Happy day! My new Jeffrey Campbell boots arrived in the mail. They are Jeffrey Campbell 'Mattie' ankle boots, and like all Jeffrey Campbells, they are really comfortable. A fashion website that I really like (but never buy from because it's so expensive) was having a sale for select styles of shoes. Some of the styles included... Jeffrey Campbell! Jeffrey Campbell is my favourite shoe designer. The styles are so clunky and weird, and inspired by things that are quite inspiring to me. Along with that, as mentioned, his shoes are among the most comfortable. It would be amazing to be a shoe designer. Shoes are fascinating glimpses into a person's personality, and it would be interesting to be someone who helps decide that.
The shoes that I would really like to own are the Jeffrey Campbell Siglins. They're inspired by Wednesday Addams, and they're described as being a love child between the height of a creeper and the shape of a Doc Marten. Good combination, in my opinion.
They also come in a houndstooth design. I'm most fond of the velvet and the patent leather. They're quite something, aren't they? Seriously, Jeffrey Campbell is amazing. I'm a huge fan of my Litas, and my new Mattie boots are going to be a happy contribution to my shoe collection.
In other news, check out my makeup/photo project from today.
It is inspired by the Salem witch trials. I've been really inspired by historical conceptions of witch craft, and how it plays into classical art. It's so fascinating... so violent. I'd like to do more art work surrounding the hysteria surrounding witch craft, ad hysteria in general. And thus, I do make up and photograph pairings that look like this.
