It’s ridiculous to lust over a pair of shoes for months, yet that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. The culprit? These gorgeous swallow and cat Mary Janes from Miu Miu’s SS’10 collection.
Then, out of the blue, Forever 21 released their own versions of these Mary Janes back in September (I think). No cats or swallows there, but they were apparently sold out within hours in Manila. We gals in Cebu never stood a chance.
But you know how they say that when you think about something long and hard enough, it’ll come to you? Well, I never stopped thinking about it, and one day, a Forever 21 pair was just there on eBay – brand new and in my size (which is miracle enough, mind you, with my midget feet) with no other bidders. Never mind that it was going for $70; I didn’t even give it a second thought.
That’s the best I could do with the F21 label, sorry.
So I am now the proud owner of one of the most elusive and most coveted shoes EVER. They may not have cats or swallows, but they do have pretty little polka dots. My shoe-buying year is complete.
Now to learn to walk in ‘em nearly-6-inchers. Tee hee.
I’m on a high…
