The weather recently has been so drab and dull that I decided some treats were in order. I really do enjoy shopping on line..and my daughter had sent me a link to some shoes she was tempted to buy. Always a dangerous thing to do as when I opened up the link I was presented with some rather glorious shoes. Between emails we both chose a style we loved. We are both girls who chose to wear kitten heels when we dress up. I adore high heels but they are just not practical for walking any distance in! As a doctor my daughter walks miles every day; my excuse is that my feet are just a little older now. When I first met my Hb (in 1979..a lifetime ago I know and I was still at school) I used to wear 6" heels. It was not for a few weeks that he realised that I was actually 5' 4" tall not 5'10"" but that's another story!
After some deliberation at the computer I pressed the buy button and waited.....
A few days later the door bell rang (luckily it was my non work day) and I was handed a parcel by Mr Postie.I was so surprised by the box I unwrapped that I had to get out my trusty camera and show you.
Just look at that for a shoe box!!
I then slid open the box to reveal this gorgeous tissue wrapping paper.
And hidden inside all this....
The most deliciously indulgent pair of kitten heel purple suede shoes with an incredible silky soft lining to die for !!
Even the soles are patterned!
I love my new shoes but I was even more delighted by the way they had been presented, it does make an enormous impression. They are also SO comfy to wear.
And to finish off this rather self indulgent post here are my other 2 purchases.............
We have a Cath Kidston shop in nearby Wimbledon and over the holiday my Hb and I went to Wimbledon Village for lunch. As we walked past the shop and saw the words "Sale" in the window our lunch got delayed a little...well I had to go in and take a look didn't I?
When we had our trip to York in November we visited the Cath Kidston shop there and I admired all the wares but decided it was far too near to Christmas to buy anything. I had admired this little bag there so when I went into the Wimbledon branch and saw the reduced price tag it just said "buy me"....the rest is history!
My final purchase was actually "earned", I used my Christmas bonus from work to treat myself to a new "everyday" handbag.......
from my favourite handbag brand, Radley.
Naughty I know but as I said to my Hb..........
they were all in the sale....!!!
Have a self indulgent weekend too, go on, you all deserve it ;0)
