celebrating red shoes (the angels wanna wear my)
I have to buy shoes online (narrow feet), so to avoid the hassle of returning the ones that don’t fit, I’ve settled on a couple tried-and-true brands. Back in the day, I had a pair of Enzo Angiolini Liberty flats in two-toned purple that I loved, as much as one can love a shoe, and finally wore out.
This style still comes in an amazing variety of colors—and in my size—but, alas, no more purple.
However, they do have this fantastic chili pepper red. As soon as I saw them, I had to admit that I really, really wanted a pair of red shoes. But red shoes seemed like an indulgence. They were definitely something I could do without, so I kept doing without them.
This spring, when I found them at half price, I went for it and indulged my desire for red shoes. They have turned out to be a celebration not only when I wear them but whenever I see them in my closet.
I used to be disgusted, and now I try to be amused.
The red shoes definitely help!
Is there something, shoe or other-wise, that you’re happy you indulged in—or that you want to?
