PS... more good shoes
Just been emailed a picture of these shoes by my friend Julietta, who is going to wear them for her 40th birthday party. They're by Rupert Sanderson, and I feel they should be shared. They seem to me to be an intriguing mix of Miss Jean Brodie, Mayfair dominatrix, and the first Mrs de Winter.
As you may have noticed, my shoe obsession is mounting, as my book deadline nears. Doubtless Herr Doktor Freud would have something to say on the subject of heightening anxiety and precipitous heels. Or maybe that's a scene from an unmade Hitchcock movie? (Almost certainly based on a Du Maurier story...)
Actually, Freud was quite interested in buttons; undone, of course...
