let the shoes speak for themselves.

9 April 2009

my babies.

Five and a half inches of  pure  p e r f e c t i o n.

My I-wish-I-were-Yves-Saint-Laurent-Tribute sandals.

And I’m proud to call them mine.

[A birthday gift, of course.]

    Fantastic shoes!!!
    I had a huge obsession over Giambattista Valli’s platforms last year – very same spirit as the Tributes – and got an amazing substitute at Topshop! Do you mind me asking where these gorgeous come from?
    Bisous! x

    I like yours better; I’m not a big fan of the “patent”, it’s a little too “stripper”.
    A great way to wear them now is with flat black tights and a floral dress. I’m envious. xo

  31. 10 April 2009 12:46 pm

    Wow–really pretty!

  32. 10 April 2009 2:18 pm

    i really enjoyed your what to wear to the airport entry. fab, fab advice as usual.
    those shoes are killer!
    thanks for your comment 🙂

      Chloe: For my first outfit with those shoes, I plan on going simple: strapless, bodycon LBD with a black blazer that has satin-trimmed lapels. With a statement necklace! =]

    You lucky lucky girl! This is the time where I wish we were real twins, because then we’d have the the same shoe size, the same birthday and therefore the same presents…haha 😀

    Thanks for your comment dear. I hope your rough week got smoothened out and that you are much better. Strut around in your Tributes! I’m sure they’ll bring an immediate smile and a rush of joy (:

    Lotsa blogtwin love (& crazy shoe lust *grabs at your Tribute-clad feet*),
