Best buy ever



I don't wear these Isabel Marant boots as often I'd like due to the fact that they're made of suede and I'm careful not to ruin them too much.

They're at least 3-4 years old, were called "Dake" at the time and are one of those possessions I put in the in the pantheon of  my "best buys ever".
I also own the black leather version of the boots that I got later but these are my favourites.

I don't know what's about them, really the shape is banal especially now that there are copies at every corners, but whenever I put them on and whatever's the rest of my outfit, I feel good. 

I'm not joking they have the power to make me feel cool, even when I 'm wearing such a basic outfit as a trench (Zara), navy cashmere knit (Zara), grey scarf (COS), jeans (H&M) and Balenciaga Day.

Oh, you make me feel so bad about my shoes... I'm not careful, the heels is pretty much ruined.. yeah yeah.. but i know what you mean about the power to make you feel cool. I always feel great when wearing them!

That is such a neat looking trench. Anything that elevates your mood to cool level whenever you put them on is worth it :)

I just bought them and I feel exactly the same way :)

It's so true.Great shoes and bag always make the outfit.I can put a simple t-shirt and jeans on, but combined with my Bal bag and shoes, I do feel like a million dollar:)

It's a basic outfit, but you still manage to look amazing! Love the booties too!

If Jane a dit…

Oh, Aissa, I know exactly what you meant. I feel lucky to have a few things that put a big smile on my face whenever I wear them.

It's a basic outfit but I can feel your pleasure inside.;)

Pennerad a dit…

i agree with pret that anything that can elevate your mood should be enjoyed with great gusto. :)
beautiful look. i'm wary of suede, but admire those who are able to keep it clean and smooth.

Thanks heart in a cage! Hope you get them!

DEAD FLEURETTE: I've had mine for years now and the suede did suffer a bit. I never wear them on rainy days which limits occasions to enjoy my beloved boots in the Fall but it's such a pleasure when I do...

Prêt à Porter P: Thanks! I'm not sure how long that Zara trench will last but till then, I don't regret getting it at all! Same as the boots,which were one of my first big (as in expensive) -adult-fashion-purchase but were really worth it, not only on a cost per wear theory but also on account of the morale boost they give me!

Miss Moll Cherie: Congrats! Enjoy the boots!

Onlycoolcats: That's great! I tend to share the same approach: bags and shoes first and also outerwear!

Thanks Emmy! You know I actually find myself drawn to really simple outfits, especially on week-ends errands!

If Jane: Ah, isn't it funny, the power of clothes?! This ability we give to objetcs to make us feel a little better with ourselves...

Thanks q9y8! These items are like little treasures. Sometimes I forget about them and then it's such a pleasure to unearth them...

Thanks Pennerad! I get your wariness about suede shoes. These boots are my one and only suede shoes! I love them so I'm extra careful.
