{favorite things} Lanvin Studded Suede 'City' Sandals

It's been a while since my last favorite things post but this one is a long time coming! Let's go all the way back to February 2016 and this post. I shared a beautiful pair of sandals I was lusting over fully aware of the fact that I would never be able to afford them. Fast forward to July 2017 when I was shopping the Net-a-Porter End of Season Sale. There they the sale but still over $400. Then they sold out. Cue disappointment. Then, in the last week of the sale, magically my size came back in stock and the shoes were down to $395 with an extra 20% off making them $316. All rational thought went out of my head and I bought them!

Boy am I glad! They became my most worn shoe that Summer and are so comfortable. I stopped wearing them as much this year because I was afraid of ruining them too early. That's the problem with loving something too much, eventually you begin to get scared of losing it and what will happen. Yes, I know they're only shoes, but I love them all the same.

For quite a while I've been searching eBay and online consignment stores to find another pair at a good price to replace these when they die.  Most of the time when I found them they weren't my size, the right colors, or were more expensive than what I paid. Then I found a really pretty black version on The RealReal for $75 with 20% of and almost bought them. But in the back of my mind I was thinking "They're great, but they're not my colors" so I didn't buy them. Then someone else did and I had non-buyers remorse.

Cue to a week later and I was searching on The RealReal again and there they were, the Lanvin studded suede City sandals in my colors, and a half size bigger than mine. They were $75 with 20% off so they would only be $60. I added them to my cart and then decided to see if they had any others. I saw the black ones were back in stock so I added those to my cart too! Two pairs of my beloved sandals for $120 and Christmas gift money in my wallet - SOLD!

The black ones had some strings hanging off the ankle strap that wasn't shown on the site so I asked for some money back and got a $15 credit to the site. Not great considering shipping is $12, but oh well. I just had to cut the strings off and they're perfect.

Here are some of my favorite outfits with the sandals! They've been worn 18 times on the blog but FARRRR more in reality.  As you can see, they go with absolutely everything. Here's to many more years of wear with these and the new black ones!

  1. The sandals are so lovely

    Please dear take this survey
    Thank you

  2. Those sandals sure are versatile - it's great you got a second pair in black.

  3. They are such beautiful sandals! You got a great deal the first time around but an even better deal this time with two for less than you paid for the first one! Your hunting around definitely paid off. I try not to spend too much on shoes and rotate them frequently so I don't wear them out, but like you I have favourites too! :)

    Hope that your week is off to a good start! I just posted a new linkup on my blog if you want to check it out :)

  4. Yay for your diligent search efforts finally paying off! You got them for such a steal too.
    I can't wait to see the black pair in action!

  5. I've been a fan of these Lanvin sandals since you bought them so it's great to see they are getting so much wear.
    How amazing you were able to find them in your size and then buy multiples. Such a fab idea.
