Tenue d'hier

Here's the end of this nerve-wracking suspense! Ha ha! Bellow is what I was wearing yesterday. 

It's funny my new Isabel Marant ballet flats take an orangey tint on picture when they are actually red, just like my striped top. Weird. 

What's even more weird is the false note around the retailing of these ballet flats. 

Spotted months ago in black and taupe on lagarçonne and Totokaelo, the "Lara" just couldn't be found in Paris. They finally appeared a few weeks ago in the brand's boutiques but only in red. Obviously, since then, the black ones were sold-out in my size on Internet. 

I was therefore a bit disappointed but, all things considered, just like my new bag, these red ballet flats are the right color to fight off the current gloominess. 

But of course, if you have tips to find the black ones in 38, I'd be very thankful if you would share them with me! Yes, they are that great!

 trench: Zara - striped top /marinière: Uniqlo - jeans: H&M - ballerines/ballet flats: Isabel Marant


Voilà, fin du suspense insoutenable! Ha ha! Ci-dessus ce que je portais hier.

C'est étrange, mes nouvelles ballerines Isabel Marant ressortent orangées sur la photo quand en fait, elles sont  rouges comme ma marinière. Bizarre. 

Encore plus bizarre, c'est le couac autour de la distribution de ces chaussures . 

Repérées en noir et taupe sur lagarçonne et Totokaelo depuis des mois, les "Lara" étaient introuvables à Paris. 
Pour finalement apparaitre en boutique il y a quelques semaines mais en rouge uniquement. Évidemment, depuis, les noires que je cherchais sont épuisées dans ma pointure sur Internet. 

J'étais donc assez dépitée mais, finalement, comme mon nouveau sac, décidément, ces ballerines rouges sont la couleur idéale pour affronter cette grisaille et morosité ambiante!

Bon bien naturellement, si vous avez des infos pour les trouver en noir, en 38, je vous serai très reconnaissante de les partager avec moi!

    1. Thanks a lot! Coincidentally, I had a little incident with the trench that day which is sadly starting to fall to pieces. I wish I had a reliable tailor to fix it up almost as brand new because it will be a pain to look for a new one...

  2. lovely look! The flats are beautiful in red. Oh no, we are the same shoe size in these, I'm afraid I bought your black pair.

    1. Thank you! You're the one who started it all! Ha ha! Seeing how you wore the black ones so well really triggered my wish to get them. The taupe ones are still available on lagarçonne but even on sale, they're too expensive and I'd really prefer black.
      Oh well, maybe you'll get tired of them eventually and then I'll jump right in and get them! :))

    1. Thanks! Oh I'm crossing fingers that IM will right this and that the black ballet flats will be available in France! I'm often bailing out on Zara because the quality is very so-so (clothes already damaged in the store is not a rarity!) but once in a while, there are good finds!

    1. Thanks! When I saw the pics, I was really surprised at how on all of them the shoes seemed orange and was like "my shoes don't look like that at all, do they?!". I seriously questioned my sight for a second. I'm already short-sighted but if I can't figure out colors properly, now that's disturbing. But no everything's fine! Ouf!

    1. Thanks Sara! I hope she does too! Oh how I felt for you during the Sweden/France match last night. Your team really deserved to win and go on.
      Change of topic: Did you get the Merry sandals during the NAP sales? Still a week to go for sales to start here but with the weather I really don't feel like buying anything summer related...

  6. Oh, I know, about the match...I was so excited and happy for them, that they finally played really well. I just wish that they would have played like this against Ukraine and England. A bittersweet moment.
    And yes, I got the sandals from NAP!! They should get here soon. I'm hoping that the Paris stores will get the Bobbys soon too:)! The weather is actually really nice here today, but tomorrow, when we celebrate midsummer, it's supposed to rain all day...and midummer's the kind of tradition that's always celebrated outdoors.

    1. So glad you got the Merry. I've been wearing mine at every single occasion when the weather allowed it that is! Still no news of the Bobbys but the Bettys & Bekket are in. Caught a glimpse of the new collection in store. I think I'll drop by the IM store this week-end, not for the sales mind you (!) but to check out the Etoile leather jacket which apparently are already in... :))

  7. Aïssa, J'adore ton blog. Je viens de le découvrir par Out of the Bag où tu te figures sur la liste :) J'ai presque tout lus ton blog entier haha. J'aime beaucoup ton trench et voudrais savoir si il tient bien... car j'en cherche un aussi mais je ne suis pas prête à miser sur un Burberry là en ce moment.

    1. Merci beaucoup! Ton commentaire me fait énormément plaisir!
      Pour ce qui est du trench, je suis assez (agréablement) surprise de sa longévité! Alors au bout de 2 ans d'usage, il montre quelques signes de fatigue mais rien de bien méchant qu'un peu de couture ne saurait remettre en état. A priori, je pense pouvoir le porter encore l'automne prochain.
      Burberry attendra encore un peu pour moi!
