The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The thick edge of the wedge

Sort-of-actress/sort-of-singer Jessica Simpson now has a signature shoe line, mostly innocuous, though the "Anna" wedge strikes me as unusually hideous.

[Previous version of this paragraph deleted due to blatant inaccuracy.] Available in sizes 5 to 10; Simpson's official size is a 7½, which doesn't necessarily mean she has a built-in excuse not to be seen in these.

1. I kinda like the shoes-- I think it's the gaudiness that attracts me.

2. She wears a size 10 shoe? But she's a small girl! Imdb says she's 5 foot 3-- that's a bit disproportionate isn't it? (I wear size 11)

3. How did you ever find this link? I am having visions of you running searches on 'Jessica Simpson hot big feet.'

Forget the size 10. This was obtained from a fan page which apparently didn't pay too much attention and obviously neither did I. She does, however, have something of a tendency, at least in photos I've seen, to hang off the front of the shoe, which usually means a combination of very long toes and the desire to be in a smaller size despite them. She's probably not a 10, but I doubt she's the 7½ they claim.

I saw one of the shoes first in a magazine ad; they said the line could be found at Nordstroms, so that's where I looked.

Big shoe size? This is edging uncomfortably close to that "is she really a man?" theory.

You'd be surprised how many people believe that of Ann Coulter, whose shoe size is unknown to me.
