Purple Sueeeede


It's so cold here, the kind of cold that freezes your face into a perma-grimace, complete with wind chapped lips and crystaline boogers. Remember when your mom told you "if you make that face long enough, it might stay that way"? She was talking about winter in New York, and she wasn't fucking kidding.


In the spirit of resenting the cold and having no money, I spent the day revelling in the beautiful new pair of shoes I received courtesy of the truly kind folks at solestruck.com (Seychelles Adios Amigo in purple suede, ya daaamn right!)


and lounging around in far too few clothes, pretending that spring is just around the corner, instead of several times around the block...

heehee I was missing summer earlier this week. In Arizona summer turns to cold quickly and catches me offguard every time.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the octopuses!

purple suede shoes = love!

winter is my nemesis, or it used to be when i lived in montreal, there it was so cold your eyebrows hurt. or at least mine did.

Sunset said...

Aw, I especially love the last photograph. Appreciate the cold, girl! Better than wanting to put on your leggings and big sweaters when it's 75 degrees out. Bleh.

I too am holding out false hope for spring.

Those shoes are amazing!
And take comfort in knowing that over here, in the last week of Spring – in Australia, no less – I am back to wearing a scarf and a winter coat and a woolly hat because it's so damn cold. :)

Tali said...

Kristin said...

i really look the photos of this post, and those shoes.

also, the images of your film look fantastic - photography wise it looks great.

Those shoes are *almost* as awesome as those octopi! I think those are probably a 'must include' in all future shoe shots ;D

riennahera said...

Those octopuses are the best things I've seen today!

Rachel S said...

Can't wait to see all the additions to your shoe collection since last year. Oh, and get ready to get rid of any sort of aphephobia you might have because we are SNUGGLING and you have no choice in the matter.

SOS! said...

true for ya! cool shoesies...

Toni said...

Gorgeous photos and those shoes are really gorgeous! I've been looking for a pair like those to wear with my chic outfit I have planned for my Christmas party.

They would match my black dress and gorgeous diamond necklace from www.idonowidont.com that my fiance bought me for my birthday and now I will stun all my guests!

You have great style and it's freezing here too!

sarah said...

crystaline boogers = a literary gem

rock those shoes with some cable knit tights!

You all are too kind! It's escaping me at the moment where I got my two pet octopi, but I'm pretty sure it was somewhere in San Francisco.

Myself, I'm definitely not the type who longs to put on sweaters and tights, though I totally understand the feeling of being fed up with heat. I hate the height of New York summer only slightly less than the height of New York winter. My dream is to live somewhere where I can wear short dresses and cardigans and nothing else for about 9 months of the year, after which a brief cool/rainy period is allowable. Any suggestions?

i COMPLETELY know what you mean. I live in New York too, and winter can be a doozy. however, many wonderful things come in winter too, like layers and holidays :)
