Kathryn here. Hi! *waves*
It's embarrassing to admit, but I actually kinda loved this moment in The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda (Meryl Streep) goes off on Andy about how her cerulean sweater represents millions of dollars and countless jobs; and how Miranda explains (rather condescendingly) the trickle-down effect that high fashion has on even the everyday person who thinks that they take themselves too seriously to care about what they put on their back. It's a great little scene, and in my opinion it holds true, since I feel like I can see how the trickle-down effect in fashion comes to fruition each season when I "oooh" and "ahhh" over new arrivals at places like J.Crew and Anthro and even Target.
Not that I'm really trying to make a bold analytical statement with that. It's just one of my favorite scenes in the movie, is all.
But lately I've been putting together a "fashion bucket list" in my mind, and I've decided that first on my "bucket list" is a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps.
Throughout my search for "the perfect black pumps" (staring at different styles on the internet, sneaking by the Louboutin boutique, dragging my husband along with me as I do my "research"...you know, really healthy things!), I must say that I can definitely understand why my husband or anybody else would snicker at me like Andy snickers when the assistant says that the two nearly identical-looking turquoise belts are hard to decide between because they're so different!
I've been staring at a lot of nearly identical-looking black patent pumps. A lot. A lot a lot. And I feel like I might care a little too much about them.
But I wanna feel like Malcolm Reynolds did, in Firefly...the first time he laid eyes on Serenity. I want a pair of Loubs. I want to treat them well, and I want them to be with me for the rest of my life.
Anyway, I think I've narrowed down my finalists to the following:
So, yeah. Nothing really serious about #srsbsnss, but Loubs are just one of a handful of items I hope to check off on my "list" in the near future.
Do you have a fashion bucket list? If so, what's on yours?
As always, thanks so much for reading!
