I SPY: Killer Heels

Nov 17, 2014

What's bad-ass in your closet?  SHOES?  Over the weekend I finally made it to Brooklyn Museum to check out the KILLER HEELS exhibition that opened back in September.  WOW!  Fashion worthy.  PROMISE.  Now I understand what everyone was raving about!

The exhibition takes you back into the history of the heel to present time.  You will see the evolvement and shifts of heels in fashion over time, and how heels have always been an important accessory.  It was unfortunately too dark inside to photograph.  So instead I've pulled some images from Brooklyn Museums webpage to allure you to go and want to see more!

You think you could walk in those heels?  Not me!  I would fall flat on my face!  See those super sharp Louboutin stilettos?  They look like they would make a good self defense weapon!  HA.  As absurd as some designs are they are really amazing works of art.  These are the kind of shoes I wouldn't mind having tossed around in a mess on display by my front door!  The exhibition is on till February 15, 2015.
