When you stop looking, you find it

Posted on


Happens with shoes just like it does with men….


Blazer: >Silence & Noise via UO (mine is XL) . Shorts: DIY cut offs (try these in 2 sizes up). Tee: Western Spirit (cut off the sleeves). Hat: Trash & Vaudeville. Shoes: Chloe (found here). (Similars: these. Block heels sandals or here).  Nails: Topshop ‘Gone Fishing’ (on 2nd bottle).  Lips: MAC ‘Lady Danger’ So Chaud is another good orange.

It was one of the ‘ones that got away.’   After months years of stalking eBay and googling word variations on ‘chloe triple strap shoes’ – I gave up on finding these.

I tried.

Then these popped up on Yoox.  I literally did this  :- O    I thought Chloe stopped making these so where the eff did these come from?? There’s more from that old season:  these and lower versions.

You stop looking.  It turns up.  Even if it’s years later.

This must have happened to you. Clothes or men, the principal is the same I’ve noticed.

    This happened to me once (with shoes) in the clearance aisle of Nordstrom rack. The “ones that got away” found me:)

    Love the lip color & the hat!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple
    ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83
