Gold shoes for piano recital

Last weekend my daughter had a piano recital and I needed to get her some new shoes. I really did not have time to shop around and went to the closest shoe shop which turned out to be John Lewis. My daughter, who is only 4 by the way, picked out a pair of gold shoes from the children’s wedding shoes section and wouldn’t take them off after trying them on. I got her a pair of bridal socks to go with her shoes but she was not interested in wearing any socks just her gold shoes. She wore a floral print dress and her gold shoes and won best dress at the recital. It just reminded me how versatile metallic gold is and made me think that I simply must get myself some gold sandals this summer.

My daughter played "Buttercup and Diasies" and "London Bridge".  And for those of you wondering how a child can be playing the piano at such a young age then check out the Suzuki Method.  The suzuki method is a method of teaching music by numbers developed by Shinichi Suzuki.  Following are some books on the subject you may find useful.

You know how sometimes you are concerned that children would grow out of clothes and shoes without having worn them much?  Well rest assured these gold shoes are being worn everyday as she jumps into them the moment she gets home and it does not matter where we are going these days, she puts them on.   Apart from the fact that they are gold, my daughter says they look like ballet shoes which is even more appealing I think.
