I have been wanting to scratch the new shoe
in the form of velvet slipper itch.
I craved these Kitty flats by Charlotte Olympia at Xmas.
|I will meow for you all day long for almost £500.|
Then I discovered these slippers that you could customize slippers in this post.
|Bespoke slippers at Myslippers.co.uk|
|Rather adorable but at that price I would rather go on holiday and see real wildlife than on my feet.|
As I could not justify the prices for flat shoes -
yes, there is a different rationale and economic formula for high heels - I just put this idea on the backburner.
Then I went to - drumroll please - Forever 21.
I had a few friends, neighbours, and some bloggers enthusiastically mention this brand. They all said it was the new Primark / H & M / Topshop rolled into one. But for some reason it just went into the miscellaneous knowledge file in my brain until I walked past it this weekend with a spare half hour.
It was the usual retail sensory blitz of bright lights reflecting off every surface and I was hesitant to explore. I am not a good forager. I would have died if I were alive during the caveman era.
But I gravitated towards the roomiest part of the shop floor which was the new arrivals area as people were crammed in the sale section.
Then I saw them.
It's been a while since I fancied something at first sight so
this made me feel all teenager-y again.
For that reason alone, I purchased them.
I present you my new crush.
|I love grey - tick. I love flannely cotton - tick. I love pearls. Hat-trick.|
|My good girl - proper posture pose.|
|My "Amelie ", coy, Bon Chic Bon Genre pose.|
And they were less than twenty pounds!
Don't tell anyone but I would have paid triple that for these.
Here is the proof!
