Never say never

Outfit: Vanessa Bruno Athé playsuit, Hermes Cape Cod watch and Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats.


Never say never. That should be my mantra. I didn't hide my disdain for jumpsuits and playsuits (or rompers to those of you in the U.S) previously. After all, my ever practical self sniffed at all the rigmarole one has to go through just to pee. And then.....I succumbed. This broderie anglaise playsuit from Vanessa Bruno Athé hung in my closet for so long that I was convinced it would be properly vintage by the time I wore it at 80 years of age with knobbly knees. I get why the trend is still going strong. Just put on the all in one outfit and you're good to go. You don't even have to think.

I don't generally do cutesy things but don't these whimsical Kitty flats put a smile on your face? Erm...I mean mine. The golden cat is supposed to bring luck. That remains to be seen....... I can't bring myself to buy a maneki-neko (the ceramic kitty with a waving paw) but I don't mind them on my feet (shoe obsessed individual here so normal logic doesn't prevail.....). I've learned that patent leather takes an awfully long time to break in. This includes having these patent Kitty flats professionally stretched twice and a week of hobbling about at home with them glued to my feet. I have very verrrrry low pain threshold for fashion. They're finally just right. So my advice is.....get the velvet ones.

  1. YES YES YES to the playsuit! I'm loving the ensemble, you're so ready for this heatwave. Myself, I'm all about a silky jumpsuit, it's like having my legs kissed by a thousand butterflies! x

  2. Oh that is the most perfect jumpsuit. And I would forgive any toilet difficulties if I had that too. And the shoes ... I love them but I don't think I would have the patience to break them in. But duly noted - don't get the patent ones!

  3. If you're going to wear a playsuit / romper then you might as well go full-bore and wear the cute kitty shoes too ;-)

  4. Hahaha, had to laugh when I read your post. If I could write as well as you can, I could have written this. From jumpsuit to the maneki-neko to the patent leather shoes, to the shoe obsession and the "take the velvet ones". Great post.

  5. Surprisingly, I like this romper...on you. But really, for the life of me, I really do not understand why women are so willing to wear this. I mean, really, it is not easy to handle.
    It reminds me of the bodies that were all the rage in the eighties (yes long time ago) and some did not have at taht time a way to open: very easy to go to the loo....
    Worse in my opinion being the jumpsuit! And I like your kitty shoes... well I've got mine (cats) so I guess it is enough for me. As a fellow small feet, I took the splurge and bought my first Church's pair of shoes, some glazed silver leather derbies. They are a bit large, it was to be expected with this brand. And the leather is quite strong and needs bsome reaking in but I am very happy to have them.
    Theu were on sale, from MyTheresa.

    1. I think I've seen the Church's Derbys. You can't go wrong. They're built to last forever.
