Item of the Moment: Seeing Double

Moschino Cheap and Chic's latest shoe hybrid in action and for sale

There's a famous adage that says two is always better than one. In a time when retailers offer huge discounts and rampant two-for-one deals, a flock of consumers are surely on the wagon. But what about the more upscale retailers? What's their say on this ubiquitous price slashing?

One Italian label, Moschino's Cheap and Chic line is declining to lower their relatively low prices. Instead, they are offering footwear that is arguably more Frankenstein than fashion. But it does point the whole two-for-one deal across.

If ever you're in a rut for purchasing new shoes for Fall, you may want to consider this offering. Ankle boots are definite hot stock for the Fall season. Then again, sandals are pretty standard in the following Spring season. Instead of purchasing two pairs of shoes, why not combine them? That seems to be the logic behind these two-faced footwear, and there are some that are fastidiously jumping on the idea.
Glamour recently admitted that it "will definitely make you crack a smile...."

Who wouldn't? Even Harlequin would wear it to complete her asymmetric look.

Hahaha, tempting indeed! In England sweaters = jumpers, overalls = playsuit!
Square toes = VOMIT, I'm glad we can agree!!

But I like the way you write, a lot :-)

That's a pretty unusual footwear look. I'm not that interested in such a style, though. But I'm sure a lotta of fashionistas out there will appreciate it! :)
