Hi ladies, so I went to Barneys today thinking that I am gonna find that perfect pair of CL. Well, I was first distracted by a pair of lanvin flat at Barneys that is on sale. Normally I would not spend $550 on the simple ballet flats but since they are on sale and I do want a pair of black flats so I had to get them. And of course, I tried on more CL shoes. As most of you recommended many CL shoes need to go half size bigger than usual, well, I wear US 7 most of the time so I figure 37.5 in Cl may fit....I actually saw the suede lady gres in green on sale and LOVE them, but 37.5 actually was too big (long). So for lady gress I may actually need a 37 (but they don't have that size). Another sale pair I love was the Bunny, but this style has very narrow cut, I found a pair of 37.5, width-wise it may stretch after a few wear but the shoes (esp the left one) are too long for my feet! My left foot kept coming out.... Ok, so since those on sale shoes don't work, I also try on N. Prive (pretty black patent leather) and O My Sling (electric blue!!!) both in 37.5. Both styles seem to have perfit width and length for me in 37.5 BUT the elastic is way too loose esp. for the N Prive style! The SA said I can have a cobbler to cut and make the elastic shorter for a perfect fit....has anyone got that done before?? I also tried on Very Prive in 37.5 (again, too long and doesn't hold my heel thought the width is fine) and 37 (the width is too narrow for me....). So far my conclusion is I need to get sling back styles with elastic so at least I can get that shortened....pump style maybe just too long (or too narrow if I go 37..), except that 37 in the lady gres style may actually work....that would be my dream shoes. Now I am also thinking about this pair....does anyone have these? How's the fit, are they also cut narrow? Should I go 37, 37.5 or 38?? BTW, I have yet to find the other 2 styles recommended by a few ladies here, simple pump and architek to try on!
