There's nothing like a new pair of shoes to embrace the new season, and Zara have the perfect pair. So perfect in fact, that they sold out. Twice.
The pair of velvet slippers (perfect for this trans-seasonal weather) sold out once, then came back in stock on Monday before promptly selling out again.
It's easy to see why. The mules are far chicer than their £29.99 price tag suggests, thanks to the rich jet black velvet, embroidered with sitting leopards.
They will look great paired with a mohair jumper, jeans and a camel coat, or even with a black tuxedo for a fancier evening look.
And if you missed out on them, fear not. They are coming back in stock, and you can sign up next to your size to be alerted as soon as they come back online.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.
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 MoneySavingExpert.com, 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.
