After a long, long quest (seriously, think Alice in Wonderland trying to find whatever she’s looking for) I finally found these black beauties.

I’ve been looking for simple, elegant black leather pumps like these for ages (*exaggerated for effect*) and last week they were there. Standing in a store I rarely go to. Totally unexpected. Love at first sight. And now they’re mine! (*happy dance*)

And if that isn’t awesome enough… they also sit amazingly and weren’t that expensive! Hell yeah!

Are you still looking for that one perfect essential? A leather jacket, a furry coat, sneakers…? Love to hear!
