Chloe Susan Boots

The one that got away… 

Photos via Bohemian Waltz  

Always loved the Chloe Susan boots since they came out in Pre-Fall 2008.   Now they are back.

It’s a sign.

Anyone still thinking about the one that got away for 2011 or even earlier? that one item you wished you had got when it was available and now it’s gone?  Jenn and I have been discussing this at length the past few weeks.

Let me know what you still wished you had got when it was out but now it’s gone.

    I’m still kicking myself in the ass for not grabbing these baby soft navy leather Lanvin dream shoes with a lucite wedge…..

    on sale for about 75% off at the Barneys Outlet…..

    in my size that I said I would go back for but never did. Love these boots though

    I usually kick myself when I’m shopping at thrift stores, I let so many pieces go to try and curb the spending and they are always the ones I end up dreaming about that night, I go back and they;re gone. ARGH.

    I love those boots! I wish I had the money for them. But I definitely know what you mean when you say “the one that got away”. I went thrifting with a friend one time (and this is back in June). Anyway we came across these really great purple-blue-yellowy paisley printed harem pants that were just a dollar; I’d seen them before. She ended up buying them and since then, I can’t stop thinking about them! Maybe I could borrow them from her for an extended time, haha. Happy new year, btw!

    Yes, a pair of taupe Lanvin hidden wedge boots. I still dream about them. 🙁

  5. Liza says:

    Hmmmmm definitely the Balenciaga wooden wedges from last fall (2010). They just were on YOOX, but not in my size. 🙁

    Amazing boots! One item I can think of that got away would be a white Aryn K mxi dress with side cut-outs. It was cheap. I should have just picked it up immediately.

  8. styleeast says:

    The alexa Madewell leopard boots you’ve got, why why why did I not buy them!

  9. Thevisionarybutterfly says:

    The most perfect pristine designer cat eye sunglasses that rivaled Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow sunglasses, spotted at the flea market. The vendor only wanted $3. Forgot my wallet in the car. Told her hold them I’ll be right back! When I came back she was nonchalant in telling me someone must have stolen them off the table. Never got over it 🙁

  10. the style potato says:

    the glittery topshop ambush boots. but they came back via ebay uk. and yes. i got them.

  11. Christina says:

    Heart these boots!! 🙂 My ULTIMATE “the one that got way” is this amazing Alexander McQueen Dress from his 2007 spring/summer collection “Sarabande” – it’s a black lace dress that has a Spanish inspiration to it (look #20 on the runway). They had it on and I DID. NOT. GET. IT. UGH!!! The price wasn’t exactly a “steal”, but still, for a McQueen piece, it pretty much was. Now I am forever stalking the dress…

  12. Vanja says:

    Two things that i will never get over:
    – MMM handcuff bracelet
    – Helmut Lang handcuff bracelet

    I would give 1k to have those…. Sighhhh

    ps. will you get these Chloe Susan’s?? 🙂

  13. Marloes says:

    Stunning shots! Those boots are just perfection.

  14. Style Croissant says:

    Yes ! I absolutely know what you mean about “the one that got away”, I was so in love with marc jacob’s revisisted neon tweed jacket from 2010 but sadly I couldn’t afford it, even after the net-a-porter sales. But now I still think about it and I think that I could have made an effort to buy it at that time. Even the man repeller did an article about it and I was like “that’s a sign!” ehe 😉

  15. Alexandria says:

    Definitely the Susan’s or those Alexander Wang leather platform sandals with the fringe around the ankle (can’t remember the name).

  16. Serendipity Max says:

    Yes the Office (cheaper) version of the Chloe Susan boots.

    They got away a few years ago. I then found a pair on eBay and was winning till someone outbid me at the last second by 50p! I’m still hunting for them!


  17. Cassandrea. H. says:

    Ahh!! what an amazing boot!!!

    I totally missed out on the miu miu neon pink, white and black spat heels, and the prada burgundy pumps with the little black bow…=(

  18. Eeliza Gee says:

    I really love these photos Karen, and those scruffy stud Chloe Susan boots are somehow the apple of my eye! And don’t get my started on what i regret – some leather shorts for £5 (posted this on your fb) that i just didn’t get! it was my last £5 to be fair…


  19. Nati says:

    Desperately need your advise on the Jeffrey Campbell bundy creepers, or they’ll be the one’s that got away. Should I? What color (though I know you’ll go for the pink… lol) Thanks!

  20. Karen says:

    Styleeast – seen em pop up on eBay but $$$ over retail : (

    Nati – tough one. yea you know me. hmmmm let me know what you get.

    Christing – and they’re on sale in suede and all black !


    The STyle Potatoe – I wish i got the black patent chelsea boots they had : (

  21. Ria says:

    I love the Helmu Lang handcuff bracelet and these Alexander Wang booties. Luckily I got them recently. I need to wear them more but they are so precious to me.

  22. the style potato says:

    aw shame…and i currently missed out on a dalmatian print coat from dorothy perkins. how tragic! boo 🙁
