Balenciaga Obsession

I obsessed and obsessed and prayed that they would be in my price range. I decided that even if they weren’t, I’d tip off the black market organ people and in exchange for a small finder’s fee, I would give up a kidney. 
Alas, they were over $3,000. NOT in my price range. Not even in my price orbit. 
I took my frustrations to paper and came up with this. My version of the shoes I covet. Slightly girlier than Ghesquiere’s versions. Pink and a pop of leopard (Betsey would be proud) and voila! I’m redesigning a masterpiece! Take that!! 
I won’t actually have them made but I feel better now that I’ve purged my frustration into a drawing ;)
The originals…

So beautiful it hurts.

    Exactly what do you smoke to fool yourself into thinking these atrocities actually look good?

    Girl I so understand. When I first saw these babies (maybe on SeaofShoes?) I went crazy for them.

    They’re like little jigsaw puzzles on your feet that scream, “Oh yeah? What now?!”

    EXACTLY what I was thinking. The things fashion does to us. Le sigh. Hahaha. :)

    I have been obsessed with this Balenciaga shoe as well since I saw it on style.com last runway season! Sadly it is out of my price range as well…whose price range is it actually even in!?! (Besides celebrities who get things for free) These shoes are sick, but I actually love your version more than the original. Leopard and Pink-my two favorites! Love seeing your drawings, you are so talented! If you ever get your version made please think of me- would love a pair :)
