I was having brunch with Melissa and a musician friend this morning, and I had to excuse myself to go home and lie down I was feeling so poorly. Out of the blue I was experiencing a kind of abdominal pain that I'd never felt before. It was so unexpected and so novel, I had visions of a visit to the emergency room dancing in my head. Followed by a long, drawn out debilitating illness, loss of my job and free lance work, and foreclosure on my home.
Needless to say, I have a vivid imagination.
Fortunately, as I peck out these words on my laptop, I am feeling better. At this point I seem to have just a low grade fever and a body full of general aches and pains. Having said that, I'm not so fully recovered that I want to push myself to assemble a highly detailed post. So please bear with me. With your indulgence, I'll just share a couple of items and use the rest of the day to nap and to read my latest sci-fi novel on my fiancée's iPad.
I will say that when Melissa looked in on me at one point in the afternoon, I showed her a pair of newly listed booties I'd just pounced on on eBay with a Buy It Now. As she pointed out as we were assessing whether a doctor's visit was necessary, I may feel under the weather, but clearly I'm well enough to be thinking about shoes!
Another pair of clogs at Free People
A Free People catalog arrived for Melissa a week or so back, and Candace Swanepoel fan that she is, she was immediately drawn to the work this Victoria's Secret supermodel (according to Forbes she was one of the top ten best paid models of 2012) was doing for this new retailer. At 5' 10" she does tall and lanky so effortlessly. But then put her in a pair of wood soled shoes, and I just want to go out and start up a multi-national clog manufacturing company just so I can hire her to pose in my styles.
Here's the catalog shot that created a buzz here in our corner of the clog universe.
And here are the shoes themselves. Not your typical clogs, but still loaded with wooden goodness.
And while I'm sitting here thinking my usual "so many shoes, so little time" mantra, don't miss these other Free People offerings.
Hmmm. Ya know, looking at these photos, I may just have to follow one of the links credit card in hand.
Okay. Time to lie down again. I'm sitting on an assortment of articles I hope to assemble for next weekend. Think healthful thoughts for me!
