    As the very pretty collage by me, shown above, displays... I AM LUSTING FOR SANDAL BOOTS! This lust is fuelled (and was started) by the heinous/genius Jane Alridge of Sea of Shoes.

    #1 on the Lust Choice would obviously be her Martin Margielas, preferably in camel which LUCKY HER SHE ALSO OWNS, but Ebay only yields the black. As luck would have it THEY ARE IN MY SIZE, but cost USD 1, 188. No kidding. (Evidence.)

    On the more sensible Lust List would be the ones labelled in a funky "#1" above on the collage. They cost USD 28.99 (Check). Best thing? They're available sizes 35 through 39, so as I once read I could actually order 38 and 39 and then just send 39 back if it's too big, or 38 if it's too small. (Although that would be stupid because I would have to pay the return shipping cost.) USD 28.99 is about SGD ... 42. WHAT. (I thought it would be about 32 SGD!) Okay, maybe I shouldn't want them so much.

    #2 on my Lust & Sensibility list is the flatter, definitely less desirable gladiator version, which costs USD 26.99 for the buyer who offers sizes 5-8 (here) but USD19.99 for the buyer who offers size 8 only (here). (If you want to buy the latter now it's 39.99. Whoa.)

    I still want the $42 one though. I BET my mother's bought SGD 50-plus shoes before. Then again... GRAH. Plus, they're 8 cm high, so I'm not very sure, but they ARE the surest way to grab this trend. I haven't seen it around Platinum before I think. I wonder if there are any made-to-order shoe shops around. I want those Margielas!!! The design is exquisite!!!

    P.S. Are my eyes deceiving me? These apparently cost USD 0.99 with 0 bids. Granted, the laces don't look very nice with the boots, but if purchased in black the contrast might not be too obvious.
