I have never been a red shoes kind of girl but for some unexplainable reason, these shiny, kitsch, red shoes appealed to me in the same way that marshmallow Easter eggs appeal to my taste buds. I was obviously meant to have them – they had my size and they fitted like a good pair of jeans. Don’t you love it when that happens? The best part about buying shoes though is the compulsory cappuccino from Vida e Caffe afterwards. I met up with Jem and couldn’t wait to see the expression on his face when he saw the shoes.
“Close your eyes hunni, I’ve got something to show you”
“What did you buy?” he said inquisitively.
“Some uber cool shoes – you can open your eyes now!” I replied, brimming with excitement.
“What are those?” he said with a look of utter horror all over his face.
“Heh heh, they’re so kitsch but don’t you just love them?” Clearly not
“uh……no” he said
So girls even if you don’t like red shoes, be warned, a pair will call out your name someday, and for some unexplainable reason you’ll be attracted to them like a mirage in a desert, you’ll buy them and be a red shoe convert from then on.
