Someone once told me I look like a young Elvis Presley (note: I am a female with smile that sometimes borders on an unconscious snarl). Ever since, I’ve wanted a pair of blue suede shoes in which to wildly gyrate my pelvis and sing karaoke….
Well, it’s one for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready,
Now go, cat, go.
(Additional note: Doing karaoke is on my Bucket List. Doing it in blue suede shoes seems so much more…colorful.)
Surprisingly, I’ve actually found blue suede stilettos that are really sweet and made for the stage–even if that stage happens to be inside a dive bar. In what appears to be a nod to the King, Jimmy Choo created the metallic-studded suede Glint bootie ($995). In this smashing sapphire color, it commands attention in any best-dressed crowd and a rear zipper allows you to slip a stocking-clad foot in and out with ease.
When a girlfriend recently inquired about what I might wear with such a pair, pending my performance of a lifetime (jeans? leggings? a mini skirt?), I replied, “my pompadour.” Translation: big, billowy, Priscilla-inspired hair with a lot of volume and lift at the root.
