So this is the first post to feature photos taken by me. Putting these photos on the blog hadn't even entered my mind when I took them but then it occurred to me that this blog is about documenting my shoe design inspiration and that was the purpose of taking the photos - so yeah - of course they should be here. I'm just in such a rhythm with how I do this blog that doing something different feels like I'm breaking the rules, but I make the rules. So onto the shoes. I felt that these vintage Sergio Rossi's had that nice balance of being simple while also being interesting. the gold extending a little way down the sole, and the shaping under the ankle are both very nice touches.
