Well peeps, I've said adieu to my dream.
I'd been wanting these Carvela berry beauties for so long. They were my dream shoes.
But though I adored them, after trying on these comfy booted heels a couple of times, I accepted that I wouldn't get much use out of them. They're not the boots for the life I lead ... now.
They would have been perfect in my former life. Oh I can just picture them, accompanying smart skirted suits and classic dresses. They would be the dot over the i, as the Danes say.
These booties are just so simple, yet elegant. And so comfy.
Slide foot in ... and off you strut.
I loved the finish at the back, which made slipping on effortless.
But they had to go 😢, I just couldn't justify the expense given that as a pensioner, what there is of disposable income has to be spent wisely.
Of course, I had to have one last blast with them before they were sealed up ready for the return journey. I tried them with a couple of skirts, just giving them one last chance. But head ruled and my shoe dream was over and cosseted in tissue and cardboard they disappeared in a puff of Royal Mail smoke.
But no time for tears because Gabor Pollyanna fit my lifestyle and that's what I've kept.
They are a dream to wear. Just the right amount of heel that my instep needs. Great grip. And they are leather, so
I TP can keep them nicely polished.
Of course, getting to this purchase was arduous and I had to issue an apology along with the way ! I had to order 3 sizes, eventually ending a half size up from my regular size. But I got there through dogged determination and with the help of John Lewis's super free delivery and returns. Love that company.
So when it comes to these berry booties beauties, my message to self is clear ...
... don't dream, it's over.
Now, dear reader, it's over to you ...
Do you have any dream shoes in your sights right now?
And when it comes to buying footwear, is it your heart or your head that has the final decision?
A la perchoine.
