Lately I’ve been splurging and now have no money for food. That’s what 2 pairs of Lanvin heels, a pair of pumps from Sonia Rykiel, some Miu Miu shoes, a Net-a-Porter order, a Preen leather dress, a Ralph Lauren jacket, an Amy Kaehne cape and some Basso & Brook leggings brings you to: D-E-B-T.
Me and shopping are now officially on a break. But before I did, I also sneaked in a pair of Diana Broussard shoes from LuisaViaRoma, the luxury online store from Florence, whilst they had an extra 20% off already reduced stock. It was a miracle that I got these shoes in my size!
These lattice shoes remind me of the famous YSL cage heels, but will get have more ladies guessing. I looked up Diana Broussard, she has quite an impressive CV. The American shoe designer’s label was launched in 2001. Diana has worked with all the big guns, such as Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, alongside John Galliano and also with Gucci. I love the big heels on these Italian-made shoes. Big heels usually mean longer wear.
This is the day I received the heels at the boutique, I’m wearing the Karla Spetic Maxine top, my favourite vintage jacket (I’ve had it for over a decade!), vintage pants and vintage jewelry and some Miss Sixty pumps, also Italian shoes.
Here’s a closeup of my accessories. The pendant on my necklace was a flea-market find from Paris, the mother-of-pearl bangle was a flea-market find from Zurich (you can see a closer-up picture here), and the skull ring was a recent purchase (also on sale) from Net-a-Porter. I actually bought a pair of Marc Jacobs tweed flats and Marni gold heels as well as the ring but the shoes didn’t fit my irregular feet so sadly I had to return them. *sobs*
I wish I had bought the medium sized ring so I can wear it on my middle finger…but that’s the joy of internet shopping.
Here is a close up of my Vivienne Westwood gold plated bone ring. I love the juxtaposition of the prettiness and the rawness. It also reminds me that all living things come to an end, so make the most of every day. Sorry, that was a little deep…
Here are the new additions to my footwear family. I will try to wear them soon, otherwise they will join the likes of my other shoes, sitting quietly in their boxes on the bookshelf.
Brian Koslow, the founder and CEO of Breakthrough Coaching Inc. once said “Always wear expensive shoes. People notice. ‘ And they sure do.
I’ve decided to stop shopping online for now, because there is nothing better than being able to feel the fabrics (you know how anal I am with me and my fabrics) and trying items on, because of my irregular shape. Don’t get me wrong, I am still addicted to LuisaViaRoma, Net-a-Porter and Outnet, but I seem to lose all sense of direction and self-control when I catch a glimpse of gorgeous shoes, for example, check out these Dsquared’s…
A girl can never have too many shoes. After all, they are what gets us noticed.
