The first thing that came up to my mind when I saw this shoe was Barbie! Remember the very famous doll in the 80s? Nope, this is not a Barbie doll shoe but an actual shoe.
As a kid, I was fascinated with Barbie’s shoes and how her feet was unusually made tiptoed to accommodate high heeled plastic shoes so I fairly remember how her shoes looks like. If you have a Skipper doll, you’d know and see the difference. Barbie was a symbol of a grown-up lady doll which most of the time wears high heeled shoes while Skipper wears sneakers. Don’t ask me about Ken because I never had one.
Melissa started collaborating with Vivienne Westwood in 2008. And this one here is the Vivienne Westwood Miss Lady Dragon from Melissa’s Spring/Summer 2009 Black Line Collection. It comes in 8 different colors where 4 of which has a heart top embellishment while the other 4 consists of an insignia. It is available locally for PHP5,999.00 which is about US$129.
But I can’t seem to find this shoe I really like which I saw from their other international site. Really getting frustrated looking for this one over the net. I guess this is from their past shoe collection.
