Earlier this week, I wrote about a “Blog Writer Dress” that, in the words of Racked NY editor Izzy Grinspan, might make her “look like a Victorian orphan.” Over on Fashionista, Leah Chernikoff also took issue with the dress, pointing out that both the style of the dress and its accompanying description was insulting and showed a lack of understanding of what bloggers actually do all day. (Don’t get me wrong… I’d be happy to go out for cupcakes with all our readers, but that is sadly not a requirement of my job.)
Now, The Frisky has a photo of Stuart Weitzman’s “Blog” shoe, which appears at left here. Personally, this blogger doesn’t find black round-toe pumps to her liking, but any other bloggers want to weigh in? Ideally, if I were working from home I’d be wearing flip-flops, but these shoes look a little more “conservative political candidate” than “person who spends all day writing things on the internet” to me. Also, they would look horrible with the blog writer dress.
