Walking In Straw

Tory Burch

Long time planned, held in reserve, cancelled for Caillebotte and other passing fancies that took precedence last week: Walking In Straw.

Summer ballerines.

Sweet, not serious, pretty and perhaps, if we're lucky, about to be on markdown.

On another subject: Eye creams. I know you're concerned about the info from my dermatologist and her assistant. Neither uses them as you may recall. Their reason? "They're not necessary." Both say they take their night creams up and around their eyes, but not too close.

Remember: tap, tap, tap. . .
No one wants to wake in the morning looking worse than she did when she went to bed. Never put eye cream too close to the eye because it will melt and seep into the eyes which equals, puffy eyes. Not the look you were dreaming about.

If, however, and Dr. Gallais emphasized the point, a woman has found an eye cream she believes works for her, she should continue using it.

Love the idea of straw for summer. Cute finds.
I do use a moisturizer around the eye but I don't spend lots of money for it. Drug store brand of light moisture helps keep the skin from looking dry and crepe-like.
Happy Monday.

As a former cosmetic chemist, I agree with the eye cream info EXCEPT for Kiehl's Avocado EyeCream. It is the best and does not migrate. Use just a tiny tiny bit on the crease on your lids and around your eyes especially at night. Most eye creams are minimally or not fragranced whereas regular moisturizers may have more scent to them causing irritation. Try the Kiehl' is fabulous!

Those straw ballerines are adorable. I've never noticed that my wardrobe was missing a pair, and now it seems so obvious.

I haven't found an eye cream I've loved since L'Oreal discontinued my favorite about 10 years ago. Face cream seems to work as well as anything I've tried since then, so that's what I use.

Love the Tory Burch pair...I'm really into flats this many to choose from.
I agree with your dermamtologist many people say eye cream isn't necessary and they're so expensive...definitely a cream we can go without! :)

I love the Tory Burch straw flats....and the orange is yummy!

Eye cream has never been on my radar so it is comforting to hear that some experts do not suggest it's use.

Have fun on Wednesday at Eric Bompard!
Please show us what you buy!

These straw flats are lovely. (No straw heels in the offing?)

I'm still longing for a fedora after your recent post! (No time to go browsing to find a hat, and like so many women, when I buy hats, I'm then too embarrassed to actually wear them out!)

Those Zara pumps are very cute - and your dermatologist is very wise. I never use eye cream.

I'd love to read a post that included more tips from your dermatologist! What's essential, what's not, etc. I'm not sure how to go about finding one that wouldn't load you up with unnecessary products, but I feel like it's time to find a good skin doctor. Thanks for all your posts! It's a daily read for me.

BigLittleWolf shouldn't be shy about wearing a fedora. I bought one in Rome a couple of years ago because the sun was far too strong for my pale skin, even with sunscreen. Now whenever I wear it, women ask me where they can get one too (Borsalino in fact, so it is v Italian stylish) Also, I realised the first time I caught sight of myself in the reflection of a shop window that the strong horizontal line of the brim was a great balancer for my shape. Now, jeans, jacket, fedora -- it just works.

I just found your blog and I'm sorry but you make me want to gush. So here goes. I love love love your attitude and your practicality. I just turned 30 and I can see so much here that will help me.

The best part, your cool sidebar.

Just returned from the Languedoc area, and I must say that "ballerines" were everywhere, as well as thin-soled flat little sandals. Is the entire French nation headed for plantar fasciitis???????

Mary said...

Excellent information today, Tish!

I have ONLY been wearing flats now for 33 years and my feet will never allow me to go back. My doctor wouldn't be pleased, either, since I have a diagnosis of osteoporosis and a fall could be dangerous.

There are so many cute flats to choose from it has never been a difficult decision for me. I'm with you, I usually scope out what's new and then wait until after July 4th and I can usually still get some summer wear out of reduced sandals.

My fedora finally got worn yesterday. I have had it in my closet for over a month but I took the plunge. IT WAS A HIT.

I love ballerinas and adore Repetto. Can't get them in Bahrain so shall be stocking up when I'm back in Europe over the summer.

[url=]Zenslim (Зенслим)[/url] is one of the most proven product at the moment. With pure Psyllium seed husks,
caralluma fimbriata, hydroxycitric acid and cissus quadrangularis as its source, it is one of the
best among all ingredients for weight loss pills. It has been touted by a lot of doctors and experts.

[url=]Zenslim (Зенслим)[/url] incorporates a series of patented ingredients to perform several varied, yet
important tasks. Super CitriMax curbs appetite, burns fat and results in significant weight loss
without side effects. Caralluma, the mysterious Indian plant acts in two different ways. Firstly,
it helps our body to burn fat, thereby promoting weight loss. Secondly, it acts as an appetite suppressant
making the hunger go away. Cissus contains vitamin C and calcium among other ingredients and is now used
in many supplements for people who wish to aid recovery after injury or who wish to improve the general
health of their joints, muscles, cartilage and tendons.
