My Balenciaga Love affair continues

July 4, 2010

I am in the middle of renovating my new office and home and if there is one instant way to kill a shopping buzz, it’s to take a look at all the construction quotations and costs — which is what happened to me last week… Today though, I had to go buy a gift for a baby shower…  I swear, I should wear those horse blinders especially since it is sale season…

I made a mistake by strolling past the Homme et Femme store on my way back to my car.   I may love Balenciaga bags but I also have a thing for their shoes more especially when they are on sale 🙂  They had a few babies on display.  So I thought, ‘Hmm.. just check if they have my size, no harm in that?’ lo and behold, of course they had sizes for my giant feet  🙂  So, I grabbed myself a pair of new Balenciaga platform sandals at 40% off

I need to indulge, it’s my birthday month (ha! don’t you just love that I have an excuse for everything?) and my serious marathon training officially starts tomorrow (18 weeks til NYC!) so while my toenails are still alive, why not?  😉

I swear Bal shoes are really comfy (at least the platform ones) and feel even more comfortable when they’re marked down…  I wasn’t completely selfish, I grabbed the hub a pair of Marigela’s on sale too.

I love homme et femme… I just really should stop passing by – good thing they were on sale  🙂

    Very nice Ina. Every now and then we’re entitled to pleasure shop. And I know for a fact that buying construction materials is not pleasurable – haha.

    Sorry for the hijack – but since Balenciaga was formerly a Spanish brand…vamanos Espana!!!
