G and I have a running joke about clear heels that stems from a bit by Chris Rock that can be seen here (disclaimer: clip contains adult content and I do not support nor endorse Mr. Rock's comedy, but man, he can be one funny SOB).
Any time I see someone wearing them, (if you have them on right now, STOP READING HERE) I can't help but chuckle to myself and think of my goofy (but darling) husband trying to do his best Chris Rock impersonation ("Guuurl, you disgusting!"). Then I find myself trying to figure out why in the world the Clear Heel Offender has decided on this particular option for their fashion footwear of the day.
While checking in on one of my daily reads, Scented Glossy Magazines, I discovered a post about another clear accessory that should not be worn unless expressly mandated by a store manager or prison marshall.
With this as my general stance against plastic, see-through-accessories, you can imagine my surprise/shock/confusion when I come across something like this (which has already happened a few times this Spring)...
Apparently clear heels are on their way up from trying to pay their way through medical school.
They are now trying to get in with the fashionably chic (think wide leg denim trousers and cashmere halter tops). Sooner or later, they will be found sipping mojitos poolside in the Hamptons. When this happens, Clear Heels, call me up and we'll go out for congratulatory drinks (your treat, I KNOW you're loaded with cash)... but until then - Gurrrrl, you disgusting.
