Cleavage. The good, the bad, the ugly.

Admit it.  The only reason why you are reading this post is because the title sucked you in.  Right?  It would’ve sucked me in, lol! 

“I have the advantage of study,” he [Manolo Blahnik] told Colin McDowell. “I’ve been studying the art of the shoe… for over twenty years. I know every process. I know how to cut and cut away here (the side of the shoe) and still make it so that it stays on the foot. And the secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe. You must only show the first two cracks. And the heel. Even if it’s twelve centimetres high it still has to feel secure – and that’s a question of balance. That’s why I carve each heel personally myself – on the machine and then by hand with a chisel and file, until it’s exactly right.”

Oops.  Does this make me a toe cleavage bearing whore??  Haha!  If I could ask Manolo Blahnik one question, it would be, “The first two cracks from the right or from the left???”  Just kidding.  The question would be something more like, “Will you come live in my home and make me a new pair of shoes daily?” 

p.s. Jen (pronounced Yen) doesn’t like the word “thrifted“, which is great, because these shoes weren’t exactly “thrifted.”  They were consigned.  So I bought them.  For $25.  I know, it isn’t impressive, but I gotta tell you, I really love these shoes.  And $25 beat the original price (which was $178 if I remember correctly.)
