IF THE SHOE FITS,
BUY IT

I’m that type of person who feels identified with Carrie Bradshaw’s quote, which says: ‘I like my money where I can see it, hanging in my closet’. Maybe I won’t spend on certain things and even at this moment I still don’t have a microwave in my apartment yet, but there are two things I like to invest in and that’s shoes and bags, especially the last one.

Although garments are important because they give shape and texture to an attire, I have the firm belief that accessories are the ones that imprint your personality and those with a classic style can be worn in a thousand of different ways never looking aged or old-fashioned. Because of this and the reason that a pair of shoes or a bag will never judge you if you gain or lose weight, I didn’t hesitate to get myself a new pair of summer heels to match my PS11 when I saw that one of my favorite new yorker brands was having a huge sale at Forzieri (30, 40 or 50% off).

I’m actually not looking to justify my purchases, I only need a good excuse to explain why I always end up buying heels when I live in a city where they can’t be worn as much as I would like to (but these sandals are pretty comfortable, I must admit).

Soy ese tipo de persona que se siente identificada con la frase de Carrie Bradshaw, la cual dice: ‘Me gusta mi dinero donde puedo verlo, colgado en mi armario’. Puede ser que no gaste en muchas cosas y no tenga ni horno de microondas en mi departamento todavía, pero hay dos cosas en las que me gusta invertir y es en zapatos y bolsos, especialmente en los últimos.

Si bien la importancia de la ropa radica en que da forma y textura a un atuendo, tengo la firme creencia de que son los accesorios lo que imprimen personalidad y si son de estilo clásico pueden usarse de mil formas sin verse anticuados ni pasados de moda. Es por eso y por la razón de que unos zapatos o un bolso no te van a juzgar cuando subes o bajas de peso, que cuando vi que una de mis marcas neoyorquinas favoritas estaba teniendo unas súper rebajas en Forzieri (30, 40 o 50% de descuento) no dude en hacerme de unos zapatos de verano que combinen con mi bolso PS11.

En realidad no busco excusas para justificar mis compras, sólo necesito justificar el por qué siempre termino comprando tacones cuando vivo en una ciudad en donde no se pueden usar tanto como quisiera (aunque son bastante cómodos, debo admitir).

Life is short, your heels shouldn’t be.’ – Brian Atwood

  2. ¡Hola! Me enamoré de los zapatos y creo en lo mismo que tú, que los accesorios los que dan personalidad al atuendo que una lleva. Saludos.

  3. Totalmente de acuerdo, no necesitamos excusas para justificar nuestras compras… amén!! Por cierto me encantan los zapatos ;) http://klausstrofobia.com/

  4. I totally feel you, ’cause I like to spend money on things that are supposed to work longer than e.g. t-shirt. So, shoes, bags or coats are the most expensive things in my closet :)!

    • You’re right about coats! I used to live in a city with a very warm weather and I don’t have a proper wool coat – definitely need to invest in one! :D x

  9. It’s okay to spoil yourself with things that make you happy :) If buying that pair made you happy, then you don’t have to feel guilty!
