I had this dress the Mr Blue-eyes bought for me at Anthropologie in NY the other year (how i wish they were or delivered here).
So the dress ticked the red box but needed vamping up in the shoe dep. Shoes and i have a fractious relationship, i appreciate what they bring to an outfit but my feet don't get on well with most shoes in the store. I'm a 6.5 C and most shoes are just too narrow.
So I am well accustomed to seeing a lovely shoe and feeling like one of cinderella's step-sisters as i try to jam my bunions in.
Birkenstocks are my shoe of choice in warmer months although i know they don't work for all situations.
So when i set off on my mission today to find a hot red medium heel round or peep-toe i knew it would be challenging.
Lunchtime today included visits to 5 shoes stores and the David Jones shoe dept before i found these by Scooter in Emporium.
Amazingly i can walk in them comfortably without wobbling or wincing after 5min.
I've been wearing them around the office today strutting about to make sure they last the distance tomorrow night.
In other news some in Sydney may have noticed that Lincraft had dissappeared from Pitt St mall leaving a sewing/crafty gap in the city. Well it is reopening in the Supre basement of what was the old Gowings building. Very exciting to have this back within reach, especially with my increased craftiness inspired by Brown Owls.
