it's good to want things

Oh hey..guess what? MIA (heyyyy 90s brands, what UP) makes Swedish clog sandals that as good as Hasbeens (as far as I am concerned) and they sell them at Urban Outfitters for about one third the price. (And curiously...they were about $20 less at the Urban store than they were on the MIA site??)

Anyways..that only means one thing. MINE.


MIA CLOG SANDALS // AA CABLE KNIT KNEE SOCKS // MIU MIU S/S 05 TOTE

I consider it a cheap thrill.

Until I get those maroon patent No. 6s.
And I find a way to snag those Celine dream weavers (the potential sock/tights & polyester dress combinations are thrilling me to bits).

ADDENDUM:
PS. So many comments and emails about my bag!...I've posted it before. Here it is in it's runway glory, S/S 2005:

It was the first thing I had ever bought at Miu Miu, and at the time it was the most I had ever spent on any one object in my life (I think it was about $480..oh how PRICES have changed). Every year around this time I get the urge to bust it out for a while; it still holds up! Plus it is ENORMOUS. I used to have it covered in tons of thrift brooches (lots of what you see here) but now it's just Nefertiti, a tie clip and a giant plastic emerald..YA KNOW, CASUAL.

PPS, Real Talk: I also have that giant swirl pin. I would bough this entire collection if I could've; it is an all time favorite !

This bag is awesome. And you're the best example that sandals with socks looks good, making it 'no-trend' is an error.

I live in London, and I went to LA last week for work. I tried these shoes on 3 times but I was like, 'hmm, do I really love them?' Obviously, the minute the plane landed, I decided I wanted them, and this post might finally push me over the edge.
Love them with the socks!

I just came across this post and, oh lordy me. Those cable knit socks, and those shoes. I'm dying, actually dying.
