Pleasure & Pain


If you like high heels then strut on down to the Victoria & Albert Museum to see their exhibition Shoes Pleasure & Pain [which is on view now until January 31]. This exhibit parades you through the history, the pleasures and the pains of wearing high heels. See heels from ancient Egypt, Cinderella’s Glass Slipper and stilettos made from a 3D printer. If you visit be sure to take a #Shoefie!
