the boring expenditure
Sometimes you have to buy things that don't excite you. Caught in the rain today and my favourite flats clammy and possibly on the verge of disintegrating if I wore them any longer, I spent a frentic 15 minutes looking for a replacement.
I was mildly tempted by a pair of beautiful two-toned flats (very light gold linen with a black leather toe cap, leathered lined) but I didn't have time to make a considered expensive purchase, or even get a sales assistant to find me my size. So instead I grabbed these at Topshop because I had S$20 in gift certificates I could use to offset the S$59 price tag.
(I also considered flip flops, but that wouldn't thrill my boss.)
They are cute and basic and quite like the Repettos that so disappointed me, but at a fraction of the cost. At least the leather lining was genuine, so my feet could breathe, but they're not the height of comfortable. They didn't thrill me, but they will last me (my experience with Topshop shoes says one year of daily wear max).
