When our very own blogger and Fashion Editor-at-Large Melanie Rickey strutted into the Grazia offices this morning declaring; 'these are the best shoes on the high street now!', every head in the room bobbed up over their computer screens.
And what they saw was La Rickey rocking a beautiful pair of geranium red suede wedges - from River Island, no less. Which is quite a thing, because as Mel herself says; 'I don't normally buy or wear high street shoes, but I walked into River Island this weekend, when I was out shopping with friends and these shoes just jumped out at me from the display. I've never fallen in love with a pair of shoes so quickly.'
So what's so great about them? 'they're the colour of the season, and they're just timelessly stylish - they're like something Ferragamo would have designed in the Fifties.'
And all for only £44.95...
