And Get Me a Pair While You're At It!!

Thanks to m'dear Philocrites for sending this along...

From http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1607265,00.html:

"Women do spend $1,069--$246 more than men do--on clothing every year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2004-2005 Consumer Expenditure Survey.
But that's chump change compared with what single men spend on car ownership ($846 more than single women), eating out ($752 more), alcoholic drinks ($280 more) and audiovisual gear ($143 more).
Cutting back on needless spending isn't a bad idea for anyone, but 'renegotiating your credit-card balances or getting a lower cost on your IRA probably saves you a lot more money,' says Christian Weller, an economist at the Center for American Progress. 'That's much more prudent advice to women than saying 'Don't go buying all those Prada shoes.'"

You have PeaceBang's full permission to join her in lusting after these Prada beauties. Because despite Jesus' admonition, darlings, lusting is FREE.

Hooboy. (Hoogirl.)

Call me a heretic, but my first thought was "ugh, those are really monstrous."

Those are the most hideous things I have ever seen. Go to Kmart and buy some silver spray paint if you want fugly shoes like that.

*gasp*
But PeaceBang is like a raccoon! She sees shiny things and her little claws go "ooh ooh, mine, mine!"
LOL!
Those shoes are KICKIN!! KICKIN', do you hear me? Of course I would never wear them, but I would definitely fascinate on them across the room at a cocktail party.

Not for nothing, but those shoes are f-ing gorgeous. I would so totally wear them. Even in my sleep.

But I hate wedges. They look so incomplete, like the airy part hasn't been carved out yet.

those shoes are super-hot, IMHO. i'm sure i would never pay what their price is (though i have only a slight clue of that price - basically out of my price range) but thanks PB for giving me a pair worthy of such lust.

speaking of lustin after expensive shoes, have you ever been to the anthropologie website? homina-homina for all kinds of fun creative and weird shoes.
their clothes are also cute flirty fun for the size 14 & under, mid 20s set. also fairly pricey, but still very drooly.
