So it’s a special day today – I’m wearing my new Golden Goose sneakers. For many of you, when you see the price, you will think I have gone absolutely stark raving bonkers, you might even consider it irresponsible to spend so much on a pair of sneakers. But before you start tssking let me just say this – I am fortunate that my work/life situation means I don’t need to wear suits anymore. When I was in the corporate world I would have to buy suits and then clothes for outside of work. Now I can wear all my clothes for any occasion – nothing is deemed inappropriate in our office – anything goes basically, as long as you can handle the ridicule that may ensue if you take it to the ridiculous. So I feel am able to justify spending a little more on items that I know I can wear everyday and anywhere. These fabulous sparkly shoes will be worn for work and play – with jeans, dresses and shorts – I am actually struggling to think of an item in my closet that I can’t wear them with. In addition to this they bring me pure simple joy. Justification done.
These glitter Golden Goose were bought from Barney‘s and they have some sizes left. I went for a Eur 39 and they fit perfectly – I’m normally a US 8-8.5 so ignore the fact that all the GG size charts claim that a Eur 39 is a US 9. One of my favorite retailers, James Perse (best known for their fabulous tees and cotton clothes), has also started selling Golden Goose and they have just received a shipment of the new SS 2013 collection. I personally LOVE the Francy in peach – gorgeous with sun kissed legs and shorts.
The Husband muttered something about refereeing as I walked in the office, I ignored him…
