Here I am a couple of days ago, in my Black Halo top, Acne jeans and Karl Lagerfeld shoes from 1994. My Prada Gaufre bag is on the table. I’m standing in a hotel lobby.
And here I am in March 2008, in my Black Halo top, Acne jeans and 1994 Karl Lagerfeld shoes. My Prada bag is on the table. I’m standing in the same hotel lobby.
As for those Lagerfeld shoes, earlier that evening (the most recent evening, I mean, not the March evening) I was browsing the sale shoes at Neiman Marcus, and one of the saleswomen said, “I love those Lagerfeld shoes! I have the same ones.” When I disbelievingly said that they were over 10 years old, she said, “Yes, I’ve had them forever and I got them in red too!” So that was my little “you keep your shoes forever too?” bonding moment with a stranger for the month.
Also in the recent photo, I’m wearing the Lancome red lipstick/black gloss combo I posted about here. It finally arrived. I found if you just put the tiniest amount of black gloss on, it gives the red a beautiful dimension, but as Jennine mentioned in her comment on my previous post, it did a hell of a lot of bleeding. The more gloss I used, the worst bleeding there was, of course. But what really annoyed me is that even without the gloss, the lipstick was migrating off my lips, which is something I don’t usually have a problem with. I’m disappointed with Lancome. I feel like they didn’t make a good effort to test the quality of their product. That’s why you should come shop my fine jewelry sale. I personally wear-test everything to make sure, for instance, that the earrings are comfortable and that the lockets stay closed. Get busy, people! You’re running out of time for holiday shopping. Remember, I still have one pair of the shoulder-dusting Cleopatra earrings in silver. They’re long but amazingly lightweight. They’re not on the site yet, so if you’re interested, email me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com.
