Designs That Fascinate:  Stiletto Heels

Designs That Fascinate: Stiletto Heels

Oh my goodness, I'm in love with these shoes:  Stiletto Heels.  The designs fascinate me, they're stunning and wild and sometimes utterly ridiculous!  A flood gate of designs has been unleashed. Do I wear them? NOooo!!!  I'm not crazy, I just love how they look.  I applaud women gutsy enough to wear them.  

You may be asking what on earth does Stiletto heels have to do with home decorating or making pillows or even artists:  COLOR, sweetie.  DESIGN, IMAGINATION.  Often I even find old designs reinterpreted, just as one takes a home old color scheme, freshen it up with a new interpretation.  We never tire of blue and white or blue and yellow color schemes.  We just reinterpret them in ways that give them a contemporary look.

Here are some of my favorite color combinations in Stiletto heels. Others are fascinating just by sheer design.  While some, well . . . they're just dangerous.

Soft color palettes not only fun for the city but wonderful for simple, beach and cottage life styles:

How lovely this floral ceiling references the blue and green hue of floral Stiletto!

Decor aside, I simply love these Stilettos for their colors, design or just plain fun:

They're just sweet and so down to "country" earth!

I must include the following two Stilettos.  They're examples of platforms which I view as dangerous and should be sold with accident insurance.

Far from being a comprehensive show of the many wonderful designs, I could only give a few examples of Stilettos I find fascinating.  And again, no I don't own or wear them.  Been there, done that during my very youthful years.  Still, I love the look of them, marvel at the women who wear them, and like that they can be inspirations for home decorating.  Or perhaps it's the other way around?

You are of course free to let me know how you feel about them--or don't feel about them!
