When it comes to making a purchase of any sort, I’m usually obsessive about it. As a financially-independent college student, I can’t really afford to be any other way. When I see something I want, I pin it, research it, save for it… I even keep Excel spreadsheets so that I can budget my fashion purchases for the next few months.
But fashion moves so fast; if you wait to buy something that you love, it could be gone by the time you’re ready for it. This is where Yoox comes in handy. I recently scored these beautiful Chloé shoes from the Spring 2007 collection from their site, which recently restocked their Chloé selection with shoes from all of my favorite seasons (even some from Fall and Spring ’06). I know a lot of people think reissues are cheating, but for me, it’s a great way to determine how much I love something if I still want it years after it first hit the runway.
I’m a bit sad that they sold out of this iconic Chloé wedge in my size, but I’m not too bitter, as I’m quite in love with these too!
