From the Waist Down

Following up from the sweet kitsch of Alberto Guardiani’s Lipstick heels, comes a saucier alternative. Instead of a tool of beauty, why not put a figure of beauty and feminity; like part of a woman’s body. Though there is some variation, most of the ‘cheeky heels’ are from the hips toward. I do find the kitsch factor wanes more in favour of pin-up motifs. Still who would complain at the sight of a femme fatale walking away with another set of gams as her actual heels?
