The other night, when delayed jet lag set in and I found myself wide awake @ 2:00 a.m., I got sucked into the vortex that is Net-a-Porter.com. You know you've been there, girls, and it's a scary place. I found myself underwhelmed, at first, by the shoe choices, but then I found a pair I liked, and another.. I started playing the Fairy Godmother game: your fairy godmother gives you £500 (approx $800 USD) to spend on all the shoes you'd like. Then you change the rules: Okay, £1000. I'm now making it £2000, for as many shoes as I can get for that price.
First off, I love the Burberry (£325, above),
but hate hate hate the Burberry platform sandals (at £525! nearly twice the price). This doesn't make any sense! I wouldn't pay five POUNDS for them, and wouldn't wear them if my fairy godmother put a gun to my head.
The Loubs are £655, Miu Miu is £320, and my favourite, Marc Jacobs, is ONLY £345. At that rate, with my £2000 cap, I could get 5 pairs, and still have a spare shoe.
In the bootie department, Charlotte Olympia's Ziggy is £655, The Louboutin Paola is £750, and the Zanottis will set you back £570. Of course you'll need a converter to figure it out in your currency.
I've got tons & tons more to show you gals, but I've got to make an improvised coconut 'key lime' cheesecake for tonight's dinner @ our friends, scoot across town to meet a blog friend I haven't met in reality yet, get a haircut, and I still haven't done a proper street style post!
Which of these would you choose? Or are you holding out for the next installment? If you've got a favourite on their site, please send me the jpg (& the price). I might swap it for the Marc Jacobs pair. More to come: I may have been underwhelmed at first, but now, the more I look, I am overwhelmed by choice. Thank you to Net a Porter, for the photos.
