Chocolate Brown Marni Wedge Sandals

I purchased these delicious chocolate brown BNIB Marni wedge
sandals on ebay two summers ago. They were over 70% off!
They were an amazing deal.  They'll look great
with spring's neutrals, nudes, and camels.
I will have to sport some action shots soon.

The Tale of the Skirt, Part One

I remember seeing this skirt on Katie Holmes on the web one day, and I nearly fell off my chair!  I love the sculptural elements and the subtle couture quality of it.  To this day, I'm not sure who it was made by, but I have
a feeling it's Lanvin, Armani, or Fendi.  I could be totally wrong, though...  In any case, I surely wouldn't have been able to afford it.  So what's a girl like me to do?  I really really wanted the skirt, and after days of obsessing over it, I decided to take action.  I printed some pics and headed to a local dressmaker.  The shop was really small and, to be honest, I wasn't really keen on the gowns and frocks that occupied most of the tiny space.  I was greeted by a very quiet and pleasant woman.  Her name was Mi-Lyn, and I think I totally overwhelmed her with my pleading and all my questions.  "Do you think you can do it? Really? Can you make it look just as sculptural and tailored as in the picture? Oh please say yes!" 

My First Hermes Silk

It's been too long since my last post...
I've been way too busy to keep up, and besides, I don't think anyone
reads my blog anyway.  I just wanted to post that my dear boyfriend
bought me my first Hermes scarf.
It's a Brides de Gala, Dip Dye in aubergine.
It's quite possibly my most favorite accessory!
If you've read my previous posts, you might remember a pair of
Louboutin boots I received as a 25th birthday present from my boyfriend.
Sadly, I could not wear them because they were too high... and after some thought,
I realized how silly it was to have chosen a pair of shoes for such a special and rare gift.
I ended up selling them. This scarf is what I purchased as a replacement.
I think this was a good purchase because I can wear it until I'm old and grey, and I
can pass it on to my daughter.
Loubs are not something that can be worn by a 85 year old lady with a cane!
