Celine Love

This week a very special box arrived at the door. Ah!...a box full of promise if I ever saw one...

I had been looking for the perfect everyday-black-boots for a while, but being in Madrid... well, El Corte Inglés (the only department store in the country) sort of sucks! And while there are many great boutiques in the city, they don't have all the brands, nor the entire collections, or sizes. So online shopping becomes a very welcomed solution. But it looks like Spanish people aren't really used to that yet...

I got into Yoox, and found my perfect boots fairly quickly. It is a great Italian website. Not as nice as Net-a-Porter, but it has SO MANY things! Brands like Chloe, Celine, Givenchy and Moschino are not present in Madrid; but you can find them easily on Yoox for example. But again, nobody here seems to know this website...

Such a waste of opportunity.

And lucky, lucky me, when there is only 1 pair left (often size 36 or 41...), prices go down. A lot! And I'm a 36. That may be why I usually end up buying boots online hehe. Which might be one of the most risky things to buy online... and when they arrived the suspense was killing me. But in the end, it all worked out well: They fit perfectly!

:)


And we lived happily ever after....
(Really, they are the most comfy boots ever!)
