Interesting mix

My outfit last night. Salmon coloured shirt from Zara, dark green bubble skirt that was once a dress from Bershka, flower-print scarf borrowed from my mum for the evening and my grandma's vintage black belt. My purple shoes, the only expensive part of this outfit, are Chie Mihara. They cost 100 euros reduced from 200. Bargain!

In fact, before writing this post I never thought of checking them out online, but I'm glad I did. Their site is really easy to navigate, simple but pleasant to the eye, and they have some really cute designs, mostly vintage-inspired and a bit chunky one might say, but still utterly modern and beautiful.

They are also designed by a really interesting person. Chie Mihara is a young woman born of Japanese parents in Brasil, who has lived in Japan, New York and Spain. She has worked for Charles Jourdan and Junko Koshino, but most importantly she has internshiped in the orthopedic shoe store Eneslow. Aha! So that's way they're so damn comfortable! Thanks Chie!
