intro

Hi and welcome! This is Black Saliva, a style focused blog written by Viivi Vanessa R.

I'm a 24 year old girl from Helsinki, Finland and this blog is my own little space on the internet where I can share my thoughts, outfits and write a bit about my life and stuff that I do.

For first timers, I'd say take a quick look at ABOUT ME and get to know me a little before browsing through my posts.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and leave me a comment.
Enjoy your stay!

vault sandals


Some sharp-eyed readers might have noticed the new shoes in the previous post, but it's okay even if you didn't, because here's some better pictures of them!

I ordered these Vault platform sandals from Unif some time ago and finally got them after agonizing 3 and half weeks long wait. Ugh, their shipping used to take maximum 5 days so I was okay with paying $20 for it. Now they have two shipping options. The cheaper one (which I used) is $18 and the express shipping is quite salty $35. Turns out the pricey express shipping is the same they had before for $20 and the cheaper one takes waayy longer than the promised 1-2 weeks. Boohoo, Unif, why are you doing this to me.

Anyway, the shoes are made of leather, they look pretty rad and.... they're giving me 3 blisters on BOTH feet. I'm currently trying to break them in by wearing band-aids over the spots where I can feel the blisters are most likely to form and walk short distances with them. The leather should give in, but I have no idea how long it will take before they'll be comfy to wear.... If you have any tips, they're more than welcome!

Also, they jingle quite a lot when walking, so sneaking around is pretty much impossible lol.

Damn my bare legs look ugly in these close-ups.

  1. Maybe wear socks and walk around alone at home? Socks are thicker than no socks and should therefore expand the leather a little bit and make it softer. Seems legit at least. :P

    Also, was loving the bare legs, like "OMG! So nice to see someone posting their bare, pale legs and just owning it!" until that last comment... You're not owning it. :(

  4. Wolylla on sellaista nahanvenytysainetta, nopeutti ainakin mun nahkaballerinojen "sisäänajoa", kun kengät meinasivat olla liian kapeat...

  5. I would suggest to wipe the insides with 100% spirit and wear the sandals with the thickest socks (or 2-3 layers of socks) you can find and walk around your apartment. It´s the best way to break in leather shoes :)

  6. Siis mä niin tiiän sen tunteen, kun on ostanu aivan ihanat kengät ja tahtois vaan käyttää niitä mut sit ei tavallaan pysty, koska niistä tulee rakkoja paikkaan jos toiseenkin :( Just itekin ostin ton tyyppiset kengät (ne ei ehkä oo laadultaan niin hyvät kuin noi sun mut whatever XD) ja oon vaan käyttänyt niitä sukkien kanssa, vaikka näyttääkin semi pöljältä. Ja sit kans pidän niitä välillä väkisin kotona, jotta jalka tottuis ja muotoutuis kunnolla niihin. Kannattaa ehkä kokeilla tota yhden anonyymin ehdotusta saunasta!

    Noi kengät on kumminkin tosi kivan näköiset! <3

  7. I was just thinking how gorgeous your legs look before I read your comment about them. Disagree! I think we all tend to pick on ourselves for our perceived physical flaws, but your legs are flawLESS~*~

  8. Hei! Muistan sun kertoneen joskus ettet käytä rintaliivejä. Haluaisin kysyä ootko huomannu että rinnat ois sen myötä alkanu roikkumaan? Oon lukenu siitä, että rintojen pitäs antaa olla ilman liivejä mah. paljon että muodostaisivat oman tukikudoksensa eikä näin ollen alkais niin helposti roikkua ja nyt mietin onko se totta. Anteeks jos liian henk koht. :-D Oot ainoo keneltä keksin tätä kysyä.

    1. Itse asiassa se kylläkin vähän riippuu rintojen koosta. Pieniä rintoja voi pitää ilmankin liivejä, koska rintakudos ei ole silloin epätavallisen painava ja jaksaa kannatella itseään. Pienet rinnat on tässä yhteydessä maksimissaan isoin A-kuppi. Isommille rinnoille kannattaa kyllä pukea rintaliivit koska silloin rintakudoksen määrän ollessa suurempi, se myös painaa enemmän. Tällöin rintakudoksen venymisen lisäksi vaivoina voi ilmetä myös selkä- ja hartiakipua, sekä nivelten ja lihasten jumittumista. Sanoisin että C-kupista ylöspäin ehdottomasti rintsikat päälle.

  9. Joskus muistaakseen kommentoit erilaisia kynsitrendejä, joten mua kiinnostais kuulla sun mielipide uusimpiin trendeihin, kuten esimerkiksi akvaariokynsiin ja huulipunan muotoon leikattuihin kynsiin.
