Viv2 Despite it being mid-August, I do live in England and although at the moment it's all about having a fan blowing on me as I type and wearing flip flops to the supermarket, I know it isn't to last. I think this is perhaps why I have turned my attention to court shoes, as the idea of wearing my sandals or flip flops as it rains down on fair Britain leaves me feeling a bit ill. I know my summer babies must be packed away until 2006, which leaves an opening in my wardrobe. Courts are a great winter shoe, and this court in particular has court - ha ha - my eye. It's from Boccaccini and isn't cheap at £149, but it should keep my tootsies warm throughout the long British winter, as well as being lovely to look at. Bonus. [Toni Stokes]
