As the Jak & Jil phenomenon goes, if you’ve got a killer/crazy shoe, you win.
Well if you’ve got YSLs, Louboutins, Alaias, and Balenciagas, we’ll save those for another post. We got another kinda of crazy going on – the cartoon kind. I don’t really own anything crazy/cartoon, but my irises turn a poufy heart shape when I look at them. ❤

I came across Minna Parikka in Helsinki, Finland where I spent about five hours in as a lay-over on a cruise from Stockholm. And like most Finnish designs, her stuff manages to look a kooky cute but lady-like sleek at the same time, just like Marimekko, Alessi and Georg Jensen in their lifestyle/homeware products.
And here are some that talk, lace-up like corsets, and blend in with your stockings.
Minna Parikka also does knitwear, bags, gloves and masks. All just as sweet, but not saccharine – tolerably accented with heart-shapes and bows. Sadly for newly-graduated-and-without-sufficient-financial-support-to-aid-mindless-spending me, everything is priced a scary €200 and upwards.
An aside: Irregular Choice might be what comes to mind for most when I mention crazy shoes, but well.. it is a too much of an uhhh, irregular choice.
