I had a neurology appointment over the bridge and took the opportunity afterwards to stop at the mall to look for socks. Simple pink socks. You would have thought I'd asked for socks with three toes in stripes of purple, orange, and chartreuse with a bit of lace and oh yeah, a pom pom thrown in, because there were NO pink socks to be had.
But Betsey Johnson had a sale on thigh-high funktastic flower-and-stripe socks.
Never one to pass up the shoe department, I took a quick look, and like a beacon from above, my eyes were drawn to the latest Limited Edition Danskos.
Blue Patent Python (of the not-real-python variety). I fell in love. Not because they look like a snake, but because they glow almost purple in places when the light hits them, and because they are just so..... funky. And I do love funky shoes. These are a this-year-only edition, and are available in pale yellow and light green.
Then I had to get a pair I've been longing for for ages. I always said, "No, not now," because I wear a lot of blue, pink, and purple, and thus had nothing to wear with ....
claret red patent leather. But I do have one red sweater, and have plans for more red, and hey -- who says I have to wear black shoes with black outfits? Live a little.
Yes, happiness has many forms. Today, its form was shoes.
