When the cut-out and be-buckled Balenciaga came out (was it last winter?) I thought they were hideous.
But with time and exposure to them (or the same style at any road) in real life situations I am starting to really like them.
A major influence was a young lady I have been working with who was wearing them with dresses and looking really super feminine but tough, which is a style of dressing I have an awful lot of time for.
I have to say I'm tempted.

Not having loads of money at the moment is kind of a blessing because I really can't buy anything. So I can fantasise, mull things over without having to commit to a particular look. While I suspect I would never be brave enough to wear these, in my head I'm wearing the hell out of them and looking pretty awesome at the same time, thank you very much.
If some money ever trickles in sufficiently to fund a shopping trip I'll see if I am still so enamoured.
