Our Day is a good day when it becomes apparent to the world how important ‘fashion’ is. So yesterday we actually had a good one; thanks to the choice of footwear by the first lady of the USA. #shoegate
FLOTUS was wearing black patent reptile leather high heels by (supposedly) Manolo Blahnik. Nothing wrong with that, she always wears them, we hear you say. Well everything is wrong with that very poor desicion because she and her husband were visiting Corpus Christi in Texas, nearby the catastrophic situation caused by hurricane Harvey.

The pumps caused a frenzy on the internet, in fact her entire outfit became a thing of importance. The fact that she changed into another outfit in the plane didn’t came unnoticed either.

Mr Chrisostomou plays with all kinds of every-day-objects but we, at Mimi Berlin, do like the shoes the best. We also chose the most pretty ones for you, the hooker kind of shoes Mr Chrisostomou worked with we didn’t like so much, but if you are curious or in love with those kinds of heels visit his website and check them out for yourself.
