A few hours walking around a few arrondissements in Prada patent leather pumps have left me with more than a few blisters.
Too bad I didn’t find these Valentino suede ankle-strap pumps — two-inches shorter than my usual shoe — two time zones ago. Parisienne blogger Garance Doré knew what she was about fancying them on The Fancy; I could have been jogging around Notre Dame without wanting to walk like Quasimodo…

The beauty of Aldo Cipullo’s Juste un Clou bracelet was that it was just a nail, and, because of that, so much more. As a gold nail bent into a unisex bangle bracelet, its open oval invited questions about form, function, and femininity.
But the contemporary Cartier version detailed in diamonds? Just another piece of jewelry…
The Cartier Love bracelet, I mean, not the red acrylic nails (those would be buffed only, please)…
While I prefer the minimalist luxe of Aldo Cipullo’s Love bracelet, I suppose I could live with this vintage Cartier Le Menotte Bangle in diamonds and 18k white gold…

I just found a pair of Giuseppes, size 38, on eBay, that I will not be wearing…
Things I wear everyday, all day. I’ve a predilection for things that are beautiful but built to last, and would likely be rapped about by Jay-Z…
What time is it? Time to stop checking my gold Pres…
I’ve got two looks: bed-head, burgundy bobbed hair; a made-to-measure, monogrammed shirt dress; four-inch Giuseppes; a vintage Hermes Herbag; a gold President; a couple Cartier Love bracelets; and a white gold “K” pinkie ring –
And my dog lady look.
It’s usually a gray leggings and a black boatneck, 3/4-sleeved T, but for summer I need an update. I’m thinking of translating Jackie O’s black T and white jeans uniform into a black racerback tank and white linen shorts, like these, by SOMEWHERE.

These Eileen Fisher espadrille ballerina flats may seem ridiculously priced for rope slippers, until you consider that they’ve carefully crafted leather soles, that their minimalist shape is a sophisticated contrast to the classical Chinese shoes they echo, and that with the exchange rate, those 15-Euros espadrilles I buy in Cannes really cost 15,000 US rubles.
Normally products with unavoidable advertisements cost less than their more elegant competitors…
