WOW..i'm impressed! do you have the CJ shoes from the CJ ad with the girl in the french maid outfit? it's one of my favorite shoes back then.

HG said...

Hi lee,
Thanks for your compliment :) Sorry, don't have the metallic anklestrap in Bourdin's classic photo. I've seen it several times for sale; perhaps it should be added too? :)

30 years ago owned Baccara - "Auteuile" and others. Wonderful to see my favourite shoes again. Didn't realise I had a design classic at the time, don't know what I did with the shoes!. Also, looking for suede black high heel court shoe with diamante bow. Now buying on eBay!

Hi Briggitte,

Glad you can appreciate these images. CJ was so far ahead of his time :)

The mission of this blog is to digitally "Time Capsule" what once THE designer to wear~

Hey, I just picked up a pair of CJ shoes at a yard sale for $2. Question: there is what seems to be an "extra" pair of loose straps. What are these for? Did CJ ever supply straps just to be worn as anklet straps with no practical function?? The shoes are high heels, pointed close toe and a have an attached single strap that crosses over the top of the arch only. Any ideas what the additional straps could be for?
