Bless You, Mr. Choo!

Well, it sure is a cause for celebration. Good shoes always are. They were expensive with a capital E. Not the stuff a broke writer goes for. But indulgence is the spice of life. Besides, I fell in love with them the moment I saw them. And what I love more is the fact that an identical pair of shoes, in green, is featured in this month's Vogue. I am just looking for the perfect occasion to wear these. I tried them at the shop and they were superbly comfortable. I think the trip to Goa will be it. These would be perfect with a dress I covet. More on that later. For now, I have to keep these away from Mr. Scrabble, or as hubby puts it, they will be known as "Scrabble Chewed". The very thought gives me shudders.



In retrospective, it's only fair that my biggest indulgence so far has been a pair of shoes. Having been born and brought up in Agra, there were shoes aplenty while I was growing up. Dad would get me these lovely ankle-length boots and leather pumps. There was a brief, forgettable affair with uggs, though Marie Janes remained good friends. The only problem was color. You could have any shoe as long as it was black. You can see how that posed a problem. Suede too was not my scene, as I wasn't particularly careful with my shoes. But that was then, and this is now. What a lovely red!



Oh, and did you know that Jimmy Choo made his first shoe when he was barely 11 years old! Now there is a guy who knows his heels. So many women love him. Bless you, Mr. Choo!

those shoes are very very delicious!

And I'll get on with the tag soon :)

Prakash and Linda Mugdur said...

Absolutely, stunning! Even in my favorite color! Red! Oh, wow! Really awesome that you splurged on yourself!

Laurel said...

Oh my god, P - those are so hot.

That red is so beautiful, I can’t get enough of the super chunky (but gorgeously sexy) heel! Nice choice, my love.

Two days, baby! Can you believe it? So many mixed emotions right now, it’s really hard to describe – but I know for sure it’s exciting on so many levels. Hope you’re well, my love!

Bombchell said...

hmm Ive never bought expensive shoes. I feel horrible even when someone offers to buy me $300 as a gift.

but i dont feel bad if its clothes, hair or cosmetics. lol I guess we all have our vices. they're cute.

Pratishtha Durga said...

yigin: I couldn't agree more on this one! Shoes really do make all the difference to an outfit.

Vini: Thanks. Oh, speaking of green, see the ones in Vogue's current issue. Oh, they are lovely too!

Pratishtha Durga said...

Freelancer: I am really looking forward to your Tag entry. And hope you did well on your break.

Linda: Yay! Red always gets me drooling. Oh well, so does black, but there is only so much of it you can have in a closet.

Pratishtha Durga said...

Laurel! Honey, I wouldn't be able to sleep if i were you. but I am hoping that everything will be great and that this will be the opportunity that will turn your life around, for good. Best of luck, love!

Bombchell...gee... you are making me feel guilty. Well, almost. the shoes were expensive, But OHHH I Heart Them. I do, I do!

Bombchell said...

lol girl dont feel bad. if u add money i spend on hair, clubbing, nals etc its shameful because I have nothing to show for it in a few weeks.

then again if i had more I know I'll go all Beyonce and even buy a $500- 1000 lace wig. ha ha

Ashleigh said...

a hot red shoe always comes in handy! ...or footy I guess.

Marie Louise said...

Wow! Don't those shoes make a statement. They're gorgeous. You'll just shut everyone up in the room with them. I'm sure they will be so worth it!

bollywoodblogger said...

I love it! The shoes and the picture of Scrabble too. I have two dogs and though I'd be mad if they got at my shoes, I can't remain mad at them for too long ;)

Pratishtha Durga said...

Ashleigh - Oh, this Wednesday would be it, I think!

Indianrose - Fashion porn, in the same league as the Birkin stars... you are so right, pal... lust away!!!

Maegan- Red shoes, black shoes, yellow shoes, blue shoes... i love them all!

Pratishtha Durga said...

Bollywoodblogger - oh Scrabble has been at some 16-20 pairs of shoes already. I love dogs, but there will be reckoning for these.

Marie Louise - They do make a statement. And are quite set of head-turners. I can't wait to get myself more.
