The Structural Heel

Sometimes they are a geometric phenomenon. I went in search of interesting geometric heels in a range of extremity. You've probably seen the Alexander McQueen collection, but if not, you should check out this article from the Huffington Post For your viewing pleasure:

My inspiration for this post is this pair of 1980s Italian-made Walter Steiger heels avaialable in my Etsy shop. I naturally turned to Etsy for more inspiration.

I found these beauties at Miscusi. These heels are wonderful, and look like they would be so comfortable to wear! Miscus, I am with you: purple heels are awesome. However, the purpose of this post was to entertain the idea of shoes that I would an could never wear, for reasons of balance or budget. exactly does this work?!

On a very important related note, RIP, Alexander McQueen. You will be remembered for you contradictions.... I mean, contributions, to beauty and fashion.

Navigating social media advertisements for my shop have a little overwhelmed lately. I've been slowly working out what sites I can link with others, in order to kill two proverbial birds with one cyberspace stone.

Paired with the extreme tumult that my home has been experience lately, I have been feeling like I have bitten off more than I can chew. However, in true BirdsChasingBugs style, this Phoenix is ready to rise from the ashes and plaster dust. To celebrate the rising, here's a photo of the bathroom progress. 2 of 3 major fixtures are now functional! Visit my facebook page to see the full photoreel.
