I have a confession to make: I am an avid Sea of Shoes folllower. The gorgeous teenager, Jane Aldridge, is the proud owner of shoes-to-drool-for. This chick is literally too cool for school. My recent penchant for Maison Martin Margiela shoes was under the direct influence of the Texan beauty. Recently I saw her photo and fell in love (yet again) with her shoes!!! These MMM boots are just divine – super-soft, bunched at the ankle, cone-heels and look like sandals. She is wearing a vintage men’s shirt- so young, so chic.
On my recent tour of Singapore shopping malls, I paid visits to every single ZARA store, much to my hubby’s amusement (and exasperation). It became almost religious, I had to enter every Zara shop. Walking in Zara, admiring all the clothes, I was a little girl in a candy shop. It is because Melbourne is devoid of this awesome chainstore! *sobs* I bought many pieces from Zara and will be sharing them with you in the near future.
There was one thing I wanted to buy but could not…
At first when I saw these Maison Martin Margiela-esque shoes, I was almost seizuring with excitement, because they appeared to be descendants of the MMM boots Jane had (which I could not find anywhere in Melbourne)…But my exuberance died when I saw the shoe size: 37, one size too small! I nearly squeezed into them, but I knew it was not meant to be. For the next few days, I dreamt of the shoes. So off we went to visit the store again and hoping the booties were still there. I would have bought them anyway and had them stretched in Melbourne. But they were nowhere to be found. I wept.
Last night, I stumbled across Assad Mounser‘s website and saw her wearing THESE shoes! Lucky girl! She obviously got in early!
