Bolt from the Blue

Sometimes you just don't know where it comes from.

Who has ever had a craving that just pops into your mind, and in spite of your rational self saying you know you can't have it at right now (like wanting a favorite food IMMEDIATELY), you still can't help yourself.

I think it's how obsessions are born.

While brushing my teeth this morning, it suddenly occurred to me that I HAD TO HAVE sky blue patent shoes.

Maybe because I have always loved the sky blue Miu Miu double strap mary janes. I have them in silver. I so should have bought them in blue too! Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

What was I thinking not to get these???

So I put the call out and started a shoe search of my own.

These are the right color but they are pretty pointy. I think I want a more rounded toe. The price is right though.

These are interesting and I like the shape (no idea on price) but a bit too electric blue for what I want.

I kind of like these even though they are not sky blue or patent. Must not get distracted!

So no luck! What the heck? Is baby blue out this season? Bummer.

What I did find, to tide me over are these - the Melissa and Vivienne Westwood collaboration Lady Dragon heels.

Adorable, right???

They're kind of hard to find and only start at a size 6, so I hope they fit okay.

These come in a few other colors although availability is limited. I got mine from Epaulet.

I actually need black flats much more than I need sky blue patent heels, but now I can't get them out of my head.

Gosh, see I would quite happily wear all of those shoes - except perhaps the very very pointy pair. I do love the darling original pair you're lusting after though, so keep up the search and I hope you find them!

p.s. I know what you mean about getting distracted, I needed a pair of flat black shoes, but I bought sky high purple pumps, cute little dresses, wedges... basically anything but!!

Ha ha...you were doing a bolt from the blue post while I was doing a bolt from the pink for CFR. Great minds think alike. The Miu Miu is totally worth obsessing over. I think the Melissa is a good option.

Just a warning, I tried the VW heels on in the store and they run really big!

Your obsession is totally fine because I feel like I NEED cute yellow shoes. The Vivienne Westwood ones remind me of Disney princesses.
