Oktoberfest: Shoe Challenge No.65

Shoe ChallengeShoes: Guess
Worn with: Dirndl, bag by Prada, headband by H&M, brooch by Lanvin x H&M.

Living in Munich, I couldn’t let the Oktoberfest pass without going at least once, so I took a mini-break from writing my graduation paper and spent the afternoon at the Oktoberfest. We had a nice lunch, rode on the big ferris wheel and visited the performance at “Auf geht’s beim Schichtl“, the oldest theatre at the Okotberfest. Here’s the view from the ferris wheel:

Of course, I also got a nice Lebkuchen-Heart – I look forward to them every year:

And here’s the shoes of the day, a pair by Guess which were a birthday present last year:

So this is me in my Dirndl, the traditional Bavarian dress. I always feel there’s not enough opportunities to wear my traditional dresses (apart from the Oktoberfest) so I decided on this one on Saturday evening, when I went to see a Bavarian theatre with my mom and friends. Despite the miserable weather (isn’t it supposed to be summer right now?!) we had a wonderful evening, as the theatre was a lot of fun!
The shoes are a lucky sale find – the last pair, my size, a fraction of the original price, irresistible! I have had these for a very long time, since I was still in high school when I bought them – I remember that so well as I decided I HAD to wear them that same day I bought them for clubbing….bad idea – in the morning the hole pattern (see below) on the shoes was imprinted on my feet, which were in a lot of pain and I had to nearly limp home….despite that not too great first memory, I do love this pair, and they actually are comfortable now and are worn quite regularly.
