When I really want something, it wont leave my mind until I pursuit it….I have been pretty fixated on these shoes for the longest time and I even tried to convince some of my male friends to buy the male version since I couldn’t find my size anywhere and this was the only way I could live vicariously through them, but they didn’t do it.
I have been in quite a few countries in the past few months but every time I would call the local Prada store, they either didn’t have this model anymore or my size was gone, which I find odd since I am a European size 40 and I always assumed that was the rarest of sizes, turns out it isn’t at all. The truth is, I was starting to think that I wasn’t finding them for a reason; “Maybe I am not meant to have them?”, “Maybe they aren’t meant for me?”. I consider myself quite a smart shopper, or at least for the past year or so. I used to impulse buy which translated in complete clutter and realizing I didn’t end up wearing certain items more than twice, which I now find repulsive and unacceptable behavior, therefor whenever I want to buy something, specially when its pricy, I think about it for AGES before making my decision. “-Am I really going to wear this more than 10 times?”, “How many different ways can I style these?”, and so on.
I FINALLY found these shoes in my size in London and after a long thought process, I decided they were an excellent buy. They are very “me” when it comes to style, they are a classic, they have a platform so in theory they re a hybrid between a flat shoe and a heel and well, I freaking love them, which in the end is the most important reason of them all.
