Story of my Life: Diplomacy Boots

Everyone knows that the last few days of fashion week are dangerous: it’s tempting to make purchases that seem urgent at the time, because for weeks you’ve seen nothing but well-dressed people. In parallel to the October show from Louis Vuitton, I subconsciously clicked on “boots” paired with the aforementioned French label on Vestiaire Collective: Bam! There they were, the Diplomacy Boots that I’d been eying for a few seasons were suddenly within reach.

As a reminder to myself, I had photographed the wearer of said boots as she sat across from me in the front row. At every possible shopping opportunity, I enthusiastically held the Diplomacy Boots in my hands – just to find out that they were only available in burgundy and also completely out of my price range (original price: 1500 Euro).

Suddenly, the exact model I wanted appeared, but unfortunately – and this is the story of my life – in size 41 they were one size too big. Anyone who runs into these shoes in a 40: bring them here! Many thanks!
