Taking pictures of my old battered Fendi boots made me realize that my REAL favourite boots are my Givenchy ones. Hold on! It’s not as if I have a row of designer shoes lined up – I scramble the sales, never throw away anything, buy on the high street and in vintage shops to be able to splash out from time to time – And even after several years these boots make me happy every time I set my eyes on them. It’s not just a visual thing… You know how terribly difficult it is to find shoes that look good (i.e. make your legs look slim and shapely and give your figure a bit of a lift), but not make you limp in pain after wearing them for 20 minutes (20…? 5!)? Let me tell you, these boots are nearly too good to be true – I walked through Paris with them for days and could still hold my head up high*.
*As you can see in the picture; but come on, you can’t have these gorgeous French chicks make you feel all inadequate, can you?!
OK, I promise this will be the last shoe post for a while. 1st I don’t have any other boots worth mentioning (hold on, there are some MiuMius somewhere, but they are really sensible walking boots) and also I start feeling like a shoe fetishist. (Anything wrong with this?)
