The Material Boy #212
D&G Natural Snakeskin Driving Shoe
Beyond my passion and love for bags...shoes, belts, jewellery and all other objects of 'vanity' are also part of my secondary obsession. I would have to say shoes come in second in terms of ranking. So here I am again, with my new shoe lust for Spring Summer 2009. Exotics, exotics, exotics! Snakeskin, ostrich, crocodile...you name it, I usually like it. I know animal enthusiasts will 'stone' me for contributing to the extinction and depletion of animal species, not to mention cruelty, but luxurious skins have been an object of desire since ages passed. So pardon me here a bit, I will always love animals, even extending beyond their 'graves':-P (Oops, I see a rotten egg flying my way.)
Back to the shoe, this pair of gorgeous D&G Natural Snakeskin Driving Shoe has a classic style, in a pleasing colour and texture of snake scales that do not erect goosebumps. In fact, it is beautiful and perfect to wear in the upcoming summer days. It induces a rich playboy look, lounging by the pools of Chateau Marmont and sipping margaritas under warm LA sun. There is some bling to the shoe that comes from the nickel hardware adorning the top. No huge D&G logos...but understated elegance, with an edge!
Beautiful shoes are hard to resist. Anyone shares my passion?:-P
