Heart says yes/Head says No

There are some amazing shoes for sale on the Cocosa website, they are not in my size, not practical (I can't walk in any heels over 4 inches high) but I really want them! I need them - they will make my life happy and fulfilled....OK I am so lame for putting a pair of shoes on such a high pedestal. I know I use retail therapy as a distraction from my hum drum life of being a working mother. I have always loved to shop even before I used to work in the fashion industry and since leaving it. I have spent all day at the office humming and ahhing and cooing over these bloody shoes. Now when I go to the website to actually make the purchase, the website it under maintenance!!!! BTW its the gold one on the left. Here is a bit more about the designer and her shoes.


Designer Deborah Lyons blends futurism and femininity through contrasting materials and textures, seductive metallics, and soaring high heels. Vamp meets European sophistication with must-have boots in lust-worthy pythons, patents, moire silks and suedes, evoking a fine line between the whimsical and the avant-garde. Lyons's shoes are a testament to fine Italian craftsmanship, integrity of design, and an understanding of a woman's need for comfort. Saturating the collection, are empowering colors such as petrol blue, rose gold, steel, and black, which emphasize the two-tone cut outs of these fanciful styles.
Deborah Lyons, Designer, approaches shoe design from a clean, bold, sculptural point of view. Inspired and trained by her artist grandmother, Deborah's passion led her to study art in London, Florence, and Paris, eventually ending up at Parsons University to study fashion design. By the age of 25, Deborah began her own line, overseeing the development of her creations by traveling to the factories in Italy and Spain, studying the craft and working with the artisans themselves. Deborah's background has strongly influenced her style, and her shoes reflect a potent combination of European style and youthful sensibility. Fiercely feminine, her designs combine a mix of luxurious textiles, leathers and metals. Deborah's elevation of the shoe to art for the foot is boldly captured in her signature-- a gold triangle stretched out on the sole down to the heel.

  2. Those blue shoes are just gorgeous, not very practical for me spending most of my time in the garden, but still lovely..!
