Laika, I just bought a new pair of the gold shoes on ebay.... I'm a bit considered about the size to be honest, although the measurements suggest that they will fit me fine... how are you finding yours? (crossing my fingers to be one of your true to size pairs...)

As long as you have not sized down, you should be fine. Mine are a half size bigger than normal (so they are super comfy) but I think I could have worn my normal size as well.

I bought a pair of the gold croc embossed heels from last season in my real size (37) because they were the last pair available, and I would have appreciated the extra wiggle room for my toes. They definitely fit, but for the first couple of outings, it was a bit uncomfortable.

This thread is inspiring a lot of envy for me! Off to sigh longingly over my yoox dreambox . . .

Can't let this little beauty of a thread die so I'm inclined to post irrelevant though beautiful pictures as these items are so not avail.

Let's hope these turn up on ebay...

*Sorry if this tidbit is totally OT and incredibly prohibited.

wiw - that is my favorite Dries spring collection. It was the collection that got me interested in Dries actually! I always feel so sad that I never got a pair of those silver flats. I dream about them still!

I have a few things from that collection. The grey dress (3rd pic you posted), a chiffon top, a blue skirt, and a black mesh wrap vest. Here are two outfits I had posted in the waywt thread a while ago, showing the last 3 items. That blue top/skirt outfit was head to toe Dries

^ You're a vision. Perfect Dries girl, imo.

That was such an epic collection for him. He always has a stunner but that collection still leaves me breathless...

thanks for the nice comments everyone!

softgrey, I cannot believe you have the same grey dress! I almost bought it in a beautiful burgundy color but decided last minute on the grey. Even though I love it, I hardly ever wear it. My fiance calls it my "tatty" dress I kind of wish I got the burgundy instead ...

luckyme - thank you, that is so nice of you to offer to look out for the flats for me! Although I've pretty much given up hope *sigh*

Softgrey, you're lovely! I love the third look, esp. Dries is so good when it comes to versatility.
