I don't know why I didn't buy those delicious platforms, I'm totally kicking myself! haha. Whoever got them for ten quid must be so chuffed.

Great shoes!! I'm now really wishing I had snapped them up. And the Sart book is a really good buy, I have it and it never fails to entertain me

Sonya Mantere said...

I'm dying over those shoes right now. I concidered buying them too many times but never did. Now I'm lurking them on ebay :S. Lucky you. <3

i can only agree, i'm always psyched when you update. you have such great taste and such a good eye for fashion. a lot of the stuff you post is quite minimal and i love how inspiring and actually wearable the outfits are. but why don't we see YOUR pretty face anymore?? where have YOUR outfit posts gone??? a bunch of love, kathrin

Electro Geisha said...

elisabeth said...

Those shoes are cute statement shoes. I want to someday own a copy of that book.

I have that book and it is good reference and inspiration for certain gloomy uninspiring days.

hahaha, I love your strategy! I'm definitely as sad. I've spent my last $50 on a pair of boots and lived of instant noodles for a week and a half. But nothing beats the feeling of scoring a pair of $180 leather boots at a fraction of the cost. I would put them on while I eat the noodles, to justify my spent money.
