The perfect red

I apparently have a lot of preconceived notions about designers. Just like my hesitance on anything Zanotti, I tend to think of Ferragamo as "stodgy" (outside of the Varina flats -- which are timeless classics).

Seriously - I see tons of Ferragamo at the thrifts, and they always feel so old lady to me. Square-toe, sensible heel, nice traction. Ugh. I know, some day when I'm bunioned to the hilt and chilling in Earth shoes while I chastise my daughter for wearing heels I'll regret those thoughts... but I'm living in the now.

I picked up these lovelies on super clearance at the local Saks years ago, when they had this "Champagne and Shoes" event (really! that's what it was called). I may have had two glasses of champagne, but this purchase was a sober one (maybe). I clicked my heels and then brought these ruby slippers right on home.

Fit on these is true-to-size, which I tend to be in most Ferragamos (7B), though I have narrow feet. The comfort is amazing and they are definitely a go-to pair of heels (only about 3.5" tall) when I know I'll be walking a bit.

The socks were just something silly I added to my cart when I was buying stockings a bit ago. I couldn't resist.

Post Script: This shoe fetishist uses a cheap $100 digicam to take pictures with (and sometimes a tripod), but is debating getting a nicer camera for her birthday instead of shoes. I am thinking a refurbed Nikon, but welcome other suggestions.
