Huzzah! I have new shoes. New red shoes to be precise.
I asked for your advice a couple of weeks ago when I was pondering what type of Converse to choose for my first pair. Well, the replies were clear on one thing - you all loved Converse and I was about the only person in the world who didn't own a pair. Not any more though! There was some sound advice about going for a pair of solid coloured high tops, so I took that and chose a lovely red pair. Black would have been sensible, green would have been too obvious (I can't have green everything) and white or cream is just asking for trouble where I'm concerned - they would soon have been an attractive shade of dirt. Red it was. I do enjoy a bit of sassy colour on my feet.
The jumper was a holiday purchase when we popped into Harrogate for a spot of shopping. I wasn't going to buy it. Honestly, I wasn't. It was lurking on a sale rail but there was no reduced price sticker on the label and besides, I never buy burgundy things. I don't suit them; I'm too pale.
I am a notorious sucker for #wardrobezoo related things though and that made it worth taking up to the till to check if it really was on sale or not. It turned out that it was and that, combined with the lure of glittery gold owls, proved too strong for me to resist. I'm so easily pleased.
