Paris souvenir

Black and white printed skirt Zara - DNA black top - Black double Mary Jane Bata - Grey bag vintage Salvatore Ferragamo
During my shoe edits last week I came across a pair of double strap leather Mary Janes that sat in my top shoe shelf, last worn in 2015. While I do not recall the exact year of purchase, I do remember walking the streets of Paris in the midst of a chilly breeze and entering a small shoe shop. As it tends to happen, I tried on every other pair of shoes available while my husband patiently waited. Finally I opted for these comfortable pumps that since then have walked several countries during business trips. While they are in perfectly good shape on the outside and sole is practically new with price tag still on, the inside is another story. When I put them on this morning I was fully convinced it would be its last wear, however I am having second thoughts regardless of the how bad the inside is. Also, I am pretty sure that if I do get rid of them, Mary Janes will be in full trend three seconds after they are gone, as it tends to happen. So, for now, you'll be seeing these around: my souvenir from Paris.

Sometimes it is so hard to get rid of some of the shoes we love! These are a gorgeous, classic pair!

Bata is a really old Canadian shoe company - those are really cute shoes. Do Mary Janes ever really go out of style? I think not!

I like your choice of background today - very nice with the black and white and grey.

I'm glad that you're keeping them, I think Mary Janes are such a classic style you'll always be able to wear them! :)

Plus it's nice to have such a cute souvenir of your trip - hopefully you can rescue the insides somehow?

I know my mom has taken many of her shoes to have them repaired---I'm not sure if they can fix the insides, but it's worth a try?
Love the black & white skirt---definitely a must have in my book!

Very good background to this look - like it. I have bad experience with repair of shoes, of course it depends of cost (and shoes) but I do not prefefer fix old shoes, often it 'no pass exam' and I regret it.

Such a classic piece. What I love the most is the story behind them!
