Breaking in the Balenciaga Resort sandals (2011) which were new for me (old stock from Yoox) was a little more challenging than expected and compromised the intended comfort dressing factor. The fabric is rather course and a little width stretching, so I've just found out, is required (these run really narrow). My oldest best friend used to tell me 'pain is beauty'. This line was delivered always with a smirk mainly because he is male and was referring to females fashion. Although I'm not sold on his slogan, these Balenciaga's do fit with it. I'm willing to endure a little bit of pain for these until they give because for me they really are that beautiful. Fortunately I had some stashed Repetto flats in my bag. Literally saved the end of day and my feet!

This last photograph was just a bit of fun. The shoes and bag were such a hit they got photographed quite a bit on the street. I rather like the idea of a photograph being taken of another photographer working their magic, caught in the moment they capture their image. The real life aspect just adds another dimension to a photograph.
