Introducing a new regular feature, right here, on my blog, every SHOESday.I thought I'd start with an old familiar fave, the shoe that you and I all know and love (well, maybe you don't love it as much as I do, and that's ok...I guess!). Deep purple velvet upper and shiny shiny perfect-shade-of-red shaped wedge heels. Divine!I had seen these shoes in a magazine for a very large amount of money, way out of my league. But on a trip to Singapore, I found them on sale, on HUGE sale, and in my size, which alone is quite an achievement - I have a large foot by Singaporean standards (size 39 or 8 to 8.5). So I gleefully snapped them up and have no regrets. In fact, they would have been worth paying full price, in hindsight. I feel like a million dollars when I wear these shoes - and since I don't have many (ok, no) red carpet events to attend, I wear them to work. And I love them - these are easily my favourite pair of shoes. Look at that heel - from the back so thin, looks like a regular heel, but then the wedge, the fabulously shaped wedge.
And the button closure - yes, it's a real velvet covered button. And the hidden pleasure of the inside of the shoe entirely lined in red leather. Shoe perfection!
Next week: my wedding shoes.
And if anyone else wants to play along, I'd love to see yours!
