How Do I Hate Thee? Let Me Count The Ways

Filed under: No Buy,Sales,Shoes — Miss Plumcake @ 2:37 pm

I hate my No Buy.  I HATE my No Buy.  I want my No Buy to become incarnate so I can put Nair in its shampoo and spread rumors about it doing unsavory things with then entire water polo team. I want to ask it to prom, and then not show up, or ever better, show up with her best friend who is wearing the same dress and looks totally hotter.

But why do I hate my No Buy? I’m so glad you asked.

I hate my No Buy because I cannot buy these $372 Galliano mules for $149 

Footwear from Our Favorite Funky Little Fashion Troll!

I hate my No Buy because I cannot buy these Bibas with the ever-elusive mid-heel, so I can wear them with black tights come fall.


And I ESPECIALLY hate my No Buy becauseI cannot buy these perfect perfect perfect $500 tango shoes from Martin Margiela on sale for less than $150.

Tango ’til you’re sore!

A word about Yoox pictures. They are not always the prettiest. Most shoes are photographed at a slight angle to look more gracile, while Yoox shoots them straight from the side. Not as flattering, but hey, for $150 Gallianos, I’ll take a little slapdash photography.


  1. It is a good thing they do not carry those Bibas in 12WW because I would be in serious danger of violating my own No Buy. Does yours have a time limit?

  2. My No Buy lasts until November 1st.



    What about yours?

    Incidentally, Biba tends to use narrower lasts, so I usually size up for width. Gah, they’re so great.
