Just found these while tossing out old clothes and shoes in the basement. I kept them for over 4 years because they were too pretty to let go.
It's a good thing that I did...
You cannot click anywhere online or flick past a magazine contents page without seeing pastels. It is EVERYWHERE. Retro 50's or sports luxe (see below blog post). Nothing is off limits. It's (or rather we) are all fair game.
Since unearthing this pair and feeling really chuffed with myself, I now have a bone to pick.
You know that style 'expert' that says chuck anything that you've not used beyond 1 year (or 2 or 3) well I would've given her a right slap. I wouldn't have these! Don't get me wrong - for fear of death by clothes drowning, I don't keep everything.
But do not tell me you've not had the 'look-what-I-found' moment. You're randomly cleaning and accidentally find (insert forgotten item) and think "Thank GOD I KEPT THIS"
The feeling is identical to just buying something from a shop brand new. Except you didn't. Course I would love to own the latest must have (must we?) and yea I sighed looking at this mint update - but until Yoox get's em for 70% off in 18 months - I'm sticking to these new/old pastel finds.
Depending on who you ask: This is recycling. It's shopping in your closet or it's just owning too much stuff.
I know I am not the only closet shopper..... (excuse the pun).
ps. I have these shoes in black and white too.
