There's no place like home, there's no place like home...

The other day I was out keeping a friend company while she did some shopping, during which I may or may not have accidentally bought some stuff on sale at Max. Anyways, she popped into a shoe store to have a look and while she was trying on some very spangley and gorgeous heels I spotted a pair of red wedges across the way. We contemplated each other for a moment and then the shoes said "Hi!" I pretended I hadn't heard, but couldn't resist looking over again and they just sat there looking inviting. I thought it would be rude not to at least have a look so I did and they were very lovely and I was told they were "very you". But then I said goodbye and we left. But like any good missed opportunity, I couldn't stop thinking about them and so I popped down from Uni to the shop in Queen St. yesterday and there they were - on sale. Life is good sometimes!

Red shoes

When I tried them on I couldn't resist clicking my heels and trying to get home. I don't think the sweet young thing who was helping me had the slightest idea what I was going on about. Mat says that I'm showing my age by quoting Wizard of Oz but surely not?

They are lovely and comfortable, although the laces dig in a bit across the top of my foot. I'm thinking I might put in some ribbons instead.


  1. Jacqui these are GORGEOUS! And would look even more gorgeous (if that's possible) with ribbons for laces... what a find, score! hehe

    Oh Dorothy they are super cuteness!
    I'm actually very surprised that you managed to leave them in the shop the first time. These look like the sort of really cute, but actually practical shoes one rarely finds. And red.
    I think it's lack of common knowledge to not know about Wizard of Oz, rather than you showing your age. Hmmm, must get it for my kids - are sure they would love it {has a good bit of girly-ness and boy-fun, I do think}.
    Click click...

  3. Ribbons would be lovely, and no, you're not showing your age when acting out the Wizard of Oz. My 16-year can repeat every line from that movie!

  4. Oh they are gorgeous! I love them.

  5. Yum - definitely post a pic with ribbons please!!!!

    And you're not showing your age darling, just your good taste!

  6. oohhh! these are magnificent! i love the red... so vibrant! and wedges are my fav! :)

  7. oh love! you just can't have too many pairs of red shoes.... but those are STUNNING!!

  8. Oh...Im in love with these shoes.

  9. Yes, the whole ribbon idea is growing on me and not just because they'd be
    more comfortable!

  10. That's reassuring - nice to know it wasn't me but the shop assistant :)

  11. Definitely - as soon as I figure out which colour. :)

  12. Yes, I'm working on my red shoe collection! I must admit I think they're
    rather stunning too and will be looking for excuses to wear them any chance
    I get!
