During episode two of Project Runway All Stars, controversial designer, Wendy Pepper, was voted off for this look:

When she was critiqued, by guest judge Rafe Totengco, a handbag designer for Nine West, she was told, “I do not know where to look. I do not have a place for my eye to go.”   This was a shoe challenge where the designers were allowed to select a pair of Nine West fun, party shoes and design a party outfit to go with the shoes.  Totengco was kinder than I might have been…when I looked at this outfit I just thought, “how unfortunate.”  But, it did remind me that when you have a fun pair of shoes, perhaps they need to be the star of the outfit.

I kept this in mind when I wanted to wear these shoes, and I made sure the outfit was simple so that eyes would go to the shoes!!!  I got these on a clearance rack about five summers ago and I truly love the shoe…though I do not wear them often.  Amidst the taupe background is a pattern with red, green, purple, gold, and silver.
