For months I have longed for a pair of shoes. Sleek, black suede, they have a high, wedge heel with a peep toe and an ankle strap. Elegant, retro, 1950’s chic. I’ve gazed at them online. I’ve stood at the shop window and stared. I’ve checked on eBay – and checked again – for unexpected bargains.
Then, today, I had my head turned, faithless as I am. In the sale they were: 1/3 off! Nestled discreetly on the shelf, they sat amongst the dull and the gaudy, the flat and the trashy, the frankly mundane.
I tried them on. A perfect fit! They are beautiful, pink and meant for me.
