Why don't I like these?

I'm not sure;

But when I saw these Jeffery Campbells in gold, my first thought was eeeeew. I don't understand why, it has all the elements I usually adore in a shoe. The heel is lovely and reminds me of seashells, the ruffles have a luxurious feel about them, and I'm a sucker for a peeptoe anything. So why does it make me want to screech like a banshee and shield my eyes in terror?

I think it's too much for me. I'd have the seashell heel or just the ruffles, but not both. Or maybe it's just not my personal style... which is strange because I just bought a pair of peeptoe cutout booties in bright red with a bow on the front. I'm all for a feminine shoe, but I think this one's just too costume-y for me.
