I'm off again with a doesn't go together; has-nothing-to-do-with-one-another; may-or-may-not- be-hot, hot, hot, but I like these things anyway post.
Inevitably as I find one-offs and something that strikes my fancy I set each idea or item aside to be thrown into these -- now weekly it seems -- jumbles of this and that. So here we go:
The glass grape bracelet and earrings are a definite "just because." I think they're pretty, probably conversation worthy and fruity motifs are in, in general this summer. I thought these would be different -- and by extension make us appear clever and more creative than those merely buying into a produce trend -- also, I envision them as the ultimate vintage pieces. There's also a necklace (!)
You may recall I dissed silver nail polish a few posts back. That was before I saw beautifully pedicured, silver-toed tootsies in silver sandals. I'm holding fast to my position on fingernails, but there was something festive and "risky" fun about the toes. Sandals from the top: Bernardo, J.Crew and Christian Louboutin. If, and believe me I understand, you're aiming for "ever-elegant and irreproachable" go for Chanel's Dragon.
This is not an endorsement, it's more like a "slipped through the net" when doing my bug post last week. Note spider plus her web on the Alian Milki/Delfina Deletrettrez sunglasses. They were supposed to be part of the insect round up, but somehow escaped. I couldn't bear the idea that you would be deprived of such a creative use of a creepy, crawly.
In passing. . . I found a long leopard cardigan a few weeks ago which I decided I really, really liked, as in the sense: "That would certainly look nice on someone, though not me." (I try not to be selfish.) As a consequence it went into my "this and that" folder. I've now decided I hate it so as you can see it's not here. I believe that is how we make terrible mistakes when we shop and buy things on impulse. I do not know one French woman, I swear this is true, who has had a bad impulse purchase.
