Remember when I was talking about those things I look for on Monday mornings? I omitted one very important quest and that is for the holy grail of footwear. I don’t need to have it, or even need to feel like I want to have it, I just need it to evoke emotion, any sense of feeling, and when I saw the velvet nude Dolce and Gabbana d’Orsay pumps as photographed quietly loitering the sale section of Barneys.com yesterday, I thought to myself not, wow, what beautiful architecture! That lush velvet! That inconspicuous but highly telling backside ruby! No.
I thought, self, how can I make spending $600 I certainly don’t need to and furthermore should definitely not spend worth it?
I never found an appropriate answer or solution but, really, what is wrong with me? This shoe thing is getting a little out of hand.
Granted, they’re the most impeccable pair of pumps on the face of this earth, and when held up against their almost identical-but-not-quite twin, quite a steal, but I just blew my load on Céline. I shouldn’t even care that there are shoes existing in a cosmos not my own. Then again, though, of course, this is a collective. A place for us to come and love and share and care so this one is actually to inspire you, Mrs. Robinson. To play that fun mental game of dress up where the world is your closet and styling is your oyster. How would you pair them? What with? Ankle straps yay or nay?
No need to purchase, just look, smile, inspire, bla bla bla.
