fashion friday: omelle shoes

when daily candy sent out their (daily) e-mail the other day, they featured these shoes by omelle... i looked, my jaw dropped and i mumbled something like "oh, well...hello there", to no one in particular, just myself. for the first time in a while i was taken back by a shoe designer. now, let's admit you are not wearing these to go pick up groceries, but for that occasion when you just have to be different, feel sexy, and you truly want to turn heads, these i'm thinking would be the shoes for such occasions.











this is what omelle has to say:
"it started with a spark, something akin to the perfect pair of boots. amidst illustrations, scrap fabrics and inspiration boards at LA's prestigious fashion institute of design and merchandising, two shoe-obsessed designers discovered a common interest—luxury footwear with a distinct and imaginative voice. Combining a singular vision with years of experience, cherise angelle and nicole lafave have created a partnership dedicated to serving the sophisticated shopper, a lady who not only speaks in style but continually lives in it.

with a background rich in style, business and design—angelle has worked in luxury product placement, while lafave has honed her talents in graphic and knitwear design, working as an art director and self-employed designer—each woman offers a unique and varied background which helps to guide their direction. while angelle appeals to the high-end sophisticate with a penchant for pumps and pearls, lafave draws from her artistic roots, setting a new pace in fashion. when mixed and melded, the outcome is omelle, or (ähm' elle), a new voice and vision within the luxury footwear industry." enjoy your fashion "shoe" friday! happy, happy weekend everyone :) what are you up to? busy or relaxing? anyway, hoping yours is fun.
