Psynopsis Pura Lopez Heels
Psynopsis Pura Lopez Shoes Trussardi 1911 Boots

I would pat my back if could because naturally I feared I would cling on to all 3 pairs… but I didn't. Pair 1 (the 50s stilettos) I loved, but I'm just not masochistic enough to try but stand (and even this for not more than 10 minutes) on these pointy heels. Back into the box. Pair 2 (the black boots) I immediately lusted after, but Sarah crashed my dreams with: 'You look like a hooker.' Okaaaayyy… plus they were even higher, i.e. less walkable. Back into the box. But number 3... Jil Sanders for 50 quid?!? I don't know if there was a pricing error, but what do I care?!

Hi my dear-they are totally gorgeous, you definitely made the right decision to keep those beauties!! xx

Aesthetic Alterations said...

Wow--how to pass up that?! Still, I love the "hooker" boots. I think they're fab!

Dancing Branflake said...

Good choice! Although I do love the other two, I really think safety does come first. Not comfort, but safety.

the nyanzi report said...

Difference in opinion: those black front zipper boots would not make you look like a hooker.

They would look sensational if styled the right way - twinned with rolled up super skinny stone-washed denims and a light floral print loose-fitting top...tucked in, of course. No belt.

nyanzi - I agree and IF they had been a fifth of the price I would probably have started to argue with her, but this way it was the needed push to not buy a pair of pretty pricey boots.

Rosie said...

Those are lovely, you definitely made a good choice there. Can't wait to see how you style them!

drollgirl said...

i love them all! they are gorgeous, but you made a great choice here!!!

Isabel said...

i love all of them but the ones you kept are probably the most classic/wearable ones :)

Vintage Vixen said...

Gorgeous choice, I'd have probably gone for the hooker boots as well as I haven't got a Sarah to advise me. Love your jacket. xxx

vint junky said...

Perfect choice! They're beautiful sabine. And well done you. I applaud your willpower
Xx
Oh cripes, this means that like sarah little koo will be passing remark on mummy's questionable purchases someday, I hadn't thought of that :/ Should be interesting!

Be prepared, Nic, daughters, they are ruthless. (And you can't even get back at them because then they cry - or shout at you.)

Jil Sanders for 50, Sabine?!
*SCREAM!*

Veshoevius said...

Hooker schmooker - I love those black boots - keep!

Fashionistable said...

I agree with David but can see your side of things. Very, very hard call. But £50 for Jill Sanders AMAZING. Xxxx

eugenialejos said...

oh love your blog! I follow you of course! Kisses from porto;)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Oh that would have been a hard choice! I love the boots. Hooker? Really? I don't see it. Guess that says alot about how I dress, huh? :)

But I have to say the Jill Sanders are definitely keepers. Especially for that price!

xoxo

Tanvi said...

i wld have gone with the boots too. Don't see why they wld make anyone look like a hooker! (Sorry Sarah) But Hey - daughters, they are ruthless. (And you can't even get back at them because then they cry - or shout at you.) This is NOT true, right Sarah? :o)

great decision, Sabine!

oh, how cruel can daughters be? (but if you looked like a hooker in those boots, you looked like a hooker - sometimes one needs those there's-no-other-way-around advice, right?)

have a super weekend! xo

Maddy said...

I had to laugh out loud at Sarah's comment! Not sure if they're hooker material, but I love that she doesn't bite her tongue ;o) Great find with the Jill Sanders shoes though I'm with you! I lust after really high stilettos, but if they're not wearable, they're going back in the box!

Girl in Oslo. said...

The black shoes are amazing:)

Have a great day:)

Orchid said...

sexy pair of shoes!!!and yoo did some really great vintage looking phottography...cheers!!!

Harriet said...

Those are sone immense heels! Kind of love the hooker ones, but I *suppose* being able to walk in them is a necessity...

Cloud of Secrets said...

I think you made the right choice, although I'm intimidated by caring for suede. The pumps look edible, like velvety dark chocolate truffles! I'd have a hard time sending back the Pura Lopez stilettos, though. I'll be checking the price on yoox!

It;s always good to have a friend who tells you her truth and helps you decide - we all need that at times (not saying they are always right...) The beauty of shopping online is order 3, select 1 and send others back - perfection!

Excellent choice, dear Lady, but I want them all. LOL;-)
