I love wearing sandals whatever the weather, with or without tights peeking through.  I’ve spotted some gorgeous new heels (what else?) for the coming season and a few to buy if you missed the chance last season:

Only 8 Pairs of Shoes?

Actress (or actor?) Emma Watson revealed that she only has eight pairs of shoes.  I don’t believe her at all, I don’t know ANY woman in my entire extended circle of friends and family even ten times removed who only have eight pairs of shoes.

Her statement led to the inevitable glut of fashion editors declaring the only eight pairs of shoes that any woman may ever need.  Some of the lists include Geography teacher (aka Jesus) leather sandals and trainers.  I own neither.

Step-Sister’s Shoes

They probably wouldn’t see the positive side but it’s just as well that the ugly step-sisters never made it into Cinderella’s shoes.  We all sort of know ill fitting shoes can be bad for us.  Not only giving us cuts and blisters on our feel but bad shoes can give us back pain and hip problems too.  I think this is especially the case in Delhi.

Step Up

Like 2 billion people around the world, I watched the Royal Wedding yesterday, elegant bride, beautiful dress yada yada, great event and so on.  The person I was most impressed with was the Queen in her high heels.

How impressive is it that the Queen is in her eighties and still rocks heels?

Lelli Kelly’s All Made Up

Has anyone seen the recent Lelli Kelly adverts for girls shoes on television? My three year old watches Milkshake on Channel 5 in the mornings and I cannot believe that they are advertising make-up for girls with these shoes.
