NEW IN: SPACE SHOES




I had planned an outfit post on this blog for yesterday, but a latest spike in my weekend-only social life prevented me to do so. Instead, I spent much of yesterday, and all of today, fervently obsessing over the revelation of the first trailer and poster for the Tom Cruise starring sci-fi film, Oblivion. 


As derivative as the trailer may seem, no amount of formulaic plot-lines can drive me away from my love for sci-fi films-- my second favorite genre behind Film Noir. And most importantly, any film starring Tom Cruise automatically finds itself on my list of Most Anticipated Films of the year with repeat viewings upon its theatrical release. I'm a rare species that is still madly in love with Tom Cruise (the actor, not necessarily the person, although he's probably one of the nicest celebrities in real life), and no amount of Scientology sheninigans can deter my love for the Cruiser. If you thought the avid and morbid Twi-hard fans were bad, you have no idea what I'm capable of. And although my species is close to extinction, seeing how everyone is on the "I Hate TC" Bandwagon nowadays, one of me is more than enough. But enough of my Tom Cruise obsession, I shall save that for later. First, I must establish myself as a prominent fashion blogger, after which I will brainwash you with my TC infatuation. 

Most of my day was spent on movie forums discussing the trailer in question, after which, I spent time locating sci-fi/space/futuristic inspired items in my closet. This had inspired me to put together and subsequently blog a futuristic outfit post, where I would discuss my love for 2001: A Space Odyssey and how it curated me to become the person I am today. But alas, the hunt proved fatal. 

What I seem to have overlooked in my frantic closet hunt were these super awesome Alexander Wang Anais Metallic loafer pumps that I had procured some months back. Adorned with metallic tassels, these cool hybrid heels caused a stir at the FW11 Alexander Wang show and caused me to shell out hundreds of dollars for a pair of shoes-- a feat that I have never engaged in before (this is a false statement). And although I managed to snag them at a wopping 40% off via Net-A-Porter, it was still much, much, much more than I can ever fathom spending on shoes that will ultimately perish in the harsh Canadian winters (another false statement). But how could I resist shoes that reminded me so fondly of all things sci-fi and space related? Seriously, these are the shoes of the future, but with a retro silhouette. Talk about hybridity, they deserved their own blog post altogether!

  1. I love those shoes (and, I must admit, TC wasn't bad at all in Knight and Day)! I was swooning for those shoes in copper when they first made the scene. Alas, I'll just have to live vicariously through you :)
