Would you believe me if I told you I’ve been searching for this exact pair of shoes for almost a year? As with many instances of love at first sight, we met at a party.
A friend of a friend of a friend (you know?) was wearing them with jeans and a black blouse. I was floored by how a pair of shoes could turn a simple outfit into something so fantastic. I worked up the courage to ask where they were from.
“Oh, New Look,” she said. “They’re from the UK, and quite cheap too!” Needless to say, after the party I rushed home to view New Look’s website, credit card in hand.
They weren’t there. Heart. broken.
Eleven months later, while visiting the Swedish auction site seconds.se, I came across them – my size, my color, my shoes. Oh fate – you wild thing you!
So now we’re happily together, me and my red shoes. They took their first spin out on the town this weekend in Aarhus to celebrate my host mother’s birthday, and they couldn’t have been more well behaved. They are comfortable to walk in, don’t rub my feet the wrong way, or pinch my toes.
They. are. perfect.
