Okay, okay, I know it’s been almost a MONTH since I was in Paris, so I reallllyy should have gotten around to sharing all of my purchases with you by now, but… I’d been feeling sort of uninspired [or too lazy to get out my camera] until now.

SO HERE THEY ARE. The most amazing, beautiful, original, tactile, sculptural, and (dare I say it?) COMFORTABLE pair of shoes, courtesy of the enigmatic Mr. Margiela himself:

These shoes actually have a story behind them– I first witnessed them in Bergdorf’s sprawling shoe salon when I was in New York in April, and fell deeply in love when I tried them on.

Alas, the steep price tag prevented me from purchasing, so I resolved to embark upon a thorough internet search. Unfortunately, after exhausting every resource I could think of, the search proved fruitless, and these beautiful shoes receded into the “someday” section of my wishlist along with those Stella McCartney Fall 2008 boots and quite a lot of Balenciaga (remember that bubble coat from Fall 2006? mmmmm…)…

In light of all this, I was quite pleasantly surprised when visiting the Margiela store in Paris to see *the* shoes perched on a shelf, generously marked down on sale! I can honestly say I have never entered into a purchase (especially a footwear purchase) with so little hesitation or deliberation!

So, there it is, folks! A fairytale reunion between a girl and her dream pair of Margielas!
