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.
