Azzedine Alaïa shoe sale
Utterly gorgeous Azzedine Alaïa chamois boots.
When I saw these pop up on an online sale yesterday, reduced to about £500 from £1000, I started a cheap campaign on my fiance involving guilt, blackmail and all sorts to get him to purchase them for me to prove his love for one last time. I explained that in my culture, anything from Alaïa is a normal dowry for the bride-to-be.
He told me that I was being "off the fucking map."
He also told me in a text message that he was "trying to manage a complete clusterfuck at work and your boots saga is starting to wear me down. And for your info I think they look like sexy giant boots."
By giant boots he means boots which look like something a giant would wear in those illustrated fairy tales - the ones with the buckle. Hardly!
Anyway, they sold out it in my size and every size this morning, much to his relief and my disappointment.
The 50% off Azzedine Alaïa shoe sale is still on http://www.theoutnet.com/
