Jessica Simpson: Heels for Every Occasion?

You know FASHIONOTES is all about the quirky heel, but we’re just not too sure how to feel about Jessica Simpson’s latest. The singer turned actress turned designer recently tweeted that the Jessica Simpson Collection is expanding to include… flipper heels. Jessica announced via tweet, “Scuba gear coming soon for @jscollection heels for every occasion” complete with a winking emoticon and a picture of aqua-blue flippers with a stiletto heel.


We’ve traced the origin of these High Tide Heels back to Belgian artist Paul Schietekat, who created a series of high-heeled flippered-footwear for an exhibition in 2006. While some feel these shoes are merely an eco-awareness comment on global warming and extreme climate change, we’re curious to see if Jessica will be wading in ‘stylish’ waters and adding these to her $1 billion fashion line.
