I have had these beauties for almost a year now and I realize that have never given them a proper introduction. So as my closet is literally packed with shoes, I decided it is time to start telling their stories (as I previously did with my Chloe boots). And trust me, some of them have got some beautiful tales to tell. Let’s call this one “The High Heeled and Unexpected”.
The first time I see these shoes is on a streetstyle pic (on top of this page) with no mention of the brand anywhere. I don’t know how to search for them without as much as a name so I start asking around but none of my friends can help me with it. As they are probably waaaay over my budget anyway, I quickly give up.
Until I am lured over to ‘The Corner‘ by some prolongued summer sales. And what do I find there? Some flat sandals that are made of the exact same fabric and with the exact same embellishements. I think by myself “this can’t be true“, so I immediately click the brand (Vionnet) and there they are: my high heeled dream shoes at 60% off! Whaaaaaaa – at that point I start screaming of happiness (yes I can be that shallow, shoes make me happy). To top it off, this collection is a collaboration with none other than Giuseppe Zanotti. If I buy these, I will have something by his hand on my feet – totally freaking out at this point. So without further consideration, I place the order and a few days later the shoes arrive at work.
Sadly enough they are too big, so I immediately go back online to check if they are still available in size 38. And yes, luckily they are! Another few days later the second box arrives at work and I can start breaking them in. They hurt a little when you stand up for a long time – but hey, when were high heels ever designed to get you through the night?
