The Insanity Called Miu Miu & Some Clog Chatter

Some of you already know of the madness that Miu Miu's collection generated recently. Ever since those bulky, overwhelming platform sandals hit the runway bloggers everywhere starting oh-ing and aw-ing over them and soon enough some lucky ones managed to get their feet into them. Here are a few examples:

Ultimul trend care innebuneste bloggeritele de fashion de pretutindeni este reprezentat de noile sandale platforma Miu Miu. La scurt timp dupa ce au fost lansate in magazine aceste sandale au si aparut in picioarele si inimile unor norocoasa. Mai jos avem doar cateva exemple:

Truth be told I just can't find myself be sucked into this mania. I'm guessing it's the satin thing - satin shoes are just not made for me. But they do look lovely overall, don't they? And giant platforms are a must this year. Speaking of platforms, are you getting into the clog trend yet? My brain is still saying no, but I wouldn't mind stumbling upon a pair. That damn wood heel is just to die for. Cheapest option I've found so far which still resembles the original Chanel clog can be bought via Ebay.

Sincer nu ma simt complet atrasa de ele, desi sunt in totalitate de acord vizavi de mania platformelor. Totusi... pantofii de satin nu au fost niciodata in lista preferintelor mele, fie ei chiar si Miu Miu. Revenind la platforme, ce credeti despre trendul sabotilor care face ravagii la o scara chiar mai larga? Pentru cele care dezolva usor obsesii, cea mai ieftina varianta pe care am gasit-o (si care pastreaza imaginea sabotului original Chanel care a reinviat trendul) poate fi achizitionata via Ebay.

Si eu am o pereche de saboti dar varianta din panza :(
In schimb ador aceasta pereche http://www.freepeople.com/caza-platform-clog/_/cmCategoryID/8a61524b-907c-474c-ab37-f357c9ae11e3/&detailcross
Despre sandalele Miu Miu ce sa zic...acum 10 ani exista si la noi o varianta asemanatoare dar nu asa colorata ;)

Mie imi plac incaltarile din panza, este ceva in textura materialului care pur si simplu ma cucereste. Wear them, wear them :D
The other clogs look great too, parca as fi vrut sa nu fie contrast intre bareta si partea principala. They do look MASSIVE.
Pantofii Miu Miu sunt cumva draguti - cel putin cei printati - but that's it :P

Mi-as lua si maine Miu Miu pink or blue, dar cine sa-mi dea 1700ron? :(

Life's so unfair.

Exact asta constat si eu: pantofi ca cei Miu Miu (ca model) existau peste tot acum vreo cativa ani, printul difera doar....dar asta nu inseamna ca nu mi-i i-as dori, cei albi cu negru sunt WOW. In schimb nu ma omor deloc, da deloc, deloc dupa saboti, mi se par niste incaltari total dezechilibrate (echilibru in sensul armoniei compozitionale) :)).

Imi plac cei roz cu cristale - I know, I'm such a girl!I hate clogs, I don't know why but I hate them...with passion! :)Thanks for the the mention of pop culture and fashion magic in your article!:))))))

@ A dreamer: nu mai bine ne apucam sa facem pantofi? :D
@All Style: eu cred ca eram oblivious la all around cand au fost pantofii aia la noi (nu ca ar fi asta o noutate, sunt destule lucruri care au trecut pe langa mine)
@Alice: cu placere darling, you were worth mentioning

Alice in vintageland spunea...

Nici eu nu imi amintesc de ei, dar deloc, oricum in liceu eram totally oblivious to fashion, mai ales in primii doi ani!:))))))
