Blue Hues & Givenchy

There was one more stow-away in my luggage from New York. Every summer, I curse at myself for not buying a decent pair of sandals. My favorite shoes are all closed-toe pumps and my feet suffer from heat stroke every year like clock-work. I just don’t find sandals as interesting as pumps, until these babies came along.

These Givenchy sandals are black suede with gold hardware and a shark tooth ankle-strap latch. The perfect amount of my typical loves (suede and hardware) and tough details.

Random fact – I learned the proper way to say Givenchy from an episode of The Hills. It’s pronounced jhee-von-shee, and not giv-en-chee as my American tongue lead me to believe. Thanks MTV!

I ended up ordering and preferring another size from Net-a-Porter, so there will be a size 35 of these released back into the wild of the Barney’s shoe department soon. Any interested parties can contact me for return info.
