LOVE / LUST: Clear Spikes x McQueen Silhouettes


Sass and Bide Clear Spike Harness Top - $424, Pixie Market
Spring 2011 trend alert: delicate pastel fabrics and clear spikes. We're dying over this combination and the first conception of clear spikes we've seen. That bag of Lite Brite pegs should be put to good use, they're pointy on one side, right? Utter bliss for the femmextremist in all of us, just put the chicken fighting on hold while wearing this.


Iris Van Herpen X United Nude Platform Boot - $1,295.95, Solestruck
Everyone's first thought about these beauties is of Alexander McQueen's Armadillo heels of 'Bad Romance' fame, and makes sense as Van Herpen was a McQueen collaborator. But with these, the domed shape is softened by the slatted leather for a springy, more wearable design. Only 100 have been made, so if for some awful reason your bulging wallet passes on the McQueen shoes, your next choice should be these. Buys us a pair too while you're at it babe, size 7.
