Take Note | International Red Shoe Day

The 25th of July has been pledged as 'International Red Shoe' day - A day of Remembrance, for those lost to Invisible Illnesses. Not only are lives (like mine) put on hold, but other's are lost entirely, to underfunded, underrecognised conditions, that people all around the world put up with, invisibly. Today we remove that invisibilty cloak, with shoes. Symbolic, Supportive shoes, to share awareness, and celebrate the lives of those lost.

The Dream v The Reality

You May think, silly? Insignificant? But, I believe in butterflies wings. It's a simple way, for even the most unable, to pledge some support to this cause. I was due to do to honour it in an OOTD post (ft these thrifted beauties), from a 21st do tonight, but ironically I'm not well enough. So PJS it is; but I have swapped my summer slippers for said colour sandals, even if I only stood up in them to take a few photos.
& I urge you, to get you Dorothy on too - are you a stiletto or shoe?

Shoes to strut/sit in, and a smile that says someday things will change






To Quote cover poem
..For all those still suffering, and all who are gone,
This army of red shoes will keep marching on
And maybe someday we will see on the news
That the whole world now knows why, we wear our red shoes.
