I left my heart in San Francisco but brought back some Marc Jacobs
I'm a bit fed-up in the moment, had some rubbish news about an existing health condition . . .which is making my weight problems increase :( So I am taking comfort in my shoe collection!
My most expensive and treasured shoes are a pair of Marc Jacobs that I bought in San Francisco in November 2004. As I've said before, I'm not materialistic at all, I just love shoes!
It was our first visit to America and San Fran was our first choice to get a taste of the American Dream. I have so much to say about this city, it is such an amazing place to visit that I will have to write a separate post about it. Now back to the Marc Jacobs.
As you know, if you go to America then you definitely have to set aside some time for a little bit of shopping. I indulged my GAP obsession, browsed the Macy's aisles and visited the Levis flagship store but planned prior to the visit to also treat myself to some designer shoes. I'm not a experience fashionista so can't provide a serious and thorough explanation on why I chose Marc Jacobs over Jimmy Choo or Manolos. I just simply like his designs and style.
So, on one of the shopping days planned into our week's itinerary, I visited Saks Fifth Avenue to chose my first pair of designer heels. The Shoe Salon was in the basement and what I really like about this store was that whether you were wearing designer clothes or combats and flip flops (like me) you were treated as a valued customer. It didn't take me long until I chose some gorgeous blue suede heels with gold crossover strap detail to take home with me. They are a pleasure to walk in or just perfect to take out of the box to look at. Whilst they really can 'dress up' a pair of skinny jeans, the only problem I have is that I have yet to find the perfect dress or suit to wear with them. Any suggestions?
