When you stop looking, you find it


Happens with shoes just like it does with men....

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled
Blazer: >Silence & Noise via UO (mine is XL) . Shorts: DIY cut offs (try these in 2 sizes up). Tee: Western Spirit (cut off the sleeves). Hat: Trash & Vaudeville. Shoes: Chloe (found here). (Similars: these. Block heels sandals or here).  Nails: Topshop 'Gone Fishing' (on 2nd bottle).  Lips: MAC 'Lady Danger' So Chaud is another good orange.

It was one of the 'ones that got away.'   After months years of stalking eBay and googling word variations on 'chloe triple strap shoes' - I gave up on finding these.

I tried.

Then these popped up on Yoox.  I literally did this  :- O    I thought Chloe stopped making these so where the eff did these come from?? There's more from that old season:  these and lower versions.

You stop looking.  It turns up.  Even if it's years later.

This must have happened to you. Clothes or men, the principal is the same I've noticed.


  1. This happened to me once (with shoes) in the clearance aisle of Nordstrom rack. The "ones that got away" found me:)

    Love the lip color & the hat!

  2. let um go they come back in the correct season to make you look stellar... I like that


  3. Wow those shoes are utterly amazing. and they match the blazer perfectly. With your words of wisdom--i'll stop looking for the perfect guy. Maybe he'll just waltz into my life unannounced. let's hope so :)
