Jean Flops – Fashion That Makes Us Sad !

Published November 10, 2012 by lalarukh36

 

Though the recent spate of in-your-face jeans trends has made us re-think our standards about denim (floral jeans? whiskers? jeans shirts with jeans pants, a la the cowboy tuxedo ? We’re in!), every women has to draw the line somewhere. And that line is the Jean Sandal Boot. Made from vintage blue jeans by Israeli Etsy designer DaniKshoes, this unimaginably odd footwear is handmade, one-of-a-kind, and sports four useable pockets. On its website, DaniKShoes touts the Jean Sandal Boot as “fun that never goes unnoticed!” and is selling them for $140 a pop.

All jokes aside, I am wondering how one could possibly style these. Maybe with a pair of matching jeans tucked in to them? (A sort of denim version of the movie “Inception”–you could have jeans within jeans!) What we really want to know is how you get them on: Fingers crossed it’s a zipper fly—we can’t imagine buttons would be easy to work at ankle-level (though they might make the fun never go unnoticed).

If these boots aren’t exactly your style, fear not—the Etsy shop that sells them makes a wide variety of jean-flops, each more horrific than the next. At $140, we’ll save our money for some less fashionably traumatic shoes. Like Crocs, or rollerskates with missing wheels.

The It-Bag (as they call it)  is the ultimate 21st- century object of desire, not just for supermodels and celebutantes, but for working women from all walks of life.  These days women are more prepared to spend on a handbag particularly ones with BIG fancy brand names like Chanel, Coach, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada and Hermes. They shop for fashion bags as frequently as they eat, worry about the delay of the new arrivals and so on.

But why do we find bags so desirable? It’s partly because they’ve become a unique outward statement of a woman’s status, fashion savvy and earning power – and the rising popularity of handbags over the past 100 years has followed the increasing social independence of their owners.

Based on an Article in U.K. Two hundred years ago, a woman’s role was largely domestic and she would keep her belongings in a purse tucked into the folds of her clothes. Read the rest of this entry →
