I know, I know…
When I ordered the peach version of these shoes almost a year ago, I sent them back because didn’t like the colour and I didn’t like the fit. I knew it was the right decision, but at the same time, I never really got those Lady Dragons out of my head. Every time I spotted someone wearing them (on the Internet, natch: my town isn’t really a plastic, heart-shaped-shoe kinda place), or saw them for sale, I’d feel a little pang of regret that they weren’t mine, so when I found them in Saks on the second-last day of my vacation, on sale, in a size that fit me perfectly (a European size 36, as it turns out, which is a full size smaller than I’d usually wear, but these do seem to come up large), and in a gold and red combo that I liked much better than the ill-fated peach shoes… well, it would’ve been rude not to just buy them, wouldn’t it?
OK, so maybe not. But I’d definitely have regretted it, because I put them on as soon as they were legally mine, and discovered that my life has been incomplete without a pair of gold plastic shoes with gigantic hearts on the front. I mean, WHO KNEW? I’ve worn them once already, but didn’t get any photos, so I’ll try to get them out again soon for a Shoe Challenge. Speaking of which, I have a camera full of photos to post at some point this week (turned out I was much too lazy to do any more blogging while I was gone), but I just got back this morning and haven’t slept since Friday (and as well as the shoes, I also brought a heavy cold home with me), so I’m going to go and do that now, and let the Shoe Challenges wait until another day – not least because I can hardly bear to look at the photos without wanting to burst into tears at the thought of being home. Also: cold remedy. Must take some cold remedy….
(These shoes, by the way, only bring my total to 76 pairs, because I had a bit of a clear-out before my vacation. Yes, I’m a filthy rotten shoe-challenge cheat!)
