Topshop ‘Prism’, £90
Four days to go until pay day, and what happens? Oh, Topshop just go and release the most perfect red patent heels ever, that’s all. And as soon as I looked at them, I knew there was absolutely NO CHANCE of them still being available when I had the money to buy them: oh no, these would be a “sold out in hours” kind of shoe, and as it turns out, I was right – they appeared on the Topshop website this morning, and are already sold out in my size and a few others. GAH.
These shoes are part of Kate Bosworth’s latest capsule collection for Topshop, and they’re also available in matte black and snakeprint, neither of which are as attention-grabbing as this bright red (Topshop describe it as “burgundy”, so perhaps my monitor is playing tricks on me and they’re not quite as attractive as I think they are), but which have the same sleek shape and 5″ heel. Because I can’t have them, I’m trying to comfort myself with the knowledge that 5″ heels with no platforms aren’t the most comfortable shoes in the world (and that’s an understatement), but, nope, it’s no use: I still want them.
If you do too, head over to the Topshop website: my size is long gone, but there are still some sizes available at the time of writing. They probably won’t be around for long, though, so don’t say I didn’t warn you!
