Oh dear! I’m not sure if I have to curse or thank my dear fellow blogger Sugar-Kane for introducing me to Saara Kivimäki. Saara is a shoemaker and DJ. Her shoe designs are love childs of sneakers, clogs and all sorts of festive trinkets — and those genes provide surprisingly sweet looking footwear. The attitude and edge of these does not come from toughness, but the contrasts — girly colors and ruffles combined to clumpy shapes and not too obvious sneaker details. They look fresh — and also very wearable, and they would complement my incoherent style perfectly. I’m totally seeing myself next summer bare legged, wearing a short tent dress or such and a pair of coral ruffle wedges… Love at the first sight!
