Alejandro Ingelmo for Chris Benz Floral Wedge Pumps

I’m going to keep this one short, folks, because as soon as I read the name of the designer of these shoes, my brain started playing Lady Gaga’s  ‘Alejandro’ on a loop, and now it’s pretty much the only thing in my mind.

What do you all think of these? They’re by Alejandro (“Don’t call my name, don’t call my name!”) Injelmo for Chris Benz, and while I find the shape interesting, I look at the upper and I see… slippers. Or possibly curtains.

What do you see? Do these, er, call your name?

  • Ok, I have to laugh, because after I read what you wrote, now it’s me, I can’t get rid of “Ale Alejandro, Ale Alejaaandrooooo”! Omg! Anyway, I love floral prints, but that style with part of “boots” up, noooo… if they were more like real courts, or Mary Janes, ok… this way, not for me. And shopbop? I bet they are expensive!

  • On facebook the little picture of this shoe made the pattern look like a hideous monster with eyes and huge mouth (white flower scary eye, red flower mouth), so I can now not decide if I’m relieved it was just flowers, or disappointed.
    They seem very tame compared with what my brain thought.

  • Again, I’m going to have to be the odd one out because I REALLY like these. I think they are really unusual, but then I often have a whole granny chic thing going on and they would really go well with it. I’d definitely wear them.
