Shoe of the Week: Pretty in Purple

It’s dreary, dull and dark outside this morning, and we’re feeling a bit depressed.  So I thought it was time for something a bit more summery today; a happy shoe that will leave us looking forward to our long awaited and well deserved eventual holidays.

As soon I came across these rather delicious Gianfranco Ferre’ wedges, I imagined warm evenings, cold cocktails and the scent of the sea.  These are my happy shoes, for this week anyway.

The wedge is varnished wood, with a purple leather toe strap and purple cloth wrapping straps.  Heel height is a healthy 4.7 inches, with a 1 inch wedge.
