It’s the box containing my latest pair of Sarenza Brand Ambassador shoes. (It’s also Rubin’s Hairy Bone, which has obviously decided it wants to appear in all of my photos fro now on. Weird.) I feel I have to justify it in some way, so let me just say this:
I had been drinking .
OK, that sounded bad, didn’t it?
Let me clarify: Shoeperman and I were having a bit of a movie night at home, and we’d opened a bottle of wine, as you do. So my willpower was significantly lowered, is what I’m trying to tell you.
Before I went to bed, I decided to just have a quick look at the Sarenza website. I had a gift code I still hadn’t used, you see, and I figured it wouldn’t hurt to take a look, so I loaded up the page, and hit up the “new arrivals” section.
And there they were.
Yes, I know, I know: I said I didn’t need any more the LAST time this happened. But back when I showed you the Vivienne Westwood/Melissa Fall 2011 collection, there was a particular pair of shoes that particularly took my fancy: the pink, glittery Lady Dragons.
And there they were on the Sarenza website, which I just so happened to have a code for.
And now here they are on my shoes shelves, where they belong:
They’re actually a slightly darker pink than I was expecting, judging from the product shots. It’s such a neutral kind of shade, though, that I think it’ll work almost as a “nude” and go with everything, which is one of the reasons I was drawn to this particular version. Well, that and the glitter, obviously.
So, I know that some might consider four pairs of jelly shoes to be just a tad excessive. I might even agree. But I blame the wine. IT WAS THE WINE, people.
But I do not regret it for one second.
Thank you yet again to the lovely people at Sarenza, for nurturing my jelly shoe obsession (and my Carvela obsession, too) so brilliantly! If you’d like to buy a pair for yourself, you can click here to do it, but if you’re a fellow jelly-shoe obsessive, rendered powerless by the sight of those oversized hearts, I feel it’s only fair to warn you that they also have them in red. I’m trying really hard not to think about the red…
