Shark Bite

I am absolutely obsessed with these amazing new Jeffrey Campbells I acquired via Nasty Gal last week. They are reminiscent of Theysken’s Theory in their colossal pointy-toe ankle-strap awesomeness, but they have these bite marks in them that could verifiably hurt as much as the shark bite they invoke, but they don’t hurt because your feet are protected by a sturdy bit of malleable clear plastic. Ohmygosh I love them.

One thing you definitely won’t see that often on PSS is me baring my legs – as a shorty (5’2″) I’m not a fan of my stems, and hardly think of them as dainty. But when I put on these shoes, let me tell you…

Ladies, if you are self conscious about your legs, do as Auntie Kristina did, and:

  1. apply self-tanner, then
  2. immediately regret the orange knee idea, then
  3. slap on these platforms and you will seriously feel amazing.

It’s something about the shoes. And the fact that I no longer look quite so ghost-like.

You can purchase your own pair at Nasty Gal, my friends. Get bitten, you so won’t regret it!

    Wonderful pictures as always πŸ™‚ The shoes look fabulous and I love the colour. Also loving the hair photograph, will be giving that a go! Thankyou for being brave and baring your legs, although I do think it’s way too cold to do that here in the UK at the moment! πŸ™‚

    I’ve never loved my legs either. Although I’m 5’8″, I’m also pear shaped so they’ve long been my least favorite body part. So, maybe I need to get these shoes – they DO look quite fantastic on you! πŸ™‚

      You and me both sister. But seriously, after I took these photos, the next day I went to Sephora and bought this ah-mazing sunless tanner, and now, no orange spots! And my legs look slimmer! so that with the shoes = good legs. Not great legs, but finally at least good ones. πŸ™‚ Here’s the sunless tanner that has changed my life in the last 48 hours:

    I love that this has a boho feel but also looks so clean and pulled together! Wanting those shoes so very badly. x

    I love these shoes!! I always fear a really high wedge what kind of tips do you have for wearing and balancing in shoes like these? Also are these comfortable on a scale of 1-10 how would you grade them? See it really is funny I have skinny longer limbs (also a shortie but my limbs are really long looking) and I absolutely love the shape of your legs.

      I guess we always want what we don’t have, right asia?
      These are very easy to walk in if you have worn platform heels before. I was pleasantly surprised. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being very comfortable, I would rate these about a 5. I’ve had some pretty darn uncomfortable shoes in the past, but I was able to walk around in these for quite a while without blisters or any sharp pains. However, I rated them a 5 because a 10 to me would be like bunny slippers. πŸ™‚ Hope that helps!

    Love the shoes and the hair. You aren’t putting down Tiffany necklace anytime soon , I’m sure πŸ˜‰

      Oh heck no, Vidhya! It has become part of my regular jewelry collection, right alongside my Michael Kors silver watch and engagement ring. πŸ™‚

    hey, i always say that if the heel’s high enough, i’ll attempt any look! (p.s. it’s way to cold in nyc to attempt a bare leg!)

  8. 01.16.2012 / 7:33 am

    great shoes! and a wonderful outfit!I’m very cautious with self-tanner, well let’s say I’ve not yet found the perfect one…

      Okay Anita, yesterday I was determined not to give up the orange-glo fight–I went to sephora and bought this:
      and it’s amazing! put the tanner on last night and today woke up with NO orangey spots, just a beautiful, natural looking tan! I’m so happy!

    Kristina – the shoes are fabulous!! And I love the jacket as well! You look fantastic! Have a great Monday! xo, Christina

    I already saw this on instagram, but I have these babies and I love them so much! I hot them a few months ago, but noticed Theyskins Theories on blogger Jazzi a little while ago and was happy to own something so similar. Love this post..keep up the great work!

  11. 01.16.2012 / 8:27 am

    Kristina, this might be my fave look from you EVER! love the shoes, the hair, the jacket… everything :)Oh, and you have AMAZING legs πŸ˜‰

      Aw thank you Neris! That is so sweet of you to say – I hate my legs but I’m glad you love this look! I loved the outfit too and want to repeat it again! LOL

  12. 01.16.2012 / 8:50 am

    Those shoes are ah-mazing. Your legs look great! πŸ˜‰

  13. 01.16.2012 / 9:25 am

    Your hairstyle is very cute! I adore it πŸ™‚

    Awww I love them! Way more than the Theysken’s Theory ones. They are more special, and I really liked their color and their shark bites. heheLoved everything about your outfit, and your hairstyle. Really stylish look.

  15. 01.16.2012 / 2:29 pm

    Those shoes are gorgeous!! I adore your braided bun too.

    I love your hair. It’s so cute! And your legs look great. πŸ™‚

    Jeffry Campbell makes a hell of a shoe an these look fantastic on you! Love the hair too! Great look!

  18. 01.16.2012 / 3:02 pm

    The hair is awesome. JC makes great shoes. Bare legs wow- mine won’t be out til May in Chicago LOL

  19. 01.16.2012 / 3:11 pm

    Love this, Kristina! I’m typically not a Jeffrey Campbell fan (yeah, probably the only one), but I love this shoe! Maybe it’s because it’s a bit daintier, and I love patent in any color . Fun hair, too–my hair is finally long enough to try some funky updos, so this one is now on my list.

    • 01.16.2012 / 3:35 pm

      I completely agree with you Jenni re: JC. This is kind of a departure because they are more feminine and demure…but still have that fierceness with the cut out details. I’m a big fan of Jeffrey Campbell and I loved this shoe, so I guess he won over both sides of the camp with this one!

  20. 01.16.2012 / 3:19 pm

    Love the hair. And the jacket!

  21. 01.16.2012 / 4:06 pm

    I love the shoes and your hair looks gorgeous like that.

  22. 01.16.2012 / 5:23 pm

    Never seen those shoes before! Very original. I like how you paired them with a dress πŸ™‚

  23. 01.16.2012 / 5:52 pm

    This is such a beautiful outfit. Words cannot describe those shoes. I usually find most Jeffrey Campbell shoes a little too ostentatious for my taste, but these are perfect!

  24. 01.16.2012 / 5:56 pm

    Looking good girl! And can I make a request for your next vlog – how to apply self tanner. I’ve always wanted to do this but am super scared of the orange knees you mentioned. Need your guidance! =)

  25. 01.16.2012 / 6:58 pm

    Gorgeous hair, and love this outfit! Have to admit that I’m not sure how I feel about these shoes… partly because I just can’t picture myself wearing them… however, I absolutely LOVE you in this dress/jacket combo. I also don’t wear skirts too often but have on up on the blog today (knee-length, though!). Happy Monday.

  26. 01.16.2012 / 7:21 pm

    I hate to sound like a random poster, but I actually found your blog through Instagram! This post is actually something I totally relate to! (1) I’m a 5’2″ gal, (2) I don’t necessarily like exposing my gams since I’m pale (and petite) and (3) I don’t have a lot of fab heels/wedges to show off.
    I saw those same JC wedges online but am tempted after seeing them here. =) The color and the design are so appealing!

  27. 01.16.2012 / 8:26 pm

    I too am pale, pale, pale. I found a spray tan place where they use an organic, sugar compound that goes on clear and then it intensifies until you shower. It’s very cool because when you’re “tan enough” you can just hop in the shower and it stops”tanning” but you stay tan for about 8 days! It’s not sticky at all either.
    Shoes: want & need them.

  28. 01.16.2012 / 9:33 pm

    Kristina, you look amazing! You have no need to fear bearing your legs sweetie. AND – BY THE WAY – THOSE SHOES ARE BEYOND, BEYOND AMAZING! I’m in love them! I love how you paired your dress w/ your jacket from your “Sgt. Pepper” post and pair it withe the shoes. Very cool my dear! πŸ™‚

  29. 01.16.2012 / 11:25 pm

    One word…Gorgeous! RT β€œ@PrttyShnySprkly: Shark Bite featuring @JCshoes @BBDAKOTAINC @wendynguyen & @Forever21 #style”

    This outfit is so pretty and feminine, the lace and the colour! and those shoes are just wow!xx

  31. 01.17.2012 / 5:48 pm

    When I saw you tweet these shoes the other day, I wasn’t sold on them but actually seeing them on? OMG, they are hot!

  32. 01.19.2012 / 6:22 pm

    This outfit is absolutely adorable! I know how you feel about the pale legs, I’m nearly translucent in the winter… Good job on the self tanner – you don’t look orange-y or streaky!

  33. 01.29.2012 / 4:48 am

    Cute shoes. Loove the jacket. Nice outfit. Love the braid in your hair too.

  34. 02.18.2012 / 2:28 am

    I absolutely adore those wedges, how interesting, thanks for the intro to Jeffrey Campbell also.Pastels and Black is going to be a hit this spring!
    I. Cant. Wait!
