Diamond in the Rough

Shopping on eBay can be very frustrating at times, but it's always worth it if you are willing to dig a little for the gems. On my recent trip to DC I pretty much trashed my favorite pair of black maryjanes. They are salvageable, and I will certainly save them for dancing, or on rainy days when I don't way to ruin other shoes, but I still needed a replacement pair of black maryjanes.

I came across these shoes when someone on The Purse Forum had posted another of pair of shoes from the same seller. I bid on both pairs, but ultimately lost out on the second pair (black pony hair and lizard heels). Because the seller listed the item with only one picture, and had a vague description, I was skeptical of what condition they would arrive in. They arrived this morning and while the soles are a bit more worn than I'd like, for 80% off retail I'm not complaining. All in all, a great find for an incredible price.

The fishnets are from the ubiquitous sockdreams order. They are quite well-made and feature great diamond-net detailing on the sides (that go from the toe to the tops of the stockings). They don't seem to be available on the site anymore, but are available for purchase at several other websites.

Fit on the shoes is true-to-US size (37). They are a touch big on me, but I imagine as I purchased them used they have stretched quite a bit. Fit on the fishnets is "one size fits most, 90-160 lbs". They are very comfortable and the net pattern is pretty even from top to bottom.
