Spotted on the street
I spotted Katie from work in these lovely shoes purchased in a Clark's sale. Katie said this is the one pair of shoes out of all her shoes, that people comment on the most despite having more expensive shoes in her collection.
On a current shopping trip with her young daughter, her love of shoes was brought into question when filling her shopping basket with more than a few pairs at Marks and Spencers, Katie was asked if she really needed that many shoes. . . . Well the current range at M and S are both tempting and good value for money, what's a girl supposed to do?
I'm sure that there is plenty of time of Katie's daughter to learn that less is definitely not more when buying shoes, although I do hear that's she's developing a fine appreciation of handbags and shoes herself..
We discussed our mutual love of shoes when Katie mentioned a Spice-Girl influenced outfit back in the nineties (admit it, the Spice Girls were very influential during that era and I hold my hand up to have a Geri-inspired haircut) when her mum treated her to some leopard print trousers and shoes. The shoes were too small but she loved them that much (still has them today) that she gritted her teeth and danced painfully to Two becomes One. Now that truly is Girl Power!
