Marc Jacobs Gladiator Boots

Look at what I found (amongst other things) and guess what’s coming to mama over the next few days: a pair of white Marc Jacobs Collection gladiator boots! I know everyone’s done the whole gladiator trend this year and thanks to Balenciaga’s spring 2008 collection, y’all will get a time extension on this trend. Anyway, I’ve been searching all summer for these shoes — I’m quite surprised how they appeared at Net-a-porter considering they’re sold out everywhere in America! I couldn’t wait any longer so I ordered a pair in white – for now at least.  I think I can sleep tonight knowing the white pair has been paid for and they should be able to ship it asap. LOL.

I have to admit I’m feeling a bit weird because the black one looks nice as well (approx. £300 which is about about $600). I want to get both but I wanna see if someone out there has a promo code; I’ll place
my other mammoth order the moment I get them (ugh Chloe. ugh Miu Miu) otherwise, we’ll see how it goes.

I chose the white ones because I want to wear them with shorts and tees and graphics and prints and short sleeved shirts tucked inside shorts with a belt etc.

OK FINE WHATEVER.

One of the reasons why I bought the white pair is because of the fact that I’ve been lurking around the Seven New York website for days now and I couldn’t purge the Raf Simons shorts (and sandals) out of my memory.

I know the footwear is totally different from each other but give me the Marc Jacobs booties any day; you all know I hate feet (quite possibly the only thing I have in common with Rachel Zoe) and I hate showing feet in public .

And then I also saw this look from Thakoon spring 2008. I’m not digging the print too much but I like the white printed shirt + white printed shorts combo.

Here’s what the black version looks like.

My Mexican online buddy Mauricio thinks the booties are nasty. In fact, he told me they look like "maid shoes".

Unfortunately, my mom shared the same sentiments as him.

Whatever. LOL. I like them boots. They’re not too severe unlike Mary Kate’s Chanel gladiators or the new Balenciaga spring ’08 ones.

Here’s a pic of Irina Lazareanu… are those the same shoes?

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

In any case, the white ones are on their way. I’m excited!
