Lusting Over Shoes aye? How shallow of ye...

I. WANT. A. PAIR. Figure I should say that now before I get caught up in a fantasy story including me and these babies. Knowing me, that is very possible.
I don't think my obsession for shoes is something that has been translated unto this blog; Well, like every other   girl in the entire universe, I love shoes. So much. Okay. I have quite a fair amount of shoes, some impulse, others coveted for years, then purchased with my hard earned wages (or stolen off my mother). The best part about being obsessed with shoes is having a mother who can fuel your obsession for cheap; since she's waaaayy more obsessed than me, and has over a hundred pairs that I so happen to 'help' her wear on occasion. 
Amazing that the Fates made us the same size!

See. I told you I would begin storytelling! Sorry! Okay... Back to the Campbells...

If you pay attention much to the goings - on in blogosphere, the words Jeffery Campbell should not be news to you; all the Rumis of the blogging world have at least 73.2 pairs. And originally, I could not stand the booties. Too hefty at the top, and wayyyy too high for my 5'10/5'11 frame.The Jeffery Campbell 'Lita' is what I think they're called? More drawn towards these Acne booties, I am. *I'm stillll coveting a pair of those, mind* 
Ohh, I know... Sooo last season. Still want a pair though!

These Campbells in question are reminiscent of the vintage Salvatore Ferragamo platforms that I am totally in love with. 
If only shoes were men. Gaaah!
Sooooo! It's only appropriate that the Campbells be known as 'Salvatore', 'cos, I mean. They look dashingly alike, no? 

vintage Salvatore Ferragamo  platform wedges

JC, I aint mad atchuuu... Just send me one in my size. Sure, I may not be able to walk normally in them, BUT I WILL DO MY BEST TO. Even wear it to bed. Indeed.

This is what happens when you let an angry shoe lust-er know about vintage shoes that suddenly exist again. 

Did I mention I was a UK size 7? We..ell.. 6.5 really, but I don't think they do halves. So. 7. Kind souls out there? I'm sure there are,  right?
