Sigh…. Where to start? Hmmmmm…. So… I honestly don’t remember where I saw these first but I do remember seeing them somewhere in yellow and I thought…. “Ehhnnn, isoke” and kinda moved on.
These sandals are also one of my faves and as you’ve noticed, I decided to go with the “Nudistsong” instead of the “Nudist”. (Spoke too soon, eventually got the “Nudist also”).
So true story…. these were available summer 2014 and I tried them on every time I went to the store and loved them more and more every time, but my “ijebu” (frugalness) just couldn’t come to the point of handing my credit card over to the sales associate….. still hoping and praying for them to go on sale. Well… one fine weekend, I went back in and they were GONE!
The “Jane” was part of the new “Saint Laurent” collection (not sure what happened here but it looks like the official name changed yet YSL was still being used on some products… confusing). Anyway, I don’t remember where I first saw these classic, chic, simple sandals but all I know is that I wanted them in my collection right away. So I searched and they were sold out everywhere, I mean “pata pata” out of the black leather (black satin and red leather were available).
I met these sandals at the Level Shoe District in Dubai, June last year on sale at a good enough price. I decided right then and there to search online to see if I could get a better deal and better sizing. And what do you know, found them passing both criteria. With a grin on my face, I placed the order to have them delivered to a friend of mine in the US (free shipping) as I was heading back the next month.
