You know when you find something that you absolutely love and you just can’t stand to part from it? Definitely the case with me and this bag – I love it to pieces. It’s an old Mango quilted circle bag with a lovely gold chain and I have been constantly wearing it lately. (I also wore it yesterday with a different outfit, which I’ll post soon.) I do not have any issues with wearing this bag over and over again, but the problem is that it is starting to show it’s age and I will need to buy a new one soon. This outfit, worn last Wednesday, features quite a few of my favorites: my newest leather jacket, an old black knitted dress, my black pashmina scarf and of course, the shoes.
I really love these shoes. They are from Zara Woman and are a gorgeous pair of gold sequined ballet flats. I remember I had been constantly going to Zara and looking at these shoes and waiting and hoping they would be put into the sales. I was patient and waited until after an exam to buy them and they were the last pair too. I bought them half price (in early January, 2012) and have loved them ever since.
Now, they aren’t a pair that I would wear all that often. Nope. But sometimes it’s not about getting the most wear out of something, sometimes it’s a bit more special. Like these shoes. You put them on and it’s like magic. Suddenly everything is a little brighter and better and I’m all happy. Though most shiny gorgeous things have that effect on me. 🙂
Anyways, back to Wednesday. We just went for dinner and drinks nearby so they were ideal (I didn’t have to worry about them getting stepped on and the weather was good – cold, but not rainy)! I posted the photo below on my instagram – I had upped the contrast a bit and I love how shiny the shoes look.
