"New Year, New You" is a phrase that's trotted out every January and splashed across the pages of fashion magazines as they advise us on how to lose weight, eat better, and be more stylish. While the new me--the home-owning, fitter, more successful me who knows how to shop wisely--may not materialize right away, the current me can at least take comfort in a twist on that motto: "New Year, New Shoes."
As it turns out, end-of-season designer shoe sales are a goldmine for tiny-footed girls. I found the Nicholas Kirkwood flats I'd been eyeing for months at deep discount. The same with the Maison Martin Margiela booties, which I mentioned as one of my Shopbop sale picks in this post. In both cases, they were the last pairs in my size; it was simply meant to be. Both pairs of shoes have smooth leather soles and are pretty slippery to walk in, so I'm having my cobbler put rubber soles on them before their first wearing.
Have you been shopping the end-of-season sales or treated yourself to a new pair of shoes lately?
P.S. For those who want their own Nicholas Kirkwood tassel loafers, look out for the pink pair in his spring/summer 2012 collection.
