These Zara sandals sold out within days (but they're now back in stock)

While it may seem frivolous to talk about shopping in the mids of a Coronavirus pandemic, there is something reassuring about the normality of it.

And it certainly seems like shoppers are hopeful about being out and about when the warm weather hits, judging by these sandals which went online last week and promptly sold out.

My sources at Zara tell me they have had to restock now due to their popularity, and it's easy to see why.


The price point for leather sandals is excellent, and the pearl detail gives these slides an extra luxe feel.

Plus they look like a summer take on those pearl biker boots which sold out continuously for two years running.

While we wait for the situation to improve, they'll work very well as fancy indoor slippers too.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
