New Shoes, New York

This is it…the last minutes before I head out to New York. Hopefully… with the snow storm that looms, my flight is canceled, so I’ll be riding in on a train half way across North America. That’s 20 hours… I’m calling it ‘European Style’ traveling, because I can’t remember the last time I took a train anywhere in America!

I’m ready, I’m more than ready, I’m anxious to get through this… it’s been a lot of hard work preparing for fashion week, seemingly even harder than ever. Also, more exciting. This time I have decided to try not go go in rags…like all the previous times before, I did get a few new items (I’ve yet to show you) but this last piece was an impulse buy.. After seeing these Jessica Simpson  Charles Anastase knock offs on Aparrallel, I instantly went searching for them… I had to have them. Sure, they’re knock offs…they’re ‘wood’ (plastic) heels… but that much wood would be super heavy, and loud!  I just fell in love. So much for resisting the ‘clog trend’ these kind of go in that category. The truth is,  I haven’t even been much of a platform wearer since the mid/late 90’s, and for $90…I figured why not? I tried to get the ones in tan,but they completely sold out. Now the pewter ones are almost sold out too. Dang. Anyway, I hope it doesn’t snow too much more, because I really want to wear them this week!
