A couple of warmer days and a shopping trip with a friend have brought into my life a new, glorious pair of robin’s egg blue, strappy, high-heeled sandals. They’re patent leather, so they’re shiny, and they have a bit of a platform heel made of a cork-like material that has silver sparklies in it. I will probably only be able to wear them for about 20 minutes at a time, but they are quite fun to look at!
The truth of the matter is that I love to look at shoes! Fortunately, I don’t have to buy them in order to do so… once again, the library saves me! Check out any one of these wonderful books for an inexpensive, pain-free way to enjoy the remarkable and fabulous world of footwear.
