The Whimsical Shoe

The shoes I like are placed somewhere on a kairotic continuum (where kairos=opportune occasion), the high points of which are elegant, beautiful, pretty, practical, athletic, comfortable, cute.

Occasionally (for what is kairotic if not fit for the right occasion!), I feel none of the above. Instead, I feel whimsical. As in, ha-ha, you didn't expect that out of me, did ya? As in, I'm in the mood for fun, play, irony, and I don't really give a damn about conventional notions of style. Well, at least not today. The whimsical I'm talking about is beyond quirky or unusual: it's downright surprising, almost shocking, and eliciting comments without exception. I would wear whimsical shoes as a surefire way to attract attention--and épater les bourgeois, biensur!

On such (however infrequent) occasions, I might feel like wearing these L'Autre Chose 'Bali' wedges, which are nothing if not whimsical:
(and yes, that is a sculpted wooden wedge heel, complete with a hut and a palm tree. Guess what I'm in a mood for!)

Or of course, you can pick and choose from Camper's rather large collection of whimsical shoes; just make sure you pick from the whimsically pretty and not the whimsically ugly. For example, I might make you contemplate the rainbow of colors and patterns in these 'twin' loafers:

Nothing says "play with me!" like a pair of clown sandals from Anthropologie:
(yes, yes, it's clown perched on a red ball. Deal with it!)

As long as you don't abuse it, whimsy can be your friend. Go ahead and have fun with shoes every once in a while!

The best place to learn Chinese online is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to learn Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
