The NY Now winter retail market and gift show is behind us, and I came home with a ton of photos of cool stuff to share with you here on The ‘Gig; including several excellent additions to our beloved Shark Attack series (one of which you saw right here just last week)!

Push Pin Pumps By Laura Escamilla!
Beautiful shoes can certainly be considered works of art, and in the case of these Hot Pink beauties created from ordinary push pins, that is exactly the case.
These striking Push Pin Shoes (1981), designed by Laura Escamilla, were part of a Public Art Installation called Obsessorize: Common Objects Uncommon Accessories, a joint venture between Madison Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) and students at the SVA 3D Design department.
These shoes were spotted somewhere along Madison Avenue in the upper 70s. The exhibit was co-sponsored by Marie Claire magazine.
Pink Thing of The Day: Size 16 Pink Patent Leather Heels
There’s a Buffalo Exchange store on West 26th Street just a few doors down from the yoga studio that I visit most Saturday afternoons. When I’m a bit early for class, I like to pop in and check out the recent acquisitions. This past Saturday, my eyes popped out of my head when I spotted these Hot Pink Patent Leather Spike Heels. Not only are they absolutely gorgeous, and in perfect condition — the soles look like they’ve never even touched the sidewalk — but they are a size 16! Wow! I can’t imagine who would give them up, but I am sure they will make some lucky drag queen very, very happy!
Pink Thing Of The Day: Katy Perry’s Pink Catsuit and Boots
These Hot Pink custom boots, designed to mimic a pair of cat’s paws, were worn by pop star Katy Perry on her 2014 Prismatic Tour. Created by NYC-based design house The Blonds, the boots were part of a Pink Leopard-Print, Stretch Velvet Catsuit (seen below) worn by Perry onstage.

Pink Thing Of The Day: Eva Gonzalez, The Pink Slippers
With confident handling of a limited palette, Eva Gonzalez (1849 – 1883) elevates a pair of evening slippers into a mysterious and enigmatic portrait of modernity for The Pink Slippers (1880). A crucial element of a woman’s wardrobe, footwear was often fetishized because shoes and slippers were not meant to be seen, hidden as they war under voluminous dresses. Gonzalez emphasizes the intimate nature of these accessories by isolating them within dramatic play of light and shadow. An ethereal reflection is visible on the polished surface upon which the shoes rest.
