Shopping update from New York: summer sales have started! Although it’s only the first mark-down of the season, most of the shoes at Barneys, Saks, Bergdorf, etc. are marked down 30-40%. The good news is that I haven’t spent a fortune. The bad news is that I haven’t spent a fortune because I’ve hardly found anything to buy. Here is a sad journal of my trip through Barneys shoe department, a stop at Zara, and later, through the Century 21 shoe department.
Barneys’ sale racks: this is the style that I’m going for – strappy, gladiator-type sandals.
Ann Demeulemeester: Too high an incline and too many straps on my legs.
Givenchy: I love the straps, but again, the heel is too high.
Not sure who designed these: I love the fuchsia and the stacked heel, but it’s STILL too high.
At Zara: very cute (and well-priced) wedge sandals. Again, too high for me.
Chloé blue leather wedges: the height is right, but they don’t have my size.
Chloé grey patent wedges: not my favorite color, but these could work.
Modeling the grey pair: the perfect heel for me! Sadly, they only have one pair, which are a half-size too big.
Don’t cry for me just yet: I did manage to find a Carven cotton dress (on sale!) that fits like a dream : )
Have a great weekend!
