Did you think I’d forgotten all about my Shoeper Shoe Challenge?
I promise I didn’t: I did actually get through a few different pairs of shoes last week, but the week was so busy I didn’t have time to photograph them, which, of course, means they don’t count! D’oh!
Anyway! Here is the first installment of the challenge, and after all of the trouble I went to to get my Mad Mary pumps in the first place, I figured it was only right that they should be the first pair of shoes I “rescued” by wearing them! As luck would have it, an opportunity to do just that presented it in the form of a friend’s birthday drinks on Saturday night, so the Mad Marys were GO!
I wore them with a purple dress from ASOS.com, and suspected I’d be the most overdressed person in the room, as usual, but as it turned out, I needn’t have worried, because people were wearing everything from jeans to sequined mini dresses!
These shoes are lots of fun to wear, and, of all of my shoes, are the ones that seem to get most attention: they always get lots of comments, and I’ve bonded with many a fellow shoe-lover who’s come over and asked me about them, so I guess they’re a good conversation-starter too.
So, one pair down, seventy pairs to go!
How’s everyone else getting on with their challenge?
