Inspired by Chloé’s “Susan” ankle boots.

I was in Milan, calm and collected, about to make the rounds for the fashion weekend while marching on the asphalt road, when a girl showed up wearing shoes, I mean,  those shoes, those strange-looking shoes.

But strangely, I couldn’t take my eyes off them.

I asked her, Who are you wearing?”

She looked at me and said, “Oh, these are Chloé shoes!”

And then I watched the shoes walked past me. As they approached from the Marni runway, I found them a lot less strange-looking this time. They made another appearance on the Etro runway and their gold buckles seemed to wink at me. By the end of the show, they became so intriguing. While waiting in line at the Fendi show, they stepped on my feet. Since we were already friends from that first morning, I obligingly excused them with a big smile on my face. When I found them seated beside me, I took great pleasure in staring at them. Fendi shoes are good but the Chloé ones…I wonder how they’d look paired with a gauzy skirt, it’s sure to give a ultra-cool rockabilly vibe. And then with a mini-short, hmm…Oh, and with skintight jeans…

Merde, the show was over.

I applauded much too loudly while glancing for the last time. I turned away and they were gone.

Suddenly, the crowd disappeared and how I missed those precious little darlings.

Edit: Since I want to show you these lovelies, I did a poor scan from the En Vogue super-series (Vogue- June/July 2008 issue). See for yourselves. Love them, hate them, then leave them be…

Bisou, bonne journée!
