We love it when we receive PR emails:
“Ariana Grande Wears Ruthie Davis”
First, we literally think that Ariana is wearing another woman. Because it’s the entertainment business and that wouldn’t be considered odd.
Second, our curiosity is piqued because the average someone couldn’t afford whatever Ruthie has to offer, nor would necessarily desire to own any of said items.
Well, Ariana wore some Ruthie Davis boots in her new music video “breathin”.
Specifically, she wore the Mickey in black.
While we loves some hooker boots, there is no way we’d be able to walk without assistance. Perhaps this is why celebrities have entourages—to help them walk in ridiculous items like these.
Notice how Ariana is lying down in those boots. Because she’d break her ponytail if she fell over.
By the by, the Mickey will only set you back $645.
Let's play a game. Let's see what the cheapest item is on Ruthie's website.
On sale for $199.
WTH? We could make these in our garage for $2.
We’re not quite sure that even if we had “f&ck you” money that we would ever blow $199 on a pair of shoes. Why? We would damage any high-priced item in a matter of minutes. Scratches, scuffs, broken something. It’s worse than Murphy’s Law. It’s Crack Wise Law: not only would a high-ticket fashion item be ruined, we’d probably catch some unknown, uncurable disease from it and die. Or we’d somehow injure someone else and get sued.
That’s why “Crack Wise Wears Cheap-Ass Clothes”. There's an PR news release for ya!
Haus of V is a creative collective that shares a similar mindset -- with a twist.
