Mary Jane shoes are back and big time this season.
They are no longer for dear little old ladies and adorable children.
I have always loved the Mary Jane style and insisted on dressing my daughters in a pair when they were little. All they probably wanted was a pair of colourful sneakers but me being me, did find a time and a place for the Mary Jane shoes. I think I still have their first pairs packed away somewhere; mothers and their memories.
This autumn and winter, Mary Jane shoes are featuring in every colour and every texture. They are plain and embellished; they are flat, with thin heels or stacked. The toes are round or pointed; take your pick.
The only sure thing in the shoe department is the strap across the ankle.
I have just taken an extravagant leap and found myself a pair of beautiful Mary Jane shoes.
Sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants and in my case it invariably revolves around footwear.
Nothing has ever changed with me.
I will wear the same dress repeatedly, the same jacket year in and year out but shoes, shoes are my very weakness.
And did I mention?
The strap makes all the difference to shoe comfort, especially when wearing a Mary Jane with a heel. It has something to do with the support across the foot. There is an excuse if ever you heard one. *wink*
I must confess, the Mary Jane has got me. xv
