A GIRL CAN DREAM.....
....At Selfridges Shoe Carnival
Following a little bout of networking on Twitter last week, I came across a tweet by Selfridges promoting an event in their store called the ‘Shoe Carnival’, which runs from 01 March -21 April. Well everything about this tweet grabbed my attention. Firstly, the fact that Selfridges - whom I have a new found respect for after indulging in the hit show Mr Selfridge - were hosting a free event; secondly, that the purpose of the event was to celebrate our love of shoes yeaah, and thirdly, the word ‘carnival’ conjured up thoughts of fun fun fun! For me this was tick tick tick!
So I took myself off to Selfridges Birmingham (unfortunately their shoe department is not as imposing as Selfridges London, but it does the job nonetheless and I'm just grateful we have one!) last week and as I stepped off the escalator I was immediately greeted by a show stopping performance by Cirque Du Soir, treats tricycles offering candy floss and smoothies, Miss Ballooniverse making miniature balloon sculptures and a live DJ, all against a backdrop of beautiful shoes!
Why is it that we gals drool over and lust after expensive designer shoes, when a high street shoe at a tenth of the price can feel and look just as good?
Who is your favourite shoe designer? I know it’s cliché, but I have to go with the signature shoe that is….. the Louboutin, and when I'm not dreaming, any shoe by Kurt Geiger appeals!
