waxing philosophic on satin

Lanvin_satin >> Satin shoes -- they always scare me. They're really pretty to look at, and I love the texture, but if you accidentally get them wet, or dirty, or snag them on something, I feel like they're done for.  At least leather looks good beat up and worn in and maybe a little dirty (for some shoes, anyway, I guess not for nice shoes, but at least you can wipe them off).  Like these Chloe ballerina slippers  (left, below) -- they are beautiful, and I love the big floppy ties, but I would automatically get them in black, Chloe_satinbecause if the sand color sees any kind of dust, its new color will be mud.  Why couldn't Chloe just have made the slippers in leather -- for those of us who want to wear them more often than once?
