Jungle Julia: A Very Brief Note

Did anyone see the movie Death Proof starring Syndey T. Poiter as "Jungle Julia?" One of the things that puzzled me about the movie was how in the hell they could call her character "Jungle Julia" and have no real references to anything... Jungle-like (racial overtones ignored and dismissed) - shouldn't she have at least rocked ONE pair of cheetah print heels?

If Tarantino and I were dialoguing right now (ha!), I'd suggest the following shoe, available at www.saks.com:



Fashion OGs should be shaking their head right now and recognizing the shoe in question... for you bougie budget novices out there, this is a Stuart Weitzman delectable stiletto pump - "Beacon Pinch Toe." Cheetah print shoes are a wardrobe staple, and when done right they glam up even the most mundane outfit. Weitzman is notorious for having narrow (and expensive!) shoes... but his heels make your legs look dynamic and inspired.

This pair's on sale for $101.90 (with free shipping) ... so for all you size 10 shoe wearers... grab it while you still can! I promise, you'll turn heads in these heels!

EDIT:

Some more examples of a nice subtle cheetah print by high-end designers for ridiculously bargain prices - all available at www.footcandyshoes.com:

Luciano Padovan - Cheetah Print d'Orsay Pump ($150... reduced from $385)


Casadei - Leopard Slingback ($150... reduced from $420)

okay...I must cosign on the Stuart Weitzman pumps. His shoes are fabulous and well worth it. I bought a pair of booties in fall 2003...they are still gorgeous.

Tomiko said...
