No shoes!

I couldn't fall asleep on Sunday night.  It was past midnight and I couldn't get comfortable.  The room was too hot with the heater on and too cold without it (note to self get an electric underlay).  So what does one do when they cannot sleep?  One plays solitaire on their iPhone OR browses eBay on the evil eBay app.  Australia must be the only place left in the world that doesn't have a Zara store (although rumours have been swirling for years that it's opening "by the end of the year").  I think the story is that the family that owns 80% of the chain stores in Australia has the licence for Zara Australia and doesn't want to damage his other brands, so he refuses to open stores down here.

It also occurred to me that I haven't purchased a pair of shoes allllllllll year!  I guess the YSL Lauren that I purchased in December did their job in making me feel guilty about such a huge splurge (but they were 50% she says!).  I am so in love with these boots that no other shoes have been able to come close.  I have worn them to death!  Cost-per-wear-theory-winner!

So what does a girl who hasn't purchased a pair of shoes all year do?  She purchases TWO pairs whilst battling insomnia!

I've had my eye on these for ages.  The chances that a seller had both in my size up for the auction at the same time was just an omen.  Don't you think?


  1. Those heels are just gorgeous- love the colour! I just wish my boyf wasn't the same height as me- I have to wear flats most of the time. Boo.

  2. DEFINITELY an omen!!! Those shoes with heels and without heels reminded me that my friend came up with the best idea in the world -convertible shoes - heels that can convert to flats! right!?!?
    way to go on the run :) it ended up clearing up yesterday so I got a good run in :)

  3. The shoes are lovely <3
    xoxo :D

    Wow, those shoes are amazing.

    Also, I wish it was cool enough for the heater in my part of the US. We are burnin' up over here.

  5. Just want to say thanks for all the comments you left on my blog.
    You are awesome :)

  6. Not sleeping is the worst. I am glad you got creative with it. Can I tell you how jealous I am that you are summer around the corner?! I WISH we had it again in the states.

    xo M

  7. When i can't sleep I sometimes think about shoes too! It's definitely an omen, those are amazing!




  9. You are funny....have never heard of that method of getting off to sleep - better than counting sheep I would imagine!!x

    I don't know about shipping, but there is a new rumor that Zara is devloping an online store so you may be able to purchase direct within a few months. They are amazing shoes ... reminds me of Louboutin Petal shoes.

  11. It was so a sign you should get them. Love the ruffle heel. So many great ways to wear it!
