Hey guys! I need your help on something. Since last summer I've wanted a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Litas, and I know my Mum hates them (which would usually stop me from buying something) but with these I just can't get them out of my head. The only reason I don't already have a pair is that they're £120 and I think that's just stupid. However once I found out Office sold them - meaning I wouldn't have to buy from abroad - I started thinking more seriously about buying a pair.
However, I think Office are stopping selling them, as they've got next to no stock left, and my being a size 3 doesn't help.
There are tones and tones of replicas on eBay for about £35 or something, and usually I'd just buy them instead, but I've got it in my head that I want a real pair. In fact, I've got it in my head that I want a real pair and a replica pair, because I think if I get one, I'll regret it and wish a bought the other.
£120 is a lot to pay, and I know I would HATE spending that much on a pair of shoes, but then I'd know they're authentic and proper, and real leather so a bit more durable. I have also tried on the real ones in my size so I know that I can walk in them (lets remember the blog name!). Now if I bought a replica pair, there will be no guarantee that they will be exactly the same in height ie. the platform might not be as high as the original thus meaning I can't walk in them! I don't know the measurements of the originals so I can't compare. But we're also talking paying nearly £100 less!
Basically I'm really, really stuck on what to do. I think I'll be unhappy with whatever I do, but I still desperately want a pair! And I know I've got to make the decision soon before the real ones run out. What would you guys do? I need your opinions!
