YSL Palais Mary Janes

Remember last week, when I went down to LA for a quick trip? I spent a few hours during that time with the beautiful Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook. Wendy has always been so supportive and sweet – she was one of the first bloggers to let me interview her, and is a true professional.She also has an amazing wardrobe-  as soon Wendy walked through the lobby of the hotel, I knew I had to have her shoes. I was cooing over them like crazy and while we were talking, kept petting them like a maniac. Yes I have no concept of personal space (except mine).

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Suede Palais Mary Jane Pumps

The shoes finally arrived from Saks and I already wore them a few times tromping around outside which is super rare for me – usually I wait a few days or so in case I need to return them. But I was in super duper love at first sight (and wear!) I have a very special weakness for mary janes  – and I really really love YSL platforms – they are just so incredibly comfortable.

    Coup de foudre!
    To me, tan + almond toe + strap = in my closet but I am so very self conscious about the platform and heel. I might get vertigo! lol!

    I wish I could walk in platformed shoes that high. I want to but I'm embarassed to say that I look ridicilous when I try them on :))

    Oooohhhh, so pretty! Hahaha, I can totally picture you petting Wendy's shoes; I would, too. ;). Now you are able to pet your own to your heart's content! FYI, re: The Stronghold, HOW DID YOU KNOW? My husband wanted to name it Winterfell or King's Landing, but I told him that would be too GoT specific. The Keep was another option. 😉

    I would never be able to walk in them, but they look very good. Great color again, you can wear it during every season.

    Funny that you mention Wendy's Lookbook — I recently discovered her YouTube channel. And those shoes are INSANE (in a very good way). They're miles high, but still in a subdued color, so it totally works. And is that a Missoni print I spy? 😉

    Do these fit true to size??

    Congrats! These are beautiful!!

    Can you please review these on long distance walkability in comparison to other shoes? I've been torn with the idea of getting them (because at YSL I can walk in the them, you know, after the champagne confidence they give me or the carpeting that helps me float).

    I've considered them for graduation so I don't want to fall in them 😀 I know that Wendy finds them comfy for all day walking but I'm seeking other opinions <3

    OMG those are gorgeous! I usually "save" things awhile too before I wear them. Aren't we silly? 🙂 For me, it's not a return issue. It's a "I want to keep them/it pretty" issue. Ha!

    I do love a Mary Jane though! I have been looking for a comfortable black leather pair for awhile after my others "died". MJs are so perfect to wear with hosiery because they stay on my feet!

    May I ask if this runs true to size? I wear 35.5 in tribute sandal and 36 for tribtoo pump. Do you think I should order 35.5 or 36 for this maryjane? Please email me if you could as I am trying to order

    Thank you.
