Oot and Aboot

Style Snatcher loves Giuseppe Zanotti. When Style Snatcher is bored--granted, not often--we love to go oot and aboot with our old pal Giuseppe. Giuseppe, or more precisely the boots of Giuseppe, has enlivened these odd dull moments with his mad Italiano craftiness.

Here, he has created a white wildebeest boot perfectly suited to our favorite guilty pleasure, pro ballroom dancer Edyta Sliwinska of Dancing with the Stars. We like Edyta because she lets it all hang out, or almost, an occupation that is not foreign to yours very truly. She also wears (stylishly, we might add), a flared leg warmer in an exciting quasi-Western style. If there is some purpose to these seemingly useless items we wait on tenterhooks for a brilliant explanation. But what do we know? We understand the evolution of functional design from A Chorus Line to Monday night television, but if there is some bona fide practicality to the article in question we have been blinded to the point.

The thing is, as much as we enjoy Edyta, we probably enjoy righteous indignation even more. It's amazing what a little bit of epidermis will do to people these days. Your people, not mine.
