Yves Saint Laurent: A $60 tribute.
YES I AM BACK from my self-imposed hiatus of laziness and work drama. I’ve just been really tired lately and the only free time I have to write entries are usually only on weekends but most of the time, my weekends are spent with my family (there’s nothing like some family love!).
I do feel guilty for not blogging here but please understand I take a lot of pride in this website, I am very particular (simply put, I am ANAL as hell!) with the content I put up – I shoot all my images (unless they’re from a fashion magazine, of course) and make sure they look pretty awesome before publishing each entry. It takes a lot of work so honestly, I would rather take my time to write a really good entry rather than create some slapstick entry in ten minutes with crappy images stolen from google etc.
OK that’s enough WHY-DOES-ILYANA-TAKE-SO-FRICKIN’-LONG-TO-BLOG? for today’s entry. Let’s talk about a slightly fiercer topic close to my heart: SHOES.
Their shoes, duh – like it wasn’t that obvious already.
Both of them are wearing the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Two pumps; MK’s wearing the black leather version while lil’ Ashley’s going for a more subdued look with her grey suede ones. Either way I’m JEALOUS. I have been obsessed with these shoes ever since I saw Becki Newton aka Amanda on Ugly Betty wearing them on the show.
It’s just the combination of the thin, splindly 5 inch heel which is made possible to walk in due the platform at the front and the round toe that’s making me go absolutely ballistic for these shoes! Of course like all designer shoes, the YSL tribute two pumps don’t come cheap – they’re about a thousand bucks+++ a pair *whistles*
Now if you’ve got that kind of money or perhaps have a really fashion-conscious socialite for a mother who’s willing to dress you in the latest designer togs, good for you girlfriend BUT FOR US POOR MORTAL SOULS WHO CAN ONLY DREAM OF OWNING A PAIR OF SUCH BEAUTIFUL SHOES, THERE’S ONLY ONE THING WE CAN DO MY FELLOW SISTERS IN HARDSHIP: We wait for the high street labels to create shoe knock-offs.
In this case, the shoe gods have answered our prayers in form of these Miss Selfridge Eleanor pumps which is blatantly a YSL tribute two rip-off but with a $60 price tag hey who’s complaining! The shoes actually cost $99 but lucky me here got them on sale and in the last pair in my size too. Aah, the shoe gods must be smiling upon me.
I know, I know. I have this totally weird habit of shooting things in my garden lol and it’s not as if my garden isn’t pretty! I think it makes a nice natural backdrop against er, everything else haha.
The Eleanor pump only comes in one color: a lovely deep eggplant shade and my god, won’t it look hot when paired with some dark skinny jeans?
