Just a quick post before I check myself in to a psychiatric hospital.
I figure I need to get my head examined, given the exquisite and exquisitely priced things I've been falling for lately.
• See by Chloe slingback clogs ($270). I have purchased three wooden-soled shoes in as many weeks, and I still cannot get enough. These are beyond cool with the strap, studs and partially covered wedge.
• Hasbeens ($362, including $52 shipping. Woof). See? Again with the clog. I'm not a fan of the regular clogs, but something about these — the Skittles colors? The laces? — really makes me drool. The website has a model wearing 'em with denim cutoffs, and it just looks so darn cute.
• Gryphon Knotted Jersey Tee Dress ($218). A few friends give me a lot of flak for my ever-expanding jersey dress collection, but this one is simply irresistible. The knots add edge and 'zazz. The form-fitting shape is flat-out sexy. Both elements elevate the humble, easy-to-wear jersey dress to a whole new level. Really, it doesn't even count as jersey.
• Sonia by Sonia Rykiel faux fur coat ($545). As a general rule, I shy away from Sonia Rykiel stuff. Her hair scares me. Perhaps that's not a valid reason for avoiding an entire clothing line, but I just can't get that crazy coif out of my head. This oversized animal print coat makes me forgive the bad hair. Love the scale of the spots — and fur was alllllll over the runways for fall again. Yippee.
So there you have it. If a subsequent post involves IRL photos of any of these items, well, you'll know I've truly lost it. Or, I'll be dead because my husband would absolutely kill me.
