today i bought...

ASOS Hometown shoes /

From the first moment I saw Alexander Wang's heavenly Fabiana sandals stalk down the catwalk in February 2011, I was in love. Sadly their £400 odd price tag made owning the real deal out of the question, but ever since then I've been desperately scouring the high street for a passable alternative. I even almost dropped £200 on the electric blue Fabianas when they were reduced on the Outnet a couple of months ago (oh, I came so close), but really it was the silver I lusted after. Sadly I never found a cheaper option that came even close to the real deal. Until now, that is. On Tuesday I gasped out loud when I saw these beauties on the ASOS website, retailing for a mere £40. I gasped even louder when I saw that my size had already sold out. I promptly ordered one size down and I cannot tell you my relief when I put them on today and they fitted (hallelujah!) It's safe to say I wasn't alone in my hunt for cheaper Fabiana-alikes, because these babies arrived on the ASOS website on Monday and had completely sold out by Thursday. Fear not, though, because ASOS often restocks a few sizes thanks to customer returns, so keep checking the holding page here and your size may just magically reappear. Ordinarily the cold British winter means I wouldn't be able to wear these for positively ages yet, but since I'm off to Australia in a month and a half you might just call it perfect timing. These are already as good as packed and I literally cannot wait to wear them.

*UPDATE 15th Jan* The shoes are now back in stock at the link above!

    1. Ooh I love the mint too; you should go for them. They seem like they'll be comfy because the heel is pretty chunky, but I'll keep you updated! X
