Miu Miu Stitched Sandals for My Birthday

by jennine on February 28, 2011

miu miu stitched sandals

It’s not everyday I purchase a pair of luxury shoes that aren’t on sale, but hey, tomorrow is my birthday. Because of the IFB conference, I hadn’t gotten around to spending much of my Christmas money either, so listen to me justify. How embarrassing.

Oh dear. Anyway, I really wanted a pair of sandals for the upcoming spring. Nothing like a cold winter to make a girl long for skipping around the streets in a hot pair of shoes to spruce up even the most casual of outfits. Especially since now that I’m not working from home any longer and my morning commute is doable in event the most spindly of heels, getting a pair of heels like these was high on my list. For heaven’s sake, I used to walk to work in 4″ heels on the hills of San Francisco, the flat streets of Manhattan are a cake walk.

The salesman at the Miu Miu boutique in Soho asked why I didn’t get the runway shoes, honestly, I was thinking of getting a pair of ‘investment’ heels that could be worn without putting an exact date on them. As much as runway is gorgeous, looking at a pair of shoes and being able to list off the season is not my favorite thing to do…however, the hot pink and flesh tones of their current season is pretty hot…maybe if an exciting project comes up…we’ll see.

I love the stitching on these shoes, and the hand painted stain, this pair seems to have a lot of love put in to it. Which is why they are my birthday shoes. Hopefully the rain lets up today so I can wear them tomorrow.

If you’d like a pair of your own, they’re selling them at Saks Fifth Avenue online, even in white. I had to go half a size down, but man, are they nice in real life!

Spread the Love!

LOVE the shoes. Happy happy birthday!

Wow!!! Those are beautiful!! I had to stop buying heels entirely, my job doesn’t allow them so it’s all a waste. I only get to wear the ones I do own at weekends and it’s quite a bummer. Hope you show us some gorgeous outfit pictures! :)

No need to justify a birthday purchase, it’s your special day so you should splurge! Happy birthday (a day early).

I like what you said about going for an investment shoe rather than what’s in this season. That’s my approach to all fashion and I think it’s sensible, eco-friendly and fiscally sound.

Gorgeous and happy birthday ;) …they are a true investment piece …very 70′s, very fab!

Gorgeous shoes. I felt the same way when I bought my first pair of really high-end shoes (Prada booties last fall)-didn’t want anything that would seem dated or easily identifiable a couple seasons from now.

Happy birthday!
