Farfetch.com promises to fetch visitors the best and brightest of goodies from around the globe, delivered directly from far-off locales. Therefore, the site features one of the most interesting selections of shoes, clothing, and accessories around.
Though even the sale items at farfetch.com may be too expensive to splurge on at the moment, the sale section, particularly the sale shoe section, is definitely worth an inspirational peek once in a while.
For example, on my last visit, I was awed by the artistic construction of purple suede pumps by Chie Mihara (from Maison Nipi, Vigevano), the angled ergonomics of calf-length boots by Opening Ceremony (from SIX, London), and the scalloped classiness of gray patent leather peep toe heels by Emporio Armani (also from Maison Nipi).
Btw, last time I visited farfetch.com, they even had the Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Lady Dragon shoes featured by Meilily in salmon, but unfortunately they sold out. Farfetch.com still has other unique Melissa shoes though, like the oddly appealing Mistrey by Melissa rubber gladiator sandals.
More Details on Shoes Shown Above:
Shoes shown above from left to right: Chie Mihara purple suede pumps ($131 on sale), Emporio Armani patent leather peep toe heels ($158 on sale), Mistrey by Melissa rubber gladiator sandals ($57), Alexander McQueen embroidered ankle strap heels ($473 on sale), and Opening Ceremony calf-length boots ($215 on sale).
While I probably won’t be able to afford to buy any of said shoes anytime soon, even at 50% off, I feel like I have had a brush with greatness just looking at them. Such is the genius of farfetch.com – material inspiration for us mere mortals (a.k.a. eye candy for the soul).
Happy Window Shopping! from Meilily
