Inviting Gravity

Perhaps Canadian peeps already know about this shoe shop, but it is new to me. 

Gravity Pope is a little upscale graduate student in its vibe (OK: very upscale grad student) and I learned of it through In Professorial Fashion.  Here are my picks, for the classroom and beyond (think meta):

Acne

Giraudon

Audley

These boots are not my *favorite,* but I am easily seduced by their label. How could a lit prof not love something that invokes Lady Audley's Secret?
  
And here is the inevitable link to the wonderful Idina Menzel singing "Defying Gravity."  Requisite name dropping: I didn't see Wicked, but I saw Idina from the fifth row, fourth week of Rent, back in 1996.

Not to reject the Pope half of Gravity Pope, here is a link to a rather genius-ly named hair salon: Alexander Pope

You'll recall his Rape of the Lock, which I invoked here.  Oh: and here, too.

Never heard of it till now. But it is west coast. You know how annexed we are from one another :-)

Managed to drive right past Gravity Pope this afternoon, such restraint -- and that was after I'd been to a 40-year retrospective of Fluevog & Friends and had my shoe mojo revved up!
That would be a very lucky grad student, I have to say, and perhaps even one prepared to forego a textbook or two . . .

I like the first pair the best.

By the way, I'm heading to Cape Cod next week (plus Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard). Any recommendations for must-see places/restaurants/shops?

I'm also doing a $100 Shopbop giveaway if you'd like to apply. :)

I love that website. It's definitely porn for shoe enthusiasts.
