I may as well just admit this straight up: I bought four pairs of shoes this week. Yes, the Shoeper Shoe Challenge is getting, um, even more challenging with every week that passes, d’oh!
Of the four pairs, one pair was planned, two pairs were sale bargains I couldn’t resist, and the fourth pair… well, the fourth pair were the result of me going out on Sunday afternoon dressed like this:
Have you spotted the er, deliberate mistake here, readers?
Why, yes, those ARE two completely different boots! Yes they are! And yes, I DID actually go out in public without noticing I’d done this, which just goes to show you… actually, it just goes to show you that I’m a complete and utter idiot. Yes. Luckily, I’m a complete and utter idiot who realised her mistake almost as soon as she got out of the car, and was so embarrassed by it that she was forced to duck into the first shoe-selling store she came to (Thanks, New Look, I owe you one) and buy a pair of emergency shoes:
The emergency shoes cost £16, and proceeded to rub my heels raw as I walked around the shops in them for the next couple of hours, but hey, at least the left shoe matched the right shoe, hmm?
The full, humiliating story of how I managed to screw up the simple act of getting dressed can be found over at my personal blog, if anyone’s particularly interested. The slightly happier tale of the other three new pairs of shoes will be along soon, but for now let the record show that these red flats have officially become my 72nd pair of shoes, and been entered into the Shoeper Shoe Challenge. And not only that, they’ve already been worn, albeit completely by accident!
