With the exception of a few flats, all my shoes have at least a four-inch-high arch — not heel. Platforms are a shortcut to standing five inches taller, but you need at least four inches of exaggerated arch to tilt you onto your tip-toes and stretch your legs long.
And now I’ve broken my rule with these Donna Karan Collection cork slides. These Donna Karan cork slides have a 4¼-inch heel that cheats with a two-inch platform, but I’ll compromise for the sandals’ retro chunky heel that wears like air.
What do I dig most about these Donna Karan Collection cork slides, besides their ridick comfort letting me walk for hours along a Basque beach during my July vacay?
The way the silk-linen straps hook the back of that cork heel. So choice…

Hermes reissued their Herbag a season or so ago, which bummed me out. Forgetting their form and function, I dig Hermes Herbags for their obscurity.
But I’m over feeling anything for the new Herbags. Their only improvement is an interior pocket. Other than that, the new Herbags are a downgrade from the original Herbags. The new Hermes Herbags have canvas that isn’t rubberized waterproof, come in Easter egg shades best left to baby Birkins, and their pieces aren’t interchangeable.

Over the last couple of years I’ve edited my look down to a formula: bed-head, bobbed hair; a racerback tank dress; a shawl-neck wrap coat; stiletto slippers; and a vintage Hermes Herbag.
You can’t beat an Hermes Herbag. Equal parts form and function, its classic Kelly shape is formed out of bridle leather and rubberized canvas. I tote a 30 cm Hermes Herbag to dinner and park-play with my German Shepherd Major Dukes, and a 40cm Hermes Herbag travels with me on the flying bus.
Even better? Vintage Hermes Herbags disassemble into interchangeable parts. I have three Hermes Herbags, and I mix and match their bags and straps…
