While doing a project at work, I was on the hunt for printable images. First, I found this:

Gross, right? I normally don’t watermark my images, but this was purchased just for work. Next up, I was led to this:

via Pepperina Press, it’s the cutest fruit crustacean ever! So, of course, knowing the way my mind wanders, you know what picture I found next?

A logical move, right? Ok, fine. I know you’re out there screaming at me “CHER, SERIOUSLY, GET TO THE POINT!” Because hilarious melon lobsters and cat-in-food pics are fun, but they have NOTHING TO DO WITH SHOES.

Oh yes they do. Ye-e-e-e-e-s-s-s-s-s they do….

My wandering brain used its nomadic intelligence to find these next.

via Baking Project, these are gum paste shoes! You can buy a kit and make them with molds and patterns (kind of like cookie cutters) and decorate them however you’d like. But there is one major flaw here: they aren’t chocolate!…

But these are!!!! Via, using a similar mold/pattern technique, UK-choco-shoestinista Frances Cooley, from Bristol, made these almost (but not quite) too gorgeous to eat heels. She discovered a chocolate shoe mould in Belgium….Road trip anyone?

These look identical to my Stuart Weitzman Daisy pumps! Via Are We In Paris Yet? a eagle-eyed blogger spotted these “in the window of maitre chocolatierJean-Paul Hévin in the très chic rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.” (I don’t know what most of those words mean…but I want to go there) Could anything top a pair of MY shoes in chocolate?

Yep. Like Braincell Soup said, “Evocative.”

Pardon me… I have to wander over to uber-touristy spot Ghirardelli’s for some chocolate candies…and ice cream…and a milkshake…and just an entire bucket of melted chocolate.

I’ll have to wear my reeeeeally stretchy pants.

    Combining shoes and food is Heaven! My two favorite things. Yum!

    Too pretty to eat. Too delicious not to try – so maybe just a wee nibble around the heel. . .

    Also, I love that the kitty-in-food picture “totally fits” this storyline!

      I know! I was like…I can’t use this, people will think I’m crazy.

      Then I realized that fact is probably already pretty damn evident and posted it anyways!!
