Last week I was drawn into a conversation about shoes, much against my will, with my boss. She was both horrified and amused to discover that I have rather a lot (around 100 pairs including sandshoes which do not count). Being an elegant Italian she takes the less is more approach to accessories, provided that the less is Gucci of course. However, in the interests of science she has set me the task of wearing a different pair of shoes every day to work until I have exhausted all possible options.
Today is day one of the shoe challenge. Outside conditions are good (fine dry spring day) but I am slightly injured. Yesterday while running barefoot on the grass with the Minx I stepped on a bee. Now I have two big toes on my right foot. However, the red lump will go quite nicely with my plan which is the Russell & Bromley cherry heeled mules. My pal CI talked me into buying these one warm Edinburgh day. He suggested strenuously that I should buy the bag that went with it. To my regret, I did not and yes, I am sorry now.
