These are the shoes that are currently sitting right at the very top of my “I want” list. They’re the famous Lady Dragon shoes from the Vivienne Westwood Anglomania/Melissa collaboration, and although I had my heart set on the nude/black combo, I wouldn’t say no to these ones, either, IF THEY WERE IN MY SIZE. Which they’re not. They’re also around £20 more expensive than they were when they were originally released last year, which is just the latest in a long saga concerning me and these shoes.
These, you see, are The Ones That Got Away. I managed to resist buying them when they were first released, telling myself that they were plastic, and what would I do with a pair of plastic shoes, really? But then time went by, and I thought, what WOULDN’T I do? And who knew plastic could be so. damn. pretty?
Anyway, I resisted, and then, of course, they sold out. Then they started appearing on eBay for £200 each. Which was around about the time I developed the Shoeperwoman Motto, which is:
“When you see shoes you love, in your size: BUY THEM. No, seriously: BUY THEM.”
Feel free to borrow this motto any time you like. You’re welcome.
The point of this post, however, wasn’t to whine about my lack of Lady Dragon shoes. (Well, it kind of was, but, you know.) No, the point was to inform you that they’re now back in stock at Coggles, although only in the blue/red shown above, and only in sizes 7 and 8 (UK). Naturally, I’m a size 4.
You know how it goes, though, folks: if the shoe fits, buy it – you can get them here.
