My new plastic-fantastic Vivienne Westwood Anglomania for Melissa thrice-buckled black ballet flats are amongst the many winter sales purchases I failed to properly present here on the blog till now. My bad.
They're just perfect for this season, just before sandals become an absolute necessity.
Here they were paired with some red Accessorize tights for the popping colour effect, but I can assure you, they are just as comfy worn bare-legged as well.
And what's best is that they cost me a mere €50! That animated gif you see above is me doing the shopping win dance. Well, not really, but it could be.
I did a brief search online after I brought them home, just for the kicks, and I found out that in ASOS they would cost me €93.75, in Farfetch €95.00 and in Zappos $123. I feel like quite the savvy shopper right now!
Where did I score such a bargain, I hear you ask?
Well, I got them from that little shop of delights called Saia in downtown Athens. Remember it from last year? If you still haven't paid a visit, do it now. Winter sales may be long gone, but now is the right season to stock on colourful dresses and brazilian bikinis that were actually *made* in Brazil. And except for Melissa, one can also find other quirky footwear brands like Irregular Choice and Seychelles, which I had people asking me whether they're stocked in Greece. Well, it looks like they are. Run!
