There are a number of theories floating about, based on New Age philosophies and quantum physics, that describe the Law of Attraction and the various synchronicities the occur in life...if you're looking for them ;). Fashion is not exempt from these magical moments, either! After receiving an invite to a wedding some years ago, I planned an outfit with a blue dress and bright green sandals. I had the dress already, bought on sale in anticipation of such an occasion. But the sandals? They presented a massive headache. I searched high, low and in between, on land, in the Cloud, you name it. There simply were no bright green sandals with the necessary formality to be found ANYwhere. As the date of the wedding drew near, I had pretty much given up on finding them and begun to mentally try out other options. I was disappointed though; no other choice had quite the effect I was envisioning. I was with a group of friends out for a day of R & R when one of them unexpectedly announced that she was stopping at the local outlet mall. As we pulled into the parking lot, I had this sudden feeling that I ought to go into Off 5th. You know how, in the The Half-Blood Prince, when Harry drinks the Felix Felicis and just *knows* it would be a good idea to go to Hagrid's that night? It was basically that moment. I told my friends "I'm going to Off 5th" and for some reason added "My shoes are going to be there". And... they were. After all my searching, there, in the second aisle I went down, was the most perfect pair of green satin sandals. They even had an ankle strap, for easy walking and dancing. And - the coup de grace of the miracle - they were in my size! I learned some important life lessons from shoes that day. (To think, there are people who believe fashion is just superficial! ;)). PS Yes, I still have those magical shoes to remind me to always have a back-up plan, but never give up on what you really want and always stay aware of opportunities that arrive, no matter how out of the blue; they are how the Universe grants wishes.
