Hi there. Kathryn, here. *waves*
I hope you're all having a nice Memorial Day weekend!
I had to head into the office for a bit over the weekend to get some work done, but afterwards I swung by my little home-away-from-home, South Coast Plaza.
Upon my visit, I stumbled upon what I believe will be my next bucket list item.
Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Platform Sandal (shown in nude)
It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside. I'm not one of those who can easily hide. I don't have much money, but...boy, if I did. I'd buy a big house where we both could live.
In short, omg. Oh em gee. Ever since I bought my beautiful Louboutins, I've started looking at shoes in a whole new way. In other words, I think I'm addicted to Nice Shoes.
Who knew Christian Louboutin was a gateway shoe?
Anyway, I'd been looking at the Tribute Sandals online for awhile, and I made it a point to swing by the YSL Boutique to take a look-sie in person. Man, everyone...and I mean everyone, was speaking Mandarin. I'm pretty sure I overheard one of the sales associates speaking Mandarin to one of his clients. I don't know what was going on, but I do know that I laid my eyes on these pretty, pebbled leather beauties and gasped.
And when a shoe makes you gasp, you know it's serious business.
The heel is (gulp) 5.5" inches high. Yeah. But believe it or not, they're comfortable. I could actually walk in them pretty comfortably. I think the 1.5" platform helps with the comfort level. And the leather - the leather! - is nude, leaning towards the pale pink tones. And holy crap, do I love pink. It's a very neutral-y type of pale pink that I think will go with a lot of things in my closet. And these seem to be pretty iconic, as far as strappy platform sandals are concerned. So I think they'll be a good investment, especially in terms of cost-per-wear.
I guess I tend to be really cheap about the way I spend a lot of money on something.
I'm in love. I noticed the boutique had quite a selection of Tribute Sandals on sale, so I'm hoping I can watch these (like the stalker I am!) and see if (IF) they go on sale.
Or maybe I'll just go rob a bank. Stay tuned. *wink*
Thank you all for reading!
