The 7 Day Challenge: Miu Miu Spring 2010 Swallow Platform Mary Janes

For months, I've been meow meowing about my undying love for Miu Miu Spring 2010 (see herehere, here and here)


UV polish and Swallow print 029









Well I finally stopped mooning and DID something about it.

I have a lovely reader to thank. She enabled---I mean, tweeted me after seeing that Seattle blogger Styleish nabbed my beloved swallow print mary jane platforms on Bergdorf's site. Which was totes bananas since the shoes have been sold out for months all around the country. Believe me.  I looked in 4 citites.

Never EVER dreamed I'd get my hands on them brand new. Thought I'd have to wait and maybe find them resale.  Like all my other little Miu Mius. (Violins...)


When they arrived it was a MAJOR occasion in the Diabolina household.  Even Mr. D was thrilled for me. . In fact, he flew them around the room a few times in celebration. That's 11 years of training, ladies

They are everything I could have hoped for and more. My favorite shoes of all time.  STAMP!

They are - duh - cuter than words could ever express. They are unique, arresting, strange. They are also comfortable and incredibly versatile. 

So versatile that I decided to wear them for a week straight. I've been in a bit of a fashion rut and I wanted to challenge myself to get back to fabulous. Figured 7 days of these shoes would be the perfect way to do it

Plus I thought it'd be inspiring to share the results with all of you as a kind of Lucky Magazine/wear one thing multiple ways post.  So here goes...

Day #1:
With a Kate Unger LBD and vintage sweater. Simple. Boring.  Meh.


Day #2:

With DVF wrap dress and Burberry Trench for my mom's birthday dinner at the delish Fat Fish.
She wore animal prints. I meow her.

Day #3:

Forever 21 dress and jacket with YSL purse. Inspired by my mom the night before. LOVE this look.

 And so did an engineer at my office. He must have been in his 50s, someone's dad, but he practically clapped his hands when he saw them.  And when I said the heels are a bit ominous, a little Hitchock's The Birds, he lit up like a Chirstmas tree,said, "THEY ARE! You MUST work in marketing." 

Which I do.  Love, love love.

Day #4:

With Zara cargo trousers, a gray tee and little black jacket. Creative, casually fab, random look. A+


Day #5:

With Madewell jeans, Phillip Lim top, YSL jacket and purse for sushi with my mom.  Hodgepodge of a look but I likes it.

Day #6:

With H&;M skirt and Forever 21 top, Thomas Wydle scarf, new LA Fashion District necklace to watch 127 Hours with my mom.  She was wearing a statement ring too.

A little too much going on but at least I went for it. Balls out.

Kinda like cutting your arm off in cave. GO SEE THE MOVIE! I promise it will change your perspective.

Day #7:

With liquid/latex leggings from American Apparel, denim work shirt from H&M, Gucci scarf and Chanel bag to meet my new favorite friend at Saks for an Elle/Surfrider/Ralph Lauren event hosted by Minnie Driver.

This last outfit was probably my FAVORITE. Mostly because it was practically identical to what Claire from Beverly Hills 90210 was wearing!!! We arrived in the same elevator. She seemed pissed. HA!

Saks Fifth Avenue

And even though the Miu squared heels got NON-STOP compliments at the event, I think they paled in comparison with the HOT boots my friend was wearing.

Ugh. Adore a girl who ups the ante and inspires ME.

Which day gets your winning vote?

So excited for you! Those shoes are fun and gorgeous. They make any outfit so glam! :)

I love that you challenged yourself, and stuck with it. If I had to pick a favorite, I would say #4/cargo pants. I love the insouciant vibe of wearing shoes to die for with more casual pieces.

Rachee said...

love the 7 day challenge! Miss your outfit posts, mas por favor. How adorbs is your momma!

How exciting that you got something from your holy grail list!! You look fabulous in your new Miu Mius. I might have to start saving my pennies now for a pretty pink box next year because they are killing me with all of the striped platforms that I've been seeing for Spring 2011.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be day 7. A hint of casual, a hint of edge with the leggings, the shoes add a touch of whimsy and you got a hater look from a former 90210-er. Icing on the cake!!! :)
