Very cute ... so wish I could work this look. Kinda frightening when you're 6ft tall though ! booo hoo !

Melanie's Randomness said...

Oh that's gotta be a cool exhibit!!! I'm going to look into going! From Mary Jane's to socks with stilletos. intersting!

Gigi said...

I definitely could NOT rock this look! lol

Savvy Gal said...

There are so cute to look at but a bit dangerous for a woman of my age.:)

Caroline said...

Love those sandals....if I could only pull off that look!

Claire Kiefer said...

Dying over those rope shoes in the middle--those are GORGEOUS! I want some pronto!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh, I'd love to, if only... my legs wouldn't look like stumps in socks, I could learn how to walk in high heels & socks, my legs weren't freezing... Happy Wednesday, Lenore!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I would consider rocking the look in a warmer climate (c'mon socks in Singapore - it's way too hot for that!)

Haute World said...

I don't mind the look, but I personally think it's a little too girly for me. I'd do this with tights and closed-toe heels though!

Jan said...

Well I wasn't planning on breaking my neck today ... so No
:) x

Laura Trevey said...

... if I could walk without falling down, I would sport that cool look :)

Sal said...

I would! I have yet to find the perfect socks for it, though ...

sarahowens said...

If I could I would, believe that! I love this!

Saving Capulet said...

ooh my mom used to rave about those laced and ruffled socks and high heeled shoes! <3 i would love to try this!

The Zhush said...

To say this look would not be for me, would be an understatement! NEVER. Cute on the models, however does not translate AT all!

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

Thank you everyone!
Whatever it is, don't fall on those high heels okie!

xo*

Sam said...

I have a terrible confession: I love the socks and sandals look! I think these sky high heels are divine with socks! However, I don't wear heels myself very often - I'm too comfort driven but as a look - fab!

Liz said...

you know i would.

thanks for the linkback hun.

I LOVE this socks-heels combo from Burberry. I'm still totally searching for the perfect low-cost alternatives to achieve the look!

Tracie said...

Darn! I missed this one when I was in NYC. Too early.

♫♥Oana Roxana♥♫ said...

Love them both! The past and the present...

The Burberry heels? Of course, I'd love to! I think they're fabulous. So trendy!
