I had met this woman, who is the owner of The Practice Loft yoga studio, at the Indie Media Fair at the Central Library in the spring, and it was so nice to see her again, and the fabulous bright green Mary Janes from Fly London she was wearing! I also noticed her unique jewellery, and the funky, flattering haircut she had acquired since I last saw her. Her son's bright blue sandals were handmade, and had tiny silver rockets on them. When I was his age, there was a choice of white or brown leather lace-up shoes, or for girls, patent Mary Janes. It's probably a good thing that there weren't more shoe choices when I was young, given my fondness for stylish footwear, I would have probably bankrupted my parents.
