Tried But Failed (Probably A Good Thing...)

Its been about 3 weeks since I broke my shopping ban and I'm not gonna lie, I sorta went crazy. I'll post my splurges as they come in since many were ordered online. In the meantime, I thought I would do a post about shoes that failed to make it into my closet during the recent shopping spree.

YSL Tribtoo Slingbacks: I decided to give the Tribtoos another try since I wanted a backup plan in the case I couldn't get my hands on a pair of Alti pumps. While the heel height is extremely sexy, the huge platform made me feel like I was walking around with a loaf of bread on my feet.

CL Paquita: I had one helluva time trying these shoes on. I was literally sweating by the time I was done. My feet are wide and these just dont work but if you have narrow feet, these aren't too bad (but it wouldn't be a bad idea to wait for the sales since the price tag is kinda steep...).

YSL Platform Sandals: Cute but definitely nothing to swoon over. The middle strap also sorta bugged me. It wasn't exactly centered on my feet and the whole look ended up a bit sloppy.

Fendi booties: I was super excited to try these on but once on, I wasn't as ecstatic about them. Not good, not bad, not worth $770. Again, something to look for during the sales.

Oh can't wait to see your purchases!
God Fendi has beautiful shoes (really loving all the shoes i've been seeing from them lately), those YSL ones are amazing!
Wish I could jet set to the US when the sales are on!

Hi Diamonds! I'm anxiously awaiting 4 packages and I'll update as soon as I get them :)

I thought that too about the tribtoos, except I didn't put it as humorously as a loaf of bread, lol. It's something about that hidden platform plus the slingback, I don't know. I'm still dying to get my hands on a pair of regular tribute sandals and I almost bought a pair of the platform ones in navy on rue la la but they got swiped out of my cart before I could decide. Lately I've been trying to buy more conservative shoes for work but it's so difficult, I hate being so BORING!

Yea...everytime I wear my Tribute MJs or Vera slingbacks to work, I feel a little self-conscious so I try to pair them with my more conservative dresses.
