Backward Heels?

Marc Jacobs' spring preview show on Monday was an homage to everything backwards, according to the Faded Youth Blog  and attended by several celebrity fashionistas including Victoria Beckham and  Mischa Barton.   Models paraded down the runway in an array of rather unwearable and deconstructed items, including these "backward heels".

Or your feet anyway. [phpbay]crocs, 2[/phpbay] … [Read more...]

Styles may vary by store location, but you can grab these Hassel Collar Bootines online at  (I want the black ones!) This soft faux suede platform bootine tops our list this season … [Read more...]
