Shoes by Chloé via Vestiaire Collective, Hellhound print by womanarchy

There’s a huge sense of satisfaction that comes from finally getting something you’ve wanted for a very long time. These Chloé shoes have been on my wishlist for a couple of years now, so when I saw them listed on Vestiaire Collective, a used designer clothing site (and one of my biggest obsessions lately), I couldn’t resist.

It’s no secret that my favorite fashion house is Chloé: I love the practical, cool-girl aesthetic that’s been the label’s mantra since its inception. My sister bought me the Chloé: Attitudes book for Christmas, and it’s so fun to flip through the vintage photos and learn about the first luxury prêt-à -porter house ever. Did you know that Gaby Aghion’s family objected to her starting Chloé because they didn’t want a young, wealthy woman to have a career? Aghion’s rebellious and carefree philosophy, born in the age of Dior and Balenciaga haute couture, has persisted as Chloé’s vision for over sixty years. It’s so inspiring.
