Cockroach Killers

Every time I wear these shoes, I'm told they are “cockroach killers.” At first, I thought that was in reference to the big, square heels. I imagine they could quite effectively crush a bug. I’ve since learned that the pointed toes are the lethal end. They are easily wedged into corners to exterminate the fleeing pests.

Blazer, Love Tree. Tee, Jones New York (thrifted). Skirt, Mossimo. Oxfords, Chelsea Crew. Sunglasses, Girlprops. Necklaces, thrifted and/or vintage. Tassel pendant, Epcot Morocco. Bag, Merona.

Thankfully, I haven’t seen a cockroach in over 10 years. I think my cats keep them at bay (or they just aren’t common in Cincinnati or Sacramento).

Cockroaches: I’m on the lookout for you!

My husband used to call my 90's extra long pointy toe heels corner cockroach killers. I occasionally see a pair of those kind of shoes at the thrift and I wonder what was I thinking. They are very Wicked Witch of the West. LOL
I think these shoes are wonderful. I definitely love the way you style them.

My granddad called pointy toes "winkle pickers" (a winkle is a snail). I have never seen a live cockroach!

I love those shoes!
