Lucite Heels

{Edited by G&P; Original Images a la We Heart It & Pippa On The Wall}

Don’t run away … I swear I’m not talking about stripper heels.  Well, I’ll start by talking about stripper heels, but hey, fashion evolves.  I’m from the old school of thought that plastic heels are for princess party dress-up sets  when the plastic heels come in only one size, size ‘toddler.’  The only grown women I’d ever encountered in clear plastic heels were strippers.  Okay, big lie … I have never ever encountered a stripper.  Wait, I did see Jessie Spano (post Saved By The Bell) in plastic heels but I don’t think movies count as real life and I do think Jessie wishes to forget her plastic-heeled performance.  I have seen grown men in clear plastic heels but that was in Key West, and men don’t count.

I digress … quite a bit.  Right, stripper heels no more.  If PRADA makes clear plastic heels, they MUST have some redeeming quality.

I secretly love Lucite heels (secret no more.)  I mean, you turn four, you get this fantastic pink cardboard chest of princess party accoutrements, and then bam, you’re ten and you’re not so much as to look at a plastic heel again.  What gives?  I’m shoving plastic heeled footwear to the top of my wishlist.

Note to self, don’t wear new shoes in front of Grandma.

I love lucite heels so much, I made you two boards …

    I always associated plastic heels with stripper heels, but glad to know the fashion has involved into some stylish shoes.

  5. the yellow #3 in the first board are my faves… This is such a great idea for a post, because if something is done a little ‘off’ just like the stripper heels it can go wrong! But excellent choices for the ‘do’ shoes:)

  6. I have always wanted to pull off heels but the fact that I’m already 6.1’ and my husband is already shorter than me has kind of thwarted that. I’m better in flats. 😉

    • I’m 5’2 and I feel so dwarfed without heels! I think you’re lucky to have an excuse to wear flats 24/7. 🙂

  7. love those translucent heels. they re funny and despite of being plastic, quite stylished I think!

    In some country you can by shoes with goldfish in the plastic heels… Just a thought :0).

  9. You crack me up! I’m not sure if I love the lucite heel yet. Wait another season and I’ll probably be all over the trend.

  10. Haha such a funny post!!! I found some really cute lucite heels from Betsy Johnson…I’ll never wear them out (unless with a super girly, poofy Betsy Johnson dress!) because of the stripper connotation like you said, but they are so much fun and so cute! I wish they didn’t have a bad image!
