourth, invest fifth ( my financial controller may beg to differ)

    Amazing boots.

    Gorgeous but Manolo’s pushing it with the price tag. If I owned them I’d need someone to carry me around. The streets are not paved of gold so these bad boys would never touch the ground.

    Normally I’m pro-floral, but this is not the one. (Kinda 90s-does-the-70s in all the wrong ways.) And for some reason, I just keep thinking Daisy…Fuentes.

    Those boots shall be sent to you and you shall wear them in a way only you could.

  • Josie

    Cute daisies! Haha, but would probably take forever to actually convince myself I should buy them…and accumulate the money.

    definitely just looked up farmersonly.com. my heart was strangely warmed. i like country folk. side note, i really don’t like those shoes. please don’t do it. maybe I’m not up to speed but I’m just not ready to bring daisy print back.

    your title really confuses me! i am from belgium so i speak dutch! Dollop in flemish means crazy about! so i am reading crazy about a daisy! anyway, just to let you know!

      well here in the United States, “you know it makes everything tasty; do a dollop of Daisy.” is a slogan for a the sour cream brand Daisy. Dollop in the phrase meaning a scoop or serving of the sour cream i believe.

  • Courtney Amber

    Agreed. If one was to wear a shoe (a stunning one at that) of that price range you’d be a rather boring girl standing in the corner drinking water!

    We country folk are not such a bad lot. Trust me if you visited my little town, you definitely would not get it. But then I’m not sure I do either and I live here. Those shoes, well they certainly will never fall under the catagory of “yes, they may be expensive but you can wear them with anything and they’ll be in style for years to come.” Maybe, but only if you are a princess and vacation at Cinderella’s country house.

    Pretty but with a huge pricetag

    Wait until they show up on Ebay? or Barney’s sale?

  • http://www.fashionsnag.com/ Fashion Snag

    I’d rather plant some actual daisies, but I can definitely see why you like them. They are a little too wild for me and I own a lot of weird looking shoes. I agree that Blossom would wear them for sure. The price tag just keeps going up and up on these designer shoes too.
