The pair of Patrick Cox arrived in the mail two days ago. Secondhand from Ebay.
I'm still on a shopping ban but they were dirt-cheap and they don't make them no more. I couldn't get that rich tan, those comfy chunky heels and square toes out of my head after the auction ended with no buyer. So much so that I wrote to the seller to ask if she could re-list it as a Buy-It-Now item for me.
Now, I just need to pay a visit to my fantastic leather man. The shoes are in my usual Patrick Cox size on paper (what luck, right?!) but they are a size too big in real life. The thick socks didn't help. I think we need to add some dainty ankle straps to hold my feet in. Hopefully, Mr Cox will approve.
The bag was an op shop find nearly a month ago. I haven't bought a pleather bag since I "grew up" and could afford the real deal. Unless they are really cool and not available in leather.
I loved the shape of this one, so tall and slim and boxy. And well-constructed. Still in very good shape despite its age. For $3, the other tan bags at home got themselves a new pal.
