When you're a woman of a "certain age " buying shoes is a big problem, especially if you want something that has a certain style....a bit of pizzaz ! you know what I mean....

I usually end up with a very matronly looking health shoe, bought from the local pharmacy, or a pair of slides that get worn to death simply because they are just so easy to slip into...... but yesterday as I was wandering thru one of our many arcades, tired and footsore, I happened upon a little shop that seemed to be selling a bit of everything , and these shoes caught my eye.

They look about my size, I thought, then dismissed the idea.......

Could do a lot for the "basic black" if they fitted, I told myself.

No - they'd never fit my once slim foot, now a bit puffy and large around the ankle, the rather large bunion adding to the problem. (Age has SO much to answer for)

but I found my hand reaching out for them and before you could say "hey ho silver" they were on....and they were mine !! MANOLO BLAHNIK, EAT YOUR HEART OUT.

They fit ! They are comfortable ! They have HEELS ! - 3cms high, (that's one inch in the old money) so I feel just so much taller,
and elegant.

Can't wait to wear them at my grand daughter's christening,
I'm sure she'll think I'm just so chic !
