I get it, finally
Shoe queen that I am, I never got it.
My favorite bloggers, have written about them. NYT cover girl Allie, of Summer is a Verb is hooked. Jeremy Hackett, Mr. Classic himself has expounded on the subject.
I am not against extravagance. I love extravagance. Extravagance makes the world a more civilized place, but really, Belgian Shoes make Tod's appear inexpensive.
So I bit. Why not a pair for my birthday, I reasoned. Several weeks later they arrived. Sheepishly, I eased into them, just around the manse for a while, was my mantra. My god, are these comfortable. I began to make up excuses to dress up during the day. Wanna go to lunch, love?
Fortunately, no one I'm likely to run into most days has a clue what they are. Like fine lingerie, my Belgian's are my hidden indulgence.
Since I've learned they can safely leave home, I've been shopping for my next, and next next pair.
Curse you Internet.
