Eu le am de anul trecut, de la Spartoo, (masura 39 – UK 6, adica una din putinele care mai sunt disponibile la Asos…) si LE IUBESC, sunt sandalele mele preferate de vacanta (la mare) pentru ca, desi sunt foarte inalte (tocul are 13 cm dar platforma este si ea pe masura), sunt comode si chiar pot sa merg destul de mult cu ele.
Imi place mult si culoarea (“nude” pentru pielea bronzata), baretele incrucisate sunt, am mai zis, favoritele mele, iar decupajul din fata este exact atat cat trebuie. (Daca vreti sa le vedeti “la purtator” – desi nu in niste poze prea bune – sunt incaltata cu ele aici si aici).

Si acum ca am povestit ca un om mare despre sandale, trebuie sa va marturisesc ca tocmai mi-am cumparat inca o pereche identica. Ura!

Chestia e ca atunci cand descopar ca ceva imi place foarte mult – mai ales ceva ce eu consider greu de gasit, iar sandalele bej cu talpa ortopedica perfecte sunt clar un asemenea lucru pentru mine – incep sa ma gandesc cu groaza la ziua cand o sa se strice si viata mea o sa ramana pustie. Daca luam in calcul si semnul ceresc ca tocmai marimea mea mai este la Asos, plus faptul ca pretul e mai mic decat ce am platit eu pe ele anul trecut (cam 90€) (si cu mult, mult mai prietenos decat pretul initial de 140£), devine clar ca lumina zilei (filtrata prin geamul unei camere antifonate de la Spitalul 9) ca pur si simplu nu aveam cum sa NU-mi cumpar aceste sandale. Asa ca acum sper ca eu si sandalele mele Ash sa traim fericite pana la adanci batraneti!

EN: I’ve had these since last year, from Spartoo, (size EU 39/ UK 6 – which just so happens to be one of the few sizes still available at Asos…) and I ADORE them, they are my favourite (summer) holiday sandals because, even though they are quite high (13 cm/ 5 inch heel but with a high platform to match), they are comfortable and feel secure on my feet, so I can actually do a reasonable amount of walking in them (of the “evening walk” variety, not the sight-seeing one, of course).

I love the tan colour, which counts as “nude” against my tanned skin, cross-over straps are, as I’ve said before, the type of straps I like the most and the peep toe is just the right size. (I hate sandals that showcase the toes in all their glory). (If you want to see what they look like on the foot, I’m wearing them here and here, but the photos are not that great).

And now comes the dirty confession: I’ve just bought an identical pair. Yey.

The thing about me is that as soon I realize I really, really like something – especially something that I have trouble finding – and the perfect tan wedge sandals definitely fall into that category for me – I start worrying about the day when that item gets ruined and my life becomes a void. Take also into account the heavenly sign of my size being one of the few still in stock and the fact that 58£ is a much better price that the 90€ I paid last year (not to mention compared to the rather steep initial price of 140£!) and it becomes clear as daylight (filtered through the window of a nice, quiet padded room) that it was in fact impossible for me to NOT buy these sandals. So now I hope me and my beloved Ash wedges can live happily ever after!
