I'VE GOT MY NEW SHOES ON
|Zara top, Topshop skinny jeans, Isabel Marant boots, Essie 'Exposure' polish|
Well, this month I made rather a big purchase, it has to be said. Despite my smug face, I sadly cannot pretend such splurges are de rigueur in my life - one day, one day! I had seen the Isabel Marant 'Dicker' boots (I know, I didn't choose the name) on Net-a-Porter whilst I was on holiday in Spain, and I knew that they would sell out in the click of a stacked heel. And sure enough they did!
I trawled the internet searching for said boots and at last came across them in Australia at The New Guard in Adelaide (http://www.thenewguard.com.au/).
The lovely sales people shipped them over, dealt with my every panicking question about customs charges and VAT (suffice to say, belatedly, I found out these charges were extortionate and will NEVER be doing this kind of thing again) and solved my every whimpering post-discovery-of-charges questions. Their patience could not be surpassed!
But all's well that ends with a pair of Isabel Marant boots. Taupe suede, with a perfectly walkable heel (this from a girl who carries a change of shoes to work) and somehow they do just go with everything as everyone promised, Dead Fleurette included!
I shall be wearing them to death in Parisian-esque simple outfits day in day out.
EDIT: Despite seemingly having sold out everywhere, I stumbled upon a new stockist today - Ruby and Tallulah
