Your purse is on fire!
'I don't have any shoes and I want to walk,' Greta Garbo told the Italian shoe designer, Salvatore Ferragamo in 1927, and believe me, I know how she felt. This week if I had two ha'pennies to rub together these fabulous Ferragamo wedges would be making their way to That's Not My Age mansions. The perfect shoe for a grown-up autumn (so long as it doesn't rain and public transport isn't an issue) has a low heel, is crafted from super-soft suede and comes in this truly magnificent colour. One of four different types of Garbo-style shoes in the Ferragamo A/W 2010 collection.
But how to wear an orange suede low-wedge? In true movie star fashion I'd team them with a pair of wide leg trousers and a silk blouse:
And when winter comes, I'll get out the suede protector and wear them with a Hollywood-style cashmere sweater and vintage Chanel scarf:
Now if you'll forgive me, I'd like to be left alone with my film star footwear.
