I'm loathe to cover up the previous post of Jennifer (Style East, below: 'we come in peace') in case you're just tuning in. But that's the nature of a blog, babes: we're like sharks, we've got to move forward or.. what? Anyway, I never did tell you the story of what happened to me that day @ the Topshop Knigthsbridge preview thingy ('beware the sirens, sailors') but I guess you figured saw it coming. I was the only clueless one.
You see, I thought the whole idea when they said we could try things on was to have fun, take a few pictures, eat some breakfasty things, and toodle off. So I snapped..
.. and snapped..
... and admired, oohed a bit, ahhhed a bit more.. and when I was done, I was like, thank you very much. I didn't know we could buy things, at a press discount!
I blame these girls. They go by the names of Amy, and Alice, and they are part of the Topshop Personal Shoppers initiative, and they are Trouble with a capital T. They will make you buy things you had no intention of buying.
But I must say... I love my new shoes. They are so not me. I'm normally a flats girl: sandals, boots, brogues, little ballet pumps. These are my first ever wedges. I have had to learn to walk all over again, and after the first day in them, I went swimming and literally cramped up. Mr. Dot wants to know why they're on the coffee table in the living room: I just think they're the most beautiful, sculptural works of art.
But change is good. It makes us look at things differently. I can wear the same clothes, but with these shoes, it's a whole new ball game.
What have you worn, or done, recently, that took you out of your comfort zone? How was it for you?
(New/old looking faded shorts from H&M, striped Breton top from Zara, jacket vintage i.e. I've had it from my NY days from Piazza Sempione, Barneys NY, and pale sea green gorgeous suede lace up wedges.. Topshop. Post title by the film of the same name with Robert DeNiro. Have you seen it? It's pretty good. The title just cracks me up.)
