A few days ago M and I went to see Fast & Furious 7. I had on a really cute outfit and I went all matchy-matchy. (My shoes were coordinated with the details on my satchel bag, and went well with my wool blazer, my dress matched the main color of the bag, my tights were black as was my cardigan and my pashmina scarf. It was all good.) As we were headed for the garage to get our car and go to the cinema, I heard this noise (like if my shoe was stuck on something and then popped away) but I didn’t notice anything and we went to the cinema. When we got there and on the way to get our tickets, the same thing happened with the other shoe. This time I paid more attention and then I realized that my sole (actually both of the soles) had become unattached from the shoe! Bloody hell! Literally one of my worst nightmares!! Both of my shoes were hanging on only at the toe part of the shoe! It was very difficult to walk (as I was worried the whole thing would come off and I’d trip and die.) We had a little over 15 minutes before the movie was supposed to begin so M went to get tickets and I went to Aldo to buy some shoes. I ended up buying the shoes pictured in the photo below (I didn’t manage to get outfit photos before.)
These were the shoes that I had had on: Asos Amplify ankle wedges with a peep toe.
This was the previous time I had worn the shoes, which was quite a long time ago (November 2013). I guess I can get them fixed (I could probably even do it myself with loads of super glue but I’m not sure I could ever trust them completely!)
Luckily there is a happy end to this story, in the form of some new shoes! As I mentioned above, I went to Aldo (actually first M and I stopped by Reserved but I didn’t see anything I liked so we split up, he went for the tickets and I went to Aldo) and I went to their sales section, as I didn’t want to spend loads. I first tried on a pair of black leather look wedges but they were a bit uncomfortable and I don’t like the idea of buying shoes I know I’ll never wear. Then I tried on a pair of flat calf-length tan boots but they just weren’t right (keep in mind I had only 15 minutes to find a new pair). Finally I tried on these Trerasa ankle boots with an open heel detail. They’re not shoes I would typically go for but I quite liked them, they fit okay (a little big though) and so these were the winners.
I’m really happy with them, I think the shape is quite interesting and I like the buckles too. Plus I like a pointed toe shoe and I feel they are a good addition to my shoe collection. All’s well that ends well.
