The Place: Barney’s New York, Madison Avenue and 61st Street, Shoe Salon.
The Aim: Shoes.
The Situation*: A certain up-and-coming R&B singer was deciding between two pairs of Louboutins for her latest music video. Not trusting her shopping buddy (and wisely so), she turned to me, an innocent bystander, for fashion advice. And boy was she in luck. She was deciding between two pairs of shoes, the ones above and another pair that is far too hideous to show you.
Now, I’m not a big fan of the shoes she settled on, but you have to understand the situation*. She was interested in shoes that would pop on screen. She needed that wow factor, that zing that would transfer over to video. And these shoes do that. But she was a little worried because Trina wore them already. After a few minutes of chatting, I convinced her of two things: 1. the shoes were spectacular and perfect for her circumstance and it would be a shame to pass them up and 2. imitation is the best form of flattery (just check out Canal Street – the boys down there will agree).
So, keep your eyes peeled for this artist’s newest video and the shoes picked out by yours truly.
