Sometimes I Get An Irrational Lust For Things

....and right now, it's for a pair of these.




Spectator shoes.

And no, I don't know why.

With taps. You could be the biggest tap dancing knitter in Sydney. I'd pay to watch.

Because they are FABULOUS!

Hah, MrP I CAN tap. Although I haven't done it for a number of years. Two friends of mine and I learnt in 1996, just for the fun of it. It's HARD.

Jodie, I knew there was a reason! :)

Hmm, do they make 'em in heels?

I'm sure they'll look smashing with your zoot suit, although I'll still register my reservation about a diminutive guy wearing that jacket length

as kelly in 'shoes' would say; these shoes rule.

I have a pair of those.

The last time I wore them was at my 30th birthday party, with a black mini-skirt and white t-shirt.

Today is my 39th birthday, and I still have those shoes, waiting for a time when it might be appropriate to wear them again...

They're very "Cotton Club". Which is a good thing. I think The Sartorialist would approve of you in those with some pleated wide leg black pants from the 80's (narrow trouser cuff), a white shirt and black braces.

my immediate thought was:

spectator because of the patent leather = the old myth of looking up ladies dresses ;-)

or perhaps, they're dressy and impractical so it means you aren't a labourer, you're a spectator?
