Girly shopping trip today with a dear friend who I hadn't seen for ages. Good company and pretty things, the perfect day really!
And lookity-lookity what I found in Mi Piaci:
Do they look familiar? If you've been following this blog you'll recognise them as an almost exact dupe of the Chanel shoes I fell in love with a few weeks ago. These are the Mi Piaci Parker, and while the black and cream version in the photo differs from the Chanel shoe in having a single colour heel the brown and cream version I tried on in the shop had the same two tone heel as the Chanel shoes. The Mi Piaci shoes retail for NZ$230.00, which seems like a lot to me considering the most I've ever spent on shoes was NZ$200.00 for a pair of Overland boots (on sale), but when you consider that Chanel shoes tend to retail for around US$500.00 it is a considerable saving on the original.
I didn't buy them though. I so very badly wanted to, and I suspect that when the Eccentric English Boyfriend reads this he will think it is a Very Good Thing that my replacement credit card hasn't arrived yet. Check out the Mi Piaci website here.
