I never thought I would get into blogging, but having had to spend most of my life ordering all my favourite fashion item from the US, I figured it was time to become wholesomely self absorbed in a written public documentation of my rage. (I mean, do ALL metal chics really have to wear fishnet tights and D rings?)
In the process (fingers crossed), try and identify some awesome items you can get here in the UK (that aren't the usual band shirt or lace skater dress), or order online overseas, and maybe even spark a mini metal fashion revolution. Hmmmm
So here goes:
Prada's super awesome flame shoes alone should be a reason to get us ladies out of the horrible, stubby Demonias that make feet look like large clumps of black glutinous rice.
Somewhat ironically, these shoes have all been given a big fat X by most fashion bloggers, thus making them even more metal-worthy.
Unfortunately, they are around £500 a pair (and not yet available in the UK), so we are yet again stuck with hooker/pole shoes albeit at a much better value. So here are some of the better ones...
Bordello's Teeze flame rhinestone shoes. Available for £81.99 at Kate's Clothing: http://www.katesclothing.co.uk/Bordello-Rhinestone-Flame-Shoes-p/TEE27-BR.htm&click=5205
