And then one day you wake up in red shoes.
I’m not one for pops of color, and had resolutely avoided ballet flats for this entire trend lifecycle. But then I went shopping at Modern Appealing Clothing, a local boutique owned by a brother and sister with exquisite Urban Artsy taste. The next thing I knew I had acquired this pair of orange-red Sofie D’Hoore ballet flats.
Sofie’s Belgian, and the flats are just this side of ugly, in that fashiony kind of way. I found my Ferragamos felt too demure with the dress, and who among us craves nothing wild? Or at the very least, subversive.
That said, I’m going to say dresses made me do it, and I cannot guarantee what happens next. Most people put on their red shoes and continue about their business.
