Dior Shoes, aka best thrift find ever

Monday, 28 April 2008


Dior shoes, originally uploaded by erica_knits.

Sometimes it pay to look in the men's department. Size 7.5 men's dress shoes just happen to fit the same as a size 10 women's shoe. The soles are scuffed with wear, but the tops are pristine and loved. The best part is the mark price on the sole $499.00, but they were mine for $7.99.

I need your help though, what should I wear them with?

With everything. Those are amazing!

skinny jeans rolled up, short trapeze dress with tights, pretty much everything!

what a great find, lucky you!

ha ha I guess I just need to open my mind to the possibilities!

Stephanie said...

wow! great find indeed! I scored a Dior cashmere scarf at a state-side VV a few months ago ;)

I'd browse Impulse's blog for inspiration, but pretty much what Erica said above! I'd throw in slouchy jeans rolled up too (I have a pair of Acne Hugs that look good like this)

ooh i'm a size 10 and i always check the men's section too... i've had some great finds there, though not as great as these! i'm with Stephanie - they'd be great with slouchy jeans or pleated pants rolled up.

Stephanie: Thanks for the Impulse tip, I've been checking it out.

Erin: The men's section is great, I will check every time now for sure!

Thanks everyone, I will definitely give the rolled up pants idea a try.

Those are fantastic... I've been looking for a pair of shoes just like that for a long time, but all the womens shoes are too girly, those are PERFECT. I would wear them with tights and minidresses, cropped pants rolled up (kinna like these http://www.thepresidentwearsprada.com/2008/04/yves-saint-laurent.html)

I adore oxfords! Yours are gorgeous...I love wearing mine as others have suggested, with thick tights and a minidress, but I think a full-on menswear look with a vest, white shirt (sleeves rolled up) and wide-leg trousers is great. I just need to find the right pair of pants...

Wow.. What a great stuff. Got a pair of formal Dior shoes from Neiman Marcus last year, those are really very comfy and durable.

they're gorgeous! I would wear them with a ruffled skirt and a simple top with a leather belt. or anything else.
