Hello from Germany!
I recently shared the newest addition to my shoe collection on Instagram (link is on the top right!) and am now very excited to share more details!
I have been looking for a pair of good quality neutral heels (Choo, Louboutin, Blahnik, etc.) for a few months and had been searching through a number of second hand luxury websites because my budget was $100. Just a few weeks ago as I was perusing through eBay, I found these well maintained black, peep toe pumps with an asking price of $70 with free shipping. What! Pushing my luck, I offered $60 and the seller quickly accepted! Win for me!
I was definitely skeptical at first of the price, but after asking for additional pictures from the seller (who had very good ratings) and doing my own online research I decided they must be the real deal! While they are secondhand, the scratching and wear is very minimal, and hardly noticeable even up close. They even came with the original dust bag. :D
A similar pair can be seen here, retailing at nearly $600!
Diane Von Furstenberg dress [secondhand, $40], Jimmy Choo pumps [secondhand, $60], Rebecca Minkoff bag [new, $60]
How gorgeous is this location?! The castle is called Schloss Solitude, and is located within Stuttgart, where my husband is from. Super fairytale-esque. See more here!
Ok HAD to include a pic of my hair that I was so proud of. This dutch half crown braid was the results of only watching ONE youtube video and getting it right on my very FIRST attempt! The universe was on my side that day!
Thank you for reading, and I promise to share more from Germany within the next few days!
Live for luxury? No trust fund, no problem!
