Going Retro: Block Party

dievca is having an interesting moment with the “Block Heel” sandals that have been in fashion for the past two years.
It’s a love/hate relationship.
she hated seeing the 1960’s ones on her aunts as they got older and didn’t update their closets in the 1980’s.
It reminded her of a fashion “no”.
Especially the white leather/pleather ones worn at weddings.

 

But now, they are back and the 1960’s version doesn’t look too bad, really.

dievca loves the pair of sandals she picked up, last summer:

See by Chloe block-heel sandal Red

and these, this summer:

Firth two piece black leather sandals

They are very comfortable and dievca can walk the City.
Maybe her Aunts were on to something when they couldn’t let the shoes go~

Time to wear the sandals to a Block Party!

  1. I remember they could be very stylish, and I like those ones with the wooden heel !

    Chunky and cute! But I prefer the classic stiletto shape. Speaking of, I thought of you when I saw this: http://www.dazeddigital.com/fashion/article/36948/1/so-saint-laurent-have-released-stiletto-rollerskates-ysl-anthony-vaccarello

      I can’t walk the City in the stilettos anymore — I wish. (sigh)
      OMG – those roller skates are FABULOUS! Can you imagine? I foresee disastrous injury unless you are a Roller-Goddess! Do you mind if I post about these?
