The black Italian patent leather bag is one I picked up very reasonably at Winners year before last -- something else I should use more often.
Does anyone else get comments, when they wear pointed toes, about "winkle-pickers" or "shit-kickers"? Someone on my ferry the morning I wore these pretended to be afraid of "pissing me off" because of the risk I'd hurt him with the shoes' points. I, in turn, pretended to be astonished that he couldn't instantly see from my pink shoes how spring-sunshine-happy I was, how unlikely I was ever to be "pissed off" in these shoes. Inwardly, I admit, seething just a little -- do people actually think we find these assessments of our footwear witty? welcome?
So here's the rundown:
Pink Shirt, GAP (4 years old)
Pearls Pater brought me back from China years and years ago
Black 3/4-sleeve v-neck by Sonia Rykiel for H&M
Black skirt, More & More, bought 5 or 6 years ago at Simons in Montreal
pink Fluevog shoes, 6 or so years old.
black patent leather bag, Arcadia, bought Fall '08 at Winners
So only the v-neck was new, all the rest was wardrobe-shopped, which makes me happy.
Also making me happy? Some flights and hotels were booked over the weekend. I'll tell you more later -- stay tuned . . .
