A few mornings ago, in my just-awakened stupor, I answered my phone. On the other end was Vivian, in an overexcited frenzy one can only get when in a shoe sale, telling me that Repetto Zizi's were $'you'd-be-insane-to-let-these-slip'. That was followed up by a lot of 'errr?'s and 'huh?'s on my part but thankfully, even in my daze, the bargain hunter in me stepped in and asked her to buy them for me. Now that I have them, I can say they are well worth the money - the goatskin leather is so buttery soft that the shoes feel like they've already been worn in, the heel is just the right height to prevent it from looking too similar to school shoes and the sole is thin and flexible.
Today I curled my hair (and also wore Tom Ford's Black Orchid). Mum said I look like a middle aged house-wife with my hair done like this.
I am wearing the aforementioned shoes and my COS top. I was going to go out with trousers then at the last minute I changed my mind and wanted to look as if I was going to a funeral. The coat is my mum's from the 80's (vintage, adorable?) and whoops, you can see the lining of my coat - what a rookie mistake.
