If the Shoe Fits......

buy a pair in every color!!  Oh  *Repetto, how do I love thee??  Let me count the colors.   Even if your ballerina days are long past, you can still indulge here.  Have a look at their latest collection!  Miam, miam!  Maybe this time they will be open and I can step inside and have a look around. I have no idea the cost. I'm pretty sure I won't be bringing home a pair but I still have hope! ( Do you think they will allow photographs!)

*Their website is marvelous!

Shoes! I'm liking the range of colours too, V.

PJ said...

They remind me of macarons, such pretty colors.

I thought that our house was the only place that has Lazy Susan's for shoes....

It looks like there might be some nice dance shoes in the back there too! Pretty!

As Paula said, the colours remind me of macarons, too! The shoe departments in the Boxing Day sales here looked NOTHING like this. "Dishevelled" springs to mind.

We are too much alike, V! I had the Repetto window up for today and changed it at the last minute... Please buy a pair while you are there in red, pink, chartreuse.... miam-miam!

Thérèse said...

I like them and I like the picture! But the Repettos just don't fit my legs! :)

Daryl said...

I suspect they are about $200 here in the States ..

Carla said...

HI Virginia,, what a wonderful picture of the shoes we so love. Carla

Starman said...

They are colorful.

Virginia said...

Hello from Cincinnati! Mary and I have had a fun day and we leave for Paris tomorrow around 3:45. Thank you all for stopping by with your comments.. Carla, hope to see you while we're there!!

Daryl,,, non, Repetto ballet flats will not be coming home with me!

Twins separated at birth! HAAA Love your new profile photo.

I sort of figured that was the case at your house..

Alexa said...

As a former baby ballerina, I'm with you—these are beyond fabulous. Hope you get there and buy a pair for yourself! Bon voyage; amuse-toi bien!
My WV is "ingot"—no doubt a sign that you should get a pair of gold Repettos. :~}

Couldn't help but think of Mark Knopfler's excellent song about shoes :


"She's going shopping for shoes
She wants them in magenta and Caribbean blue
Platinum and buttercup lilac and black
They fill a bucket up and laugh behind her back
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you

In New York and Paris on the Champs Elysées
They see her coming from a long way
They clap their hands together when they get her in their store
She's gonna wanna get more more more and more and more
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you

Everyone's gone Jackie O
She was a regular here
We thought madame would like to know
We've got the blood red rouge right here

Now we've got all of madame's requisites and all in madame's size
Madame's taste is truly exquisite she must accessorise
The belts are alligator the bags are kangaroo
Enchanté? may I say the jade was made for you
Imelda baby Imelda baby what to do
All the poor people saying that they gotta quit paying for you"

How'd you get into my closet?

alice said...

The cost is 150 euros for the less expensive but you can design your own pair (more expensive then...)

Virginia said...

That's the best. Mer ci!!

ONLY 150e??? HA

My closet is full of shoes but not this pricey. I do love them though. I must go in and nose around . It was closed when i took this photo.

I trust you were able to pare down your many choices and not need a shipping container for your footwear on this Paris jaunt ...

Buon viaggio!
