on my mind

Did you ever know something wasn't good for you, but you just had to have it anyway? No, I'm not referring to my sometimes insane cravings for ice cream or cookies. This item on my mind is widely regarded as unflattering, too 80s, or just plain ugly. The item is this pair of trendoid shoes.

I have pictured them with my dresses, with my skinny jeans, with my tights. I am watching them on 4 websites, hoping one will just lower the price a little more. I have tried to justify that they would act as my "Florida equivalent" to winter boots, since they truly just don't stock knee-high boots in the stores here.

I haven't made up my mind yet, but I will keep holding out until they drop in price or drop out of my mind!

I bought a pair of oxfords the other day. I'll be sure to model how stumpy my legs look the minute they get in.

It's even worse when the damn things are *on sale*

my favourites have to be the chloƩ silveradoes.


Christine said...

ambika- i'm glad you found some oxfords! i love heeled oxfords, too.

sick- yes! these come from my original love of the silveradoes, which i could never, never afford!

Those are great! I'd say check vintage but I never find such understatedly sexy looks in secondhand stores...

Oh, they are gorgeous.

Worth the investment, I'm sure...!

Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.
