SHOESday: I'll get you my pretties!

Fortunately I didn't have to drop my house on the Wicked Witch of the East to do so!
I first saw these on a blog (I think) of someone in the US (I think...I really can't remember who!). Then I saw them again on Gidget's Socks, and she was kind enough to tell me where she bought them - and so of course I was there in a flash! A sparkly red glittery flash! Even my husband said "oh yes, you HAD to have those!" when I showed them to him!
And I've worn them every time I've gone out of the house since I got them! Ruby slippers for the 21st century woman!

They are perfect and they do match the socks so well. Were there green shoes?? There have not been any green shoes at all this year. So far.

Have you been clicking your heels together to get to places? They look wonderful :)

Great socks too!

I love sparkly shoes! I really want a pair with lights in the soles like they make for kids. I would wear them to work all the time instead of my grown up shoes.

Very fabulous. Very you!

On a separate note I recently bought a pair, the same colour green as the wollemeise in your last post. They are gorgeous. Very me. Can't wait for autumn to wear them all the time :)

Those are simply marvelous! Ruby slippers indeed!

When I first read that I thought you meant "I" was the wicked witch of the east and that you had dropped on me on Monday. I now wish I had taken a photo of you perched at the train station knitting when I picked you up....with your splarkly shoes on.

Gidgetknits said...

Oh brilliant! I've been waiting to see your pair on the blog. We should seriously knit Count Sockular socks to go with our sparkly red Converse shoes!

Caffeine Girl said...

Ooh! I'm so jealous. You do have a knack for finding the best shoes!

mooncalf said...

Aha! They're my shoes. My lovely ruby red slippers that took me to New York!

I hope they take you to magical places too.

Mine are looking a little the worse for wear after a muddy trip to the New Forest at the weekend. Still sparkling on though!

Gloriously kitsch!

Oh, you weren't just kidding! These remind me of Gianna's pink ones but in red. Fabulous!
