All Jeweled up!

I have to tell you that I'm not a sneaker person. I brought my beloved and battered Nike all the way from Sydney when I moved here almost 6 years ago now. Then that one died when I was heavily pregnant with my twins so I had to buy another so I can survive the last few weeks of the pregnancy carrying almost 12 lbs babies.

My heart flutters when I saw these Miu Miu sneakers when I was in Vegas over Xmas. I didn't buy them of course and I ended up buying the blue purse instead. I kept telling myself I'm not a sneaker person so don't go crazy over something that it's A month later I still had those darlings dancing in my head. I went through my wardrobe to see if I can somewhat pull this off without actually wearing track pants and oversize tee.

Then over the weekend I got an email from NM offering gift card if purchasing online. There, I said it. I'm a sucker for gift card and I don't really care for double points event. Just do the math. If you spend $500 with double points, that is 1000 pts and you are still 9000 pts away from getting the $100. So why bother? Why not spend that same amount and get $100 instantly.

OK, the point was I bought the darn sneaker. I bought it without knowing what size I should get. Depending on the style, I can wear 39, 39.5 and 40 in Miu Miu. That's consistency for you lol. I selected 39 as it sounded like a good number at the time.

Fast forward to today, I'm happy to report that 39 was my perfect number. It fits perfectly and gosh I'm in love. I won't be using them for marathon anytime soon though ;-)
