When people ask me how many children I have, my response is simply this:
“I have two children, aged 4 years, names Jimmy and Choo”
Most people think I am joking when I say this, but I am afraid that I am being deadly serious. My Jimmy Choo’s are my babies, and I love them very very much. A few weeks ago, as I was packing for a business trip to London, the box fell out from under my bed. I took this as a sign that they knew I was going to be away for a few days, so I opened the box and explained that mummy would not be gone for long. Yes I know that a lot of men will be reading this and thinking that I am completely insane, but I, like most women, have a relationship with shoes, that men will never understand. They are within easy reach, so if an emergency arises and I have to vacate my premises immediately, I can grab them on my way out.
Also, these particular shoes hold special significance for me, because I bought them after winning one of my first TV contracts. When I received confirmation from the show’s producer that I was going to appear on the show as one of their team of stylists, I decided to treat myself to these as a ‘well done’ gift. Obviously I have had them soled, so they are protected, and they never come out of the box, unless it is a very special occasion. Although they are four years old (we will be celebrating our fifth anniversary in October), they still look fabulous. Furthermore, because I am not very tall, they give me height and for the few hours that I wear them on a night out, I feel like a human sky scraper. I walk more confidently and feel a good deal sexier in them. They go with practically everything in my wardrobe, and most importantly, they never fail to make me smile.
As Marilyn Monroe once said:
‘I don’t know who invented in the high heel but all women owe him a lot’
I couldn’t agree more. If high heels had never been invented, then I wouldn’t have my babies.
I not only love shoes…I love Choos.
