As you know, I am keen on pink (understatement I know!), so when I saw YSL had launched their Tribute sandal in petal pink, I actually thought I had died and gone to pink shoe heaven. I planned on getting these shoes at the end of the month as a treat, however, as we all know, best laid plans and all that...!
So I was in Manchester for Manchester Fashion Week, and fortunately the shops were open after the show had finished. My plan was to go and look at the Alexander Wang Donna Hobo bag for my Sis' 40th pressie then pop to Harvey Nicks for a long overdue Serendipity cocktail (no longer on the menu so you need to ask for it!)
I had to walk past the shoe department to get to the restaurant - they do this on purpose don't they?! I had not previously tried on the Tribs, so was more curious than anything at this stage. I had been trolling around Manchester for a little while now in high heels (naturally!), so my feet were tired, so this was a real test.
I was totally amazed how comfortable these shoes were. They are 140mm high including the 30mm platform. Even the male sales assistant said to me he could tell how comfortable I felt from the way I was parading around the shoe department. I however relented and walked away.....
So on I went to savour the delish Serendipity upstairs, and who was to Whatsapp me but @Stylisa! Lisa had just purchased the Chanel purse to match her classic bag so was sharing the occasion with me - we always do this btw! I started to tell her about my YSL lust, and Lisa said I should just go and buy them.
Who was I to argue?!
So I told the barman to hold the ice, trolled downstairs and made my way to YSL Heaven.
I hope you love my pink purchase as much as me!
