Flowerboing ankle-wrap sandals by Rene Caovilla

I think ‘Flowerboing’ is going to be my Word of the Week. Flowerboing. It’s great, isn’t it? I am a little confused by it, though: I mean, obviously I can see where the “flower” part comes from, but the “boing”? Is it because the ankle strap looks like a spring? I have no idea, and I suspect I’ve probably spent too long thinking about it, so let’s look at the shoes, shall we?

These shoes are actually hard NOT to look at. They have more flowers on them than I’ve ever seen on a piece of footwear, and that’s a couple of dozen flowers too many for me, although I might change my mind if I were to see them on a foot. These are super-expensive at $1,195, but it does look like a lot of work has gone into creating them. Does that justify the price, do you think? If so, get them at Bergdorf Goodman.
