Miu Miu RUNS SMALL!

Miu Miu SS11 Cloquet Lurex Flats


Usually Miu Miu’s shoes are always true to size for me, but I was very surprised to find that these run small by half a size and are very narrow at the toe! I’m not too fond of the scrunched elastic heel which digs into my skin, but I got them on the last day of the NAP sale, plus I had a gift card, so it was a pretty good deal in the end.

Miu Miu since 2009

I haven’t really gotten my feet wet with Miu Miu yet, but these are a couple of items that I have acquired since 2009.

Miu Miu SS11 Platform Pumps in Cipria Patent Calf-Leather

– Purchased in 2011
– I realized that I had no nude pumps to match to one of my dresses (see Hervé Léger), so I went out and got these pumps. They match really well to my skin tone, better Jimmy Choo’s and CL’s nude colors, both of which are way too dark and yellow-toned (believe it or not, they look brown on me! CL’s bone color is on the other hand too pale). These Miu Miu pumps actually have a slight blue-ish lavender-like undertone which I think is perfect for me. Not only so, MM’s pumps have a built-in rubber sole and I think they’re much more comfortable than a similar style called Bianca by CL.

 

Miu Miu Calf Leather Belt in Patent Purple

– Purchased in 2010
– One thing that bothers me is that the buckle doesn’t hold!

 

Miu Miu FW09 Runway Capretto Contra Heels in Dark Rose Calf Leather

– Purchased in 2009
– Great pair of heels that I love to wear in the spring and autumn with some nice tights. The heel is striking!
