Things that creep a monkey out.....Marc Jacobs Shoes

Varment Footwear.
Critter Couture.
Rodent Shoes.
Marc Jacobs-what gives?

I am sorry, but this is just creepy. To my eye, this is a shoe fashioned to look like a mouse. Am I wrong? Is it a guinea pig? That is still a rodent right? Are these supposed to be cute and I just do not get it? Have designers used up all their creativity and now we can expect a trend of rodent inspired designs? I can see it now in the New York Times....

If you do decide to wear these shoes this season, then I must warn you of a few things.

First, if I happen to see you traipsing around in these shoes be warned-- I will laugh and point, then laugh some more. Then, I will probably get on my cell phone and call all my friends and be like "You 'member those shoes I blogged about? Yes, the varment ones? Someone is actually wearing them!!!" Then I will probably ask you if you will let me take a photo of you wearing the shoes, so I can post it here on my blog.... so I can laugh yet some more.

The second thing I feel it is my duty to warn you about is this:

Please for the love of all things holy --WATCH YOUR STEP!

*disclaimer-I love Marc Jacobs, but I cannot let these shoes slip by without a comment--albeit a snarky comment.

Cracking me up!!! The whole rodent on my feet thing? No, I think not. I would pull out my old ropers again (shudder the thought) before wearing a hamster on my feet. Where is the NEW fashion these days? I agree with your previous post about the 80's coming back. My daughter had on a pair of pink converse the other day. I laughed.

I am not that much into shoes, but your post was so funny, I just wanted to let you know that it made me chuckle. By the way, those shoes, I agree, are not very good looking and now it will be impossible for me to see these without staring at them and maybe feel scared about the rodent trend in fashion.

LOLOL on the rodent shoes! Maybe you'd prefer to be black-template-Blogspot from head to toe! Maybe it's just me, but all I could think of was Blogspot when I saw the black ones. For a brief moment I contemplated getting them, just so I could say I was putting on my blogging shoes, or call them my blogclogs, or something :>

Hello doll! ROPERS!!! Oh my gosh, not that is a blast from the past. I have not thought about my ropers for ages. I still have both pair though--still in the Justin box! HA!

Hello Mimi-

Thanks for visiting and thanks for the kind words! You should fear the rodent trend--you should fear it HARD!

Hello Yez,

Those shoes do look like that one blogspot template--hilarious! Blogclogs is the best funny I have heard all day!!!
