News Shoes Flash!


Mephisto shoes are WAY cheaper in France! (I am pretty sure this is about the only thing on the planet that is.)

After visiting the Mephisto store near me, which had none in my size, and calling around to all the other stores in Paris, I found the shoes I wanted, in my size. I had a choice between fuschia and black, and anyone who knows me knows I already own enough black shoes to outfit a small army, so I got the fuschia. I had to head all the way to Madeleine to find them, and they cost a tiny bit more than my local store, but I think it was worth it.

In the US? $145. In France? 61-69 euros. That's practically half price! Close enough to a sale for me. Now, I just have to break them in.

By the way, if you speak French, and know which ones you want, the stores here will sell them to you and mail them to the US, which is still a way better deal than buying them full price in America. Here is the information for the store nearest me (the guy there was the friendliest french customer service person I have ever met!):

    Mephisto
    124 bd Vincent Auriol 75013 Paris
    01 45 86 53 09

cul does not stand for 'queue', it stands for ass (papier cul = ass paper)

I know. I corrected it. You and several other people corrected me right away. Forgive me for posting at 1 AM after Fete de la Musique--I occasionally make errors. But I do correct them. Please reread.

AND next time, please post on the correct post! This one was about shoes. Shoes have nothing to do with rude words, in any language.

My dear girl, you should be earning commission. Would you hate me forever if I got pink too? I have just the right summer bag to go with them ;)

Very cute! Pink is definitely a good choice. Black goes with almost anything, but pink is fun and summery.
