After months of buying almost nothing, I seem to be going a bit mad on ebay and in the sales at the moment. The latest addition is these Miu Miu courts, bought secondhand and ridiculously cheap. I originally saw them on a customer in the shoe shop where I worked circa 2009 and fell in love with the way she had styled them- all black, a bit grunge-y and the perfect contrast to the primness of the shoe. We actually stocked the higher-heeled version at work and I tried them on multiple times afterwards trying to convince myself I could wear them, but they were ridiculously high and spindly so I reluctantly gave up on them. I never came across the lower ones, either in the shops at the time or on ebay afterwards but I always had them at the back of my mind (I'm nothing if not loyal to my shoe crushes). Clearly though, they were (eventually) meant to be, and the three of us can now live happily ever after.
