A new ‘it’ shoe is here, and it’s the Balenciaga satin knot slide. A new shoe cult taking over fabulous feet worldwide.
WHY IS IT SO FABULOUS
Well, simply because its so luxurious. It’s padded silk, in lilac, white or black. (NOTE: they do actually come in leather too.) But whatever you go for, its going to be hard to find, thus making it even more wanted. At £385, its dear, and that’s be honest, they’re lilac, and silk! A disaster just waiting to happen. But that’s just another one of those fashion risks it seems I am just too happy to take.
When you find a style of show that speaks to you, one that talks the same language, oozes the same vibes, you have to go for it. These are going to be the shoe that’s in every post this Summer, the pair that carry me through day to night. The ones that while at an event everyone is painfully just about standing in their 5inch’s and it will be my Balenciaga’s that steal the show. This is because a shoe like this needs confidence, and it comes from the women wearing them, she has to be daring, someone who doesn’t actually really care what others thinks, and someone ahead of the game.
HOW TO MAKE THEM POSSIBLE
My habit needs funding, and what’s the source? Selling. That’s my clothes not my body. I sold my black Gucci Princetown mules on Vestiaire, worn once (I know, this was the moment that changed it for me, simple black shoes just aren’t me at the moment, I need sass) and they then paid for these new beauties. Clever hey.
MORAL OF THE STORY
Buy sassy. Sell to fund. Clothes that is again.
