Walking On Lipstick?



via luxist



Italian Designer Alberto Guardiani has designed a pump that includes two things I absolutely love: shoes and lipstick. I could totally see Lady Gaga wearing these but I would have major trouble walking in them. And forking out $400.00 to buy them! What do you think? Would you wear them?

My Life:
So earlier this week I posted about all the snow and freezing cold weather we've been having. Well on Wednesday, on my lunch break, I was driving and got a flat tire. I had been driving on it for about three minutes before I realized it. The bad news is that it was about -32 C with the wind chill and I GOT A FLAT TIRE. It was totally destroyed, I was burning rubber and thought for sure I damaged the rim. The good news is that it happened one block away from where I get my tires from so I drove there (let me tell you it was a very bumpy ride) and the guys put on a new tire for me in thirty minutes! And my rim was fine. I felt extremely lucky.

I wanted to share this photo with you. We have a fireplace (which we've been using every night this week) and Kitty loves to lay in front of it in her basket and sleep. I thought it was so cute I just had to post it. Do I post too many pics of my cat? Am I turning into a crazy cat lady? I hope not! Let me know in the comments ; )

Have a great weekend and if you're experiencing ridiculous temperatures like I am STAY WARM!

MINAKICHU said...

Haha you're not a craZy cat lady I find it so adorable you love your pet the way I do. I also admire your optimism even in dire scenarios other people wouldve been cursing over a flat tire. And gosh those shoes are unique. I think I find it cute:-)

my Sister -in-law had (car was totalled in accident) run flat tires - they are $$$ but WELL worth it (especially if u have kids) - u can drive on those babies for days :o) haha

yup i got a waterbed - i can't sleep on "normal" beds - when i say i like SOFT and SINK in the bed - i mean it - water bed + feather beds = perfection :o)

Closet Fashionista said...

Aww what a cute kitty!! And lucky you were so close to your tire place when that happened!
Those shoes are pretty coocoo, but I love them!

and haha....that's funny! I live in CT :) So it gets very cold (though not as cold as where you are)..today it was 14 F when I drove to work, now it's 18

That sucks about the flat tire - glad to hear everything worked out alright though. And I always love seeing an adorable cat photo so I definitely don't think you post too many (my cats would love to be able to curl up in front of a fire place, if they only knew what they were missing).

I would so break my feet in those heels, definitely not for me!

Bits and Beauty said...

That pic looks so lovely and warm at least you have a gorgeous fire to come home to! Glad the flat tire situation wasn't too stressful, nothing worse when it's freezing and you just want to get home! Carly x

modniza said...

cool shoes!

Christine said...

awwww you're cat is so cute <3

Pop Champagne said...

aww the kitty is cute like that! hmm with those shoes the first thought that came to my mind is that once you wear them out the lipstick is going to get worn out and dull! I'd be so sad. but I'd buy them to keep as display in my house hahaha

Tracy@mybestbeautybuys said...

Those shoes would love great on my shelf but there is no way I could walk in them! Love the picture of your cat in front of the fire :)

Jessica said...

Oh my gosh I'm so sorry to hear about your flat tire! Goodness, what terrible luck. I hope you have a fabulous weekend. Those shoes are insane, by the way!

Ashley said...

You could never post too many pictures of your cat! I love cats. Well, I love pictures of cats. Actual cats not so much, because I'm allergic.

Sorry to hear about your tire mishap. :| How absolutely not fun. I wonder what happened to it?

And, last but not least, I like the looks of the shoes, but I'd NEVER wear them! They'd probably be used as a bookend or something so I could display them.

Those pumps are so funny. I'd love to have just one shoe for a conversation piece..it looks more like art!

Your kitty is so precious. Please don't stop posting pictures of her.

My kitty likes to sleep directly on top of the heating vent in the floor. It must get so hot, I don't know how he does it!

Too bad about your tire....but, like you said, you're lucky it wasn't worse.

Marie a la Mode said...

Adrienne: Mine loves to sleep on vents, too. And my laptop, must be the warmth!

AnNeTtEe said...

wow! that looks pretty cool!! wouldn't it be funny is you break the heels & be like, "ugh my lipstick broke"... LOL

sorry to hear about you getting a flat tire... glad to hear you were ok & nothing bad happened...

Miss*Kimmy said...

Glad the tire sitch turned out ok in the end! At first when I was reading it and saw -32 I was like OMG, NO!!!

AND NO WAY are you posting too many pics of your cat!! (says the crazy cat lady herself hehe). I love pics of your kitty, and this one is so damn cute! Whenever I see a sleeping cat it gives me such a calm cozy feeling. It puts me to sleep =) And paired with the fireplace, it makes me just want to be home in comfy pjs sleeping in my bed =)
Have a good weekend!

I think the shoes are fun, but also kind of cheesy, so I would have an extremely hard time forking over $400 for them.

Marisa said...

woww I love your fir place it's so cozy!

Tamera's Take said...

Hahaha! Crazy cat lady! THe shoes are a little too much for me so I probably wouldn't wear them but their creativity is amazing. It's such an artistic idea!

SiSi Sparkles said...

I can't even walk around in regular high heels! But wow, those look very interesting:] You have a cute cat!

J. said...

Those shoes are cool-dont think I could pull them off, let alone walk in them.
Stay warm out there in E town.

If you are the crazy cat lady I am the crazy dog lady, because I post a lot of pictures of Dixie!
I am glad your flat-tire story had a happy ending because this is the WORST weather to have to deal with a flat tire in! Stay warm (with Kitty by the fire).
