Prada Bunny Shoe

6a0105364db45b970c01156f6a9c4c970c-800wi

I purchased the Prada bunny shoe. (That's what I call them)  I can't believe I did it, but when I saw them this past weekend at our Neiman's Last Call, I just couldn't resist them.  I made so much fun of this shoe when it came out!  So why was it that when I saw a  pair on the shelf, all cuddled up in their little shoe box that I just had to have them?  It was something of the collector in me I'm pretty sure…..

Prada
They are so cute!!  I'll admit too that when Tommy featured these on hisPradaruffle
I love both colors…..and the detail of the ruffle is really compelling….They have a really great look.  I'm smitten.

So tired of the rain in Dallas…here is a ridiculous picture of Sash sunbathing taken a couple of weeks ago.  (I just wanted to remember what sun looked like)

    I love them and have also thought I would bite if they ever came up on yoox or wherever. when you have a lot of shoes I think the quest changes–you are looking for things that push the boundaries of the collection–not just, say, another beautiful strappy wedge, no matter how well done.

    I was also sceptical when I saw them for the first time, but they grew on me and now I wish I too owned a pair.

    LOL I remember when Jane posted about shoes she disliked for one season and these were on her list. I think the patent brown really looks good. Definitely waiting to see what you pair them with! I had no idea you had two Corgis! Then I realized I kept mistaking Townsend for Sash πŸ˜› They are adorable πŸ™‚
    Oh Judy, I just wanted to let you know I will be visiting Dallas mid-May. I hope I will get a chance to see you. Please shoot me an email if you can πŸ˜€

    Wow, they do deserve a glass display cabinet for them, so sculptural! πŸ™‚ Will you be using them much, do you think? Look forward to seeing you work them! πŸ™‚
    I have my dream DVN shoes on their way to me (the beaded ones you & Jane have), and am SO SO SO excited! Can’t believe I finally tracked one down in my size!

    These shoes have always intrigued me. Never really got why people hated them so much, I fancy them! Sure they’re a bit strange, but that’s what makes them so alluring. These are cooler to me than some ‘it shoes’ out there.

    There have been many times, where I have rejected something at first glance, only to look again, and see with new eyes. I love when this happens.
    With in my own art, I always want people to look again and see something that they did not see before.
    I love when I am challenged. That goes on many levels. When a designer or artist gets me to look again at something that is at first a little too strange, or obscure, I appreciate it, because my mind has been opened one more notch.
    These shoes do just that, and the more you look at them, the more you see and love.

    they are very cute indeed.
    sometimes i find myself coming around to alot of things, or in some instances almost feeling bad that a piece may never have a home and thus, must rescue it??
    so glad to know you will be showing these soon in a fab look!
    and thank you again, for keeping me inspired and having much to look forward to knowing that if i work hard enough, i will certainly be able to SHOW IT
