They're black. They're made from leather. They were the last pair and in my size. I guess that you won't be surprised when I tell you that I used that last fact as an excuse à la "it was a sign from above" -- my mom agreed with me, my dad just rolled his eyes (but later admitted that he loves them as much as I do).
So meet my new babies, glued to my feet ever since I took them home with me from the Chanel store in Antwerp last week. Comfortable yet stylish, perfect to take every casual and everyday look to a higher level. Not to forget that there's only a subtle reference to the brand, always a plus.
