Obsession of the Day: Alexander McQueen Snakeskin Peep-Toe Pumps

I know it’s been said before, but the loss of Alexander McQueen cannot be minimized. True lovers of fashion cannot deny the incredible genius of the man we lost earlier this year. He was a creative force of nature and he’ll be missed.

Take this pair of snakeskin peep-toe pumps as evidence of his craftsmanship and creative wit.

This is a great pair of near/far shoes. From afar, they look like what they are – an elegant pair of peep toes with a 5″ heel and a 1″ platform. Come nearer and you notice the genius of McQueen: snakeskin body, black leather inner sole, and a crystal-embellished gold tone skull at the top of the peep toe. Mmmhmm, mama like.

This is a pair of shoes that adds instant rock star glamour to even the simplest of outfits. Your LBD (or LWD for summer) is crying out for a shoe this dramatic. They’re like an illicit affair between a Park Avenue Princess and a British rock star and I love them like it’s my job.

Instructions: buy shoes, wear shoes out of store, add theme music, watch admirers faint.

Alexander McQueen Snakeskin Peep-Toe Pumps ($1,295) – available via the net-a-porter website.
