Objects of Desire
Ah, the thrill of the chase. I'm convinced beyond the shadow of a doubt that, at least for me, the act of desiring is much more powerful than the act of acquiring. Or as Elizabeth Taylor once aptly put it, "It's not the having, it's the getting." Here, here sister. Make that me and Elizabeth Taylor. 👊🏻 👊🏽
I'm deep (read ~4 days) into an existential crisis of a sartorial nature. This is a somewhat regular occurrence in my life that sounds dramatic, but essentially involves a desire to sell all my clothes, etch the new woman I want to be, and dress my reinvention accordingly. DO YOU DO THIS? REGULARLY? Anyway, because desiring something is a pleasure unto itself, I'm allowing myself to relish in the joy of wanting a few things, irrespective of whether I actually ever end up getting them. Here goes:
Suzanne Rae Mustard Satin Mary Jane's via Lisa Says Gah
Literal and figurative bananas. ARE THESE NOT THE BEST SHOES EVER?!?! She's also a designer whose brand lives sustainability, so even better. I'm curious about these shoes being made in China, but that's nothing a quick question to the designer can't solve.
1920s Silk Robe via True Value Vintage on Etsy
It's all robe all the time in my new closet.
Crinkled fabric? Check. Open toe? Check. The only con here is that these are a poly-blend, which could potentially be overlooked in the case of these fine shoes.
Adding this here to go for an entirely monochromatic mustard silk effect with the Suzanne Rae shoes.
