|Hermes. For years, I considered caftans "at home wear" and I have yet to meet a woman who wears long, lush leather gloves chez elle.|
During my first day out on my virtual shopping expedition yesterday, I realized once again what some clothes represent. I remember thinking years ago, when I saw a pair of pink satin, marabou-puffed mules chez Chanel, "now, that's the life I would like to lead." In my dreams.
Furthermore, for some inexplicable reason, one of my dogs -- and she's huge -- steps on my shoes at least three or four times a day. I don't lead a satin muled life.
While pulling some of my choices together I discovered the coral caftan from Hermes. It is pure glamor and suggests a lifestyle. When clothes are evocative and transcend the quotidian, I find them fascinating.
Moving along. . . It's a headline day:
Would You? Could You?
I'm merely asking.
Oh, And I Thought It Was Jewelry. . .
|Boxes of Patrick Roger chocolates.|
Let's say you are sometimes momentarily blinded by excitement -- an odor that harkens cherished memories, a color that signals Tiffany (!) for example.
Tiffany. That's what I thought for a nanosecond the first time I saw a box of chocolates from Patrick Roger . They are delicious, but they're not keepsakes.
At the moment the magazines are suggesting we run out and buy a collection of his chocolate marbles. They apparently make us think of back-to-school. I would think a chocolate iPad would make children think "back-to-school," but what do I know?
At the moment, I'm in my third week of dieting with Dr. Pierre Dukan. I don't think I'll be permitted to savor a piece of chocolate until late 2012.
Not Just Another White Shirt
Under the subject of we can never own too many white shirts, another example to prove the point, from COS .
Look at it this way, the vertiginous "Fetish" shoes (that's what they're called) featuring sweet petite patent leather ribbon bows are probably waterproof. Price: 630 Euros.
