Well….asuming by the title(and certainly by the breathtaking background) you’d expect a major hystory-inspired Athens post. It could be but it isn’t. My shameless intention is clear: To speak about the humble classic black pump. Believe it or not, before going to Paris last month I didn’t have such a staple. Ha! All my black pumps had mates. Straps, metallic heels, patent details, whatever. They were all mated. So when in City of Lights with yet another series of frivolous pants, finding a pair of them became a life-threating necessity. But the most important thing that I didn’t really know was that simple black pumps are as rare as Megalosaurus tooth. Prehistoric truth yet truth. Three days, five arrondissements. Luck? Zero. The town was too romantic and coupling with bows and blings seemed inevitable. Not to mention the patent dominance. I didn’t want being mirrored on my shoes. Done it before. Anyways at the time I had grown tired of the chase of the scarce basics, I’ve entered the Dior boutique. By the way I’ve never met such wonderful and polite sales persons in my entire life. Unlike most, not only they understood what I was looking for, they also found it in another store(my puffed feet could only fit in the massive 41.5) and delivered within 10 minutes.  Finally a timeless pair of shoes that could proudly be inherited to my female descendants. Yes I will have,eventually, mom. What’s the rush?

    so glad my mum is not the only mum with these thoughts for her daughter right now – enough mums! one day…
    love the shirt and totally agree about the black pump – there was a pair in zara last year I wish I bought because I haven’t seen another since!

    LOVE the leather pants!!
    Do they run true to size? Are they designed to be a bit loose? I’m a US 6 and wondering if I should size up. Did you?

    Gorgeous!!!

      Hi Yvonne,
      They’re designed to fit loose on hips. I wear 6 Australian size but I don’t know with what American equivalent is. I usually wear an Am size 2.

    Hi Evangeline, I L-O-V-E your Friend of Mine pants. May I know what size you wear in it? It runs super small and even AUS 6 was too small for me (I’m a jean size 25-26) but sadly the larger sizes are sold out everywhere. Where did you get it and would you happen to know who still stocks it? thanks alot love.

      Hi Chris ❤
      So I’ve got them in size 6 from shopbop but they’re sold out there. I think that the fit is perfect and we’re the same size in jeans. Have you tried to send an email at the friend of mine site?
