this is a pretty typical outfit for me in the warmer weather. and lately i’ve been thinking about sneakers a lot. i find that they just somehow have the power to make any outfit look complete and that little bit more cool than just a sandal or thongs (flip-flops) would do. mum bought these from somewhere in paris on our trip 2 years ago and i only just remembered they existed. i love it when that happens. you buy something and wear it and love it, then forget about for a prolonged period of time, and in some event (usually cleaning out cupboards) you find them again. it’s like getting new clothing. yet more like an old love. rekindling a flame. it’s kind of special and romantic. well, as romantic as inanimate objects can be. if at all.
speaking of an old love. new york. yes. new york. and when i say old love i am referring not to the fact that we have held each other in one another’s arms, but the fact that i have dreamt of the moment that we would embrace for years now, which by my standards makes me pretty much in love. and the time has finally come for this union to become a reality. and in the best way possible too – with my best friend. i’m literally freaking out every time i think about it. there is this part of me that is nervous to go because it won’t be like a movie or like any of the dreams that i’ve conjured during countless sleeps (not to mention all the day dreams). but it will. and i repeat, will. be incredible! i’m utterly excited and additionally nervous as to how i am going to save enough money to buy myself a pair of manolo blahnik’s. okay maybe not manolo’s. i’m no carrie bradshaw. but i think i can sacrifice a couple of meals for a bit of fashion food. then again, this vego thing hasn’t been exactly swimming…
to equal amounts of fashion and food.
