Shoe Challenge #21: London Meets Beirut

WHAT:   Black Skull Flats, Vivaro
WHEN: Saturday December 3rd, 2011
WHERE: London Meets Beirut Conference at OSB
WITH: Top: TopShop / Jacket: Somewhere in LA / Jeans: Old Navy / Beanie + Sunglasses: H&M / Scarf : Gift from Alex and Angie / Bag: Vintage, borrowed from Mom. 

My trusty black flats died, yea you know the ones from the Loca Loca Loca challenge post? The ones which have been in my shoe closet since 2007? Yea, they died. So I had to find replacements! Let me tell you, shopping for black flats is very annoying. Not because "oh boo hoo" I have to buy a pair of shoes *boo hoo*. What is annoying is trying to find a decent pair of black flats without getting distracted, because all of a sudden all the sensible yet cute black flats have vanished from the market. All that's left are the pretty, colorful, shiny and sky high stilettos that call your name, which  might I add you should NOT buy because you know you're not going to wear them. What can I say? First world problems (coming from a girl who lives in the developing world, oh the irony).
Anywaayyyssss, I finally found a pair.
Nothing special, a plain shoe with an awesome skull on it.. 
Comfortable + twenty bucks = Welcome to my shoe closet little one!

I had the opportunity to save them on Saturday when I attended the "London Meets Beirut" conference on innovation in the design industry at the Olayan Business School (at ma luv-a-lee university, AUB). It was a very interesting conference with very cool speakers from London, like Steven Siegel from Not Just a Label, Philip Delamore from London College of Fashion, and Ursula Geisselmann from Wallpaper* magazine. If you're interested in reading more about the conference, you can read all the tweets on the #LondonMeetsBeirut hashtag on twitter. 

My last midterm is on Thursday so hopefully after that I'll be able to resume my semi-regular posting schedule :)
