My specific role as an intern is to work with two of the fashion assistants and our fashion market director in keeping track of the high-end designer samples we call in for shoots. This means I'm the first in the office to see runway looks from designers like Prada, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. Pretty freakin rad. Though my market is specifically clothing, I've recently deduced that my real passion in editing lies with accessories.
The above photo is of my favorite piece I've come across all summer: the almighty Miu Miu glitter booties. They are the perfect specimen of feminine statement bootie and I NEED to make them mine. Firstly, they're entirely covered in silver glitter. Enough said there. Next, I'm still having a mint green moment and I adore the color paired with silver. Finally, the illusion of a strappy sandal over what would be your glitter-covered foot AND that curved heel?! Not to mention, they look pretty comfy.
A similar style is being sold at Neiman's for $890, so I can only imagine these are about the same price. A girl can dream, though. I did snag my Spring 2006 Miu Miu sandals for $60 at a consignment shop last summer. If my luck persists, maybe they'll be mine in another five years...
Peace, Love and Neon,
