Killer Heels - When Good Fashion Goes So, So Bad

May 5, 2006 at 4:00 pm by Designer Ella

This is sort-of a reply to last week’s Carnivale, but although I’d love the exposure and hits, I didn’t feel right about participating, then, because I have an anti-answer.

When I wear a shoe and it wears me out, I discard it: I push it to the back of my closet, hoping for *a day when um, I won’t walk that much, yeah*.

But those days never seem to come.

Class to class (elevators!); sure, but it’s building to building. Then shopping. Or even errands. It always takes me some distance.

It’s like those expensive bags I buy, but never carry, because I’ll get flak for buying them. Oh, someday! I say I’m now keeping the python/red suede bag for Fall. I do looove the thing. (The python makes a butterfly pattern!) And the Dior saddle pouch—well, my mom might know it’s Dior. Sure, I’ll say it was a bargain on sale (but it’s relative). I’m just not sure.

It’s not pain, I’m a pansy about pain. It’s money. I have no concept of it. And it’s bags. The bags are killing me, and I’m begging them to let me.

Laundry by Shelli Segal Short-Sleeved Jacket

May 5, 2006 at 12:00 pm by Mallory Road

Metallic Linen Jacket
I’m guest posting again, away from my usual spot over at Pursed Lips, and today I found a jacket that is almost limitless in what you can wear it with, and if I’m spending $225 on a piece of clothing, I want to be able to wear it a lot. There’s been an abundance of short-sleeve jackets this spring, which I love because I think a great jacket can pull an entire outfit together, plus so many of the short-sleeve ones are really cute!

This particular Metallic Linen Jacket by Shelli Segal is made from metallic-coated linen, has a button-and-loop closure, notched collar and slightly puffed sleeves. Plus, it’s not as cropped as so many jackets have been this spring, which means it won’t be so trendy and you’ll be able to wear it longer.
