Today someone asked me if I liked you. I laughed, and I said, "Ha! That's funny!! I freakin' LOVE that chick!! She's funny, caring, crazy as heck, sweet, beautiful, and she's reading this blog right now and; I love her!!"
I received this awesome "I Love You" from my friend today. If your reading, Thank you Kelli.
Every year I allow myself one pair of Chie Miharas. On sale of course.
The year was 2008. It was the first time I had ever seen a pair of Chie Mihara's at Anthro and on Heidi. I lusted for Antho's Savoy Slingbacks by Chie Mihara. When Anthro finally put them on sale, they were still too expensive for me to afford. Months later, I found mine at Nordstrom online for 70% off. The last pair of size 38's for $103 They didn't even come in their original box. I didn't care.
In 2009 I lusted for Anthro's Needlework T-Straps by Chie Mihara. When Anthro put them on sale at 50% off, I didn't bat so much as an eye lash over the price.

The year was 2010. I didn't even see these until they hit sale in early January. That's right, Anthro put this pair of sandals on sale in the dead of Winter. It happened so fast Heidi has been kicking herself ever since. I think this color was an Anthro Exclusive. I searched for Heidi, and was only able to find them in Taupe Suede. Which doesn't come close to Anthro's Pearl. BTW, instead of the leather wrapped heal that Anthro described, these arrived with a versatile stacked wood heel.

I'm over them...
It was instant love when I found the Tosmos at Chie Mihara's Online Store. The only size available was UK 41. I was heart broken for a minutes. Wait! Google to the rescue. The best price was $358 out the door from farfetch.com. And DHL didn't even charge me a VAT fee or a surcharge for importing them. They arrived last night from a little boutique in Sienna, Italy in 4 days. They are perfect in every way.

All my Chie's are a size UK 38. I normally wear a US 8. So they run 1/2 size large. US 8 normally equals a UK 38.5. Size down 1/2 size. Here is today's OOTD really fast.
I'm in a Well Review most of the day today. I have to prepare. I had more to say, but I'm running behind Ladies.
Do you love Chie Mihara's? Do you love Red Suede Shoes? Tell me about them.
