Wilder Style: Funny Shoes from Charlotte Olympia via Moda Operandi (and) A Sleeping Moon Doodle

Man, do I love a shoe with a sense of humor, and these pumps by Charlotte Olympia that were up on Moda Operandi have me tickled pink (blue, purple, and yellow, rather). Unfortunately the trunk show ended, but I wanted to post about them anyways because they're just the funniest little things I've ever seen, and beautiful, too. Yet sad as well, see? The shoe is crying! Goodness, so many emotions elicited from one high heel.

Besides the emotional journey these foot-holders take me on, I also love them because when I was little I used to draw moons with faces; they were always sleeping and wearing night caps, a detail that's a bit weird, now that I think about it. Also, the designer has the same name as I, a fact that prompted me to include her designs in a post last month (doodle after the jump).

I drew my old moon doodle quickly to show you the similarities:

This little guy popped up in most of my notebooks in seventh grade. Maybe I'll do a post on old doodles, because I had quite a few: sheep jumping over fences, planets, hammocks. Come to think of it, many of them had to do with sleep. Middle school must have been boring when it wasn't socially traumatic.

That doodle does kind of look like the shoe, though, right? I mean, sure, the other Charlotte's design is a bit more sophisticated, but you can see where I'm coming from. What I take away from the whole thing is that I should make a line of shoes based on my old doodles. Enough of this blogging stuff, let's get down to business: who wants a moccasin with a sheep on it?
