A few days ago, I received an e-mail advisory from Neiman Marcus, revealing that the must-have purchase for the new season is The Statement Shoe.
I believe I have found The Statement Shoe! It’s a fake-vintage red sneaker by Golden Goose, selling for $420. Its statement is “Screw The Economy!” Or maybe “Look, I’m an Idiot!”
Stylebop.com is nice enough to plan out a whole look for this Statement Shoe.
All together, this look will set you back $2,070, which I think is more than fair. If you’re willing to pay 400 bucks for some pre-battered sneakers, what the hell! You might as well spend ten or twenty thousand on the clothes to wear with it.
If I wasn’t so lazy, I could get out my red Converse lowtops from under the bed and wear them with some denim shorts, a nothing cardigan, a lame t-shirt and some necklaces….and then I’d look just as pathetic, for free.
Last month, some fashion magazine had the nerve to suggest: “Shop Your Own Closet!” As if I want any of the crap in my closet. I hate to admit it, but now I see their point. I’ve just saved $2,070!
Maybe tomorrow I’ll go check out my closet and buy one of those leather jackets in there, if I can get a good deal.
