the adventures of yoshi

…because i’m a cheapo

Posted in Shoes Shoes Shoes by yoshi on October 14, 2009

i’ve been on a shoe rampage lately. venturing out to grab all the knock offs i can… well, only the ones that i like of course.

as i mentioned to betseyj today, its as if someone just uncaged the shoe beast in me that lay dormant for almost 2 years… having worked in the skateboarding/streetwear industry during this time – i never really NEEDED to wear heels/wedges/booties. but now that i’m working in soho (amongst beautiful models and fashionistas alike) i almost feel the necessity to keep up with the jones’ – but without leaving a gaping hole in my wallet.

SO. here’s a little break down of what i want and what i’ve already conquered lol (oh yea, i was too lazy to figure out prices, but just know that you’d be saving anywhere from $300 – $600):

Solea Samira Boots:

0749800109-2-solea-samira-black-boots-ankleSTATUS: CONQUERED by Steve Madden “Monett”



Acne Atacoma Wedges:


STATUS: SEMI-CONQUERED by Jeffrey Campbell “99 Zip Wedge”


*but i WILL be waiting for the Jeffrey Campbell “Alexa Wedge” dropping next month



Miu Miu Laced up Booties


STATUS: CONQUERED by H&M (couldn’t find the exact image, but similar to these boots by GUESS)



Burberry Prorsum Boots:


STATUS: yet to be conquered by Jeffrey Campbell’s Poland Lace Up Bootie:



Stella McCartney Preforated Thigh High Boots:


STATUS: CAN be conquered by Jeffrey Campbell (but i think i’ll pass)



Phi Creepers


STATUS: yet to be conquered by Jeffrey Campbell’s Whip 2


and there you have it!

splurge for less on these awesome shoes… but i’ll be the first to admit that my latest purchase has left a rather LARGE chunk of change missing from my bank account, but they were simply a MUST have…. and rest assured, i’ll be sleeping with them on and using them as my house slippers to get my money’s worth. i’ll post them sometime this week lol.
