(This is the part where I tease any men who might actually read my blog. Right now, they are both confused and intrigued. Cleavage? Awesome. But wait, toes? ... )
Yes, toe cleavage. I think most women understand what this is, even if they've never actually articulated it. Whether it be in a fabulous pair of heels, sexy peep toe wedges, or a comfy ballet flat, toe cleavage always makes the shoe even more flattering.
To be specific, toe cleavage occurs where the vamp of the shoe (the top part of the shoe that goes across the top of your foot, and specifically your toes) is low cut enough to show off the slight "crack" between your toes. (Yikes, this is actually really hard to describe.) Ya know, like a low cut top shows off just your cleavage. And just as with a low cut top, you don't want to show too much cleavage, either. A little goes a long way!
Like I mentioned above, you can also get toe cleavage with a peep-toe, depending on the cut. So in that case, you get the cleavage, plus the toes. Extra sexy!
I've read and heard people complain that toe cleavage is unattractive or tacky. These people are also known as "prudes". Don't buy what they're selling. Toe cleavage is where it's at.
(And while this seems almost perverse to me, a couple of quick pics of my favorite flats ... I always have more toe cleavage on my left foot, because my left foot is smaller! Huh, that's kinda like "regular" cleavage, too.)
And for anyone for whom these pictures truly were perverse, I just have this to say: I'm not that kind of girl!
