Cherry Picking






























































































This is what one would call a fashion "sub-category." Let me explain: Yes, it's present, but soon it will be absent so unless someone plans to buy you the Dior diamond and coral cherry earrings, go easy allocating your accessory budget on this minor movement.

Although the Stella McCartney sandals are kind of yummy, particularly when the nail polish is color-coordinated to repeat the fruit hue, they take a big bite out of the budget. Come to think of it, it might be a wiser investment to wear your old sandals and paint your toenails cherry red. 

Whether sub or staggeringly important I feel it is my duty to stay on top of the latest and the greatest, no matter how fleeting. I think you know my position on fads -- go lightly unless you have a solid trust fund or you're in the fashion business and the designers are sending them to you gratis. (Yes, that is the way of the fun-filled world of fashion -- at least for the magazines. Some newspapers forbid graft. I mean gifts. . .)

(An aside, as usual I digress: We have three cherry trees and off of every branch hang pits on stems. We've been told to put nets over them, that didn't work; hang CDs on the branches, waaaay too much work; and finally to nestle radios(?) in the bows. For all I know birds like music and furthermore who owns three radios? Bottom line: I had to buy cherries at the market.)

From the top: aforementioned Dior earrings -- and good luck to you; a dirt cheap belt buckle; cuff and sandals from Stella McCartney; Liberty print watch from Cacharel; and Revlon's famous "Cherries In The Snow."

Your writing wit makes my day. Cherries are a big part of local lore. We have the so called Cherry Capital (the tart, cooking kind) up in Door County, flyover land's answer to New England. The Door peninsula is small, quaint and filled w/summer homes. With patience, one could find among the shops inexpensive cherry chotchke's. No Dior earrings, but I'll bet some enterprising Door teen or adult has already lopped some plastic cherries onto her flip flops.

P.S. I think some plastic, or whatever, cherries placed on a pair of strappy sandals, plus that luscious Cherries in the Snow could be great fun for an outdoor summer party!
