Melissa Scarfun Summer
Can you spot the Hello Kitty band-aid?


I Melissa shoes.

I already had one pair — the Emotion wedges in turquoise (seen here), which I adore. Today I bought a pair of Scarfun Summer wedges, designed by Alexandre Herchcovitch. They are gleaming black with a decisive wedge heel & great ankle strap. God, I love them.

I was actually on a quest for flat sandals, or really, ANYTHING to replace my jandals (or thongs or flip-flops or whatever you call them). I walked around yesterday wearing mine & they ripped my feet up. Ouch. I went to Melbourne Central, this huge mall across the road from my house, & went into at least 6 shoe shops. Nothing really appealed to me… but I went to Myer today & once I tried these on, I knew I had to own them. I felt a bit guilty at first, since theoretically summer will be over soon & they would then be relegated to the back of the cupboard. But then I realised I could wear them with stockings in winter too — & they will go perfectly with my new “cyber coquette” look.

Today I’m wearing them with a long white shirt over olive green short-shorts (barely visible). I feel excellent & sort of indestructible, which is kind of the aim of the cyber coquette thing — a seductive robot. Yup.

For those of you who don’t like buying shoes online (I don’t blame you), here is their list of stockists, which ranges from Patricia Field in NYC to Colette in Paris to Designer Clothing Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand. Best of all, they’re plastic, so they’re cheap & vegan-friendly! Yay!
