Advanced Fashion Quiz

One of the items pictured below is a pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs Mary Jane Boots, which retail for $725. The other is a prosthetic leg.



Can you tell which is which?

I was NOT a fan of those shoes-with-fake-socks but I think the ones with the actual sock/legwarmers are even more hideous.

Shudder!

Um...um....how long do I have before I have to put my pencil down?

haha... i kinda wish marc had skipped the "boot" part and just done the shoe. they would have actually been cute! c'mon marc, everyone loves a maryjane

Suzanna Mars said...

Why is Marc still offending with the boot-plus-sock combo? It was bad enough when YSL did it with fur and a stiletto Mary Jane, and then we had Clergerie doing it orthopedically, and now this very special crime against good prosetheses everywhere.

jill said...

oh wow. that is pretty awful.

Miss Lu said...

Ya know, they look weird but I love the mary jane boots.

The fake leg...not so much.

Nick said...

I'm kind of a fan of the fake leg, myself.

oh my god, this just made my whole day. I'm not even going to school today, I'm just going to bask in the post daddylikey glow (wow that sounds gross.)

ChiliLady said...

That's a weird post ;-)
a bit disrespectful to those who must wear Marc Jacobs shoes...

lisa said...

I don't get it - why would you spend so much money for boots that don't look like boots?!

buttonsandstars said...

Hahahahahahahaha, that made my day!
P.S. What a privilige to have been added to the links list! Thats pretty deep...

la petite fashionista said...

hm this is a tricky one.. nice try marc you almost fooled me!

Cygirl said...

Those cannot be Marc Jacobs. They must be S.A.S.'s or similar.

Heather said...

Haha! People would buy either one if it had Marc Jacobs written on the box, methinks...

TINE said...

Hahah.. At first I didn't get it (wow, I'm slow.) But when I did, I couldn't stop laughing.

Laura V said...

see, this kind of thing is exactly why DL is on my daily reading list.

i keep coming back to this post and giggling.

cami said...

this is the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life. I just laughed out loud for about 12 minutes. amazing.

Shit! Fake legs aren't in style this season?! I bought one on Ebay that had a Ralph Lauren Polo monogram on it, and other that had Paris Hilton's toiletpaper stuck to the shoe. Now what am I supposed to do with them?

Joanna Goddard said...

this is HILARIOUS. i think those leg/tights/shoe combos are SO weird and unflattering and not stylish at all. just wear actual tights and shoes, people!

Jane Turley said...

Heather(McCartney)Mills will just about do anything for some free publicity. Please be more discerning about your models in future.
