A Sliver of Good News in the Mail Today

Today was like any other excruciatingly hot day in Southern California….I walked to my mailbox drenched in sweat hoping for some sliver of good news and out came the new Barney’s catalogue. I kept telling myself over and over “fashion doesn’t have to cost a fortune any more, fashion is cheap now!” I tried to flip through the glossy pages with as much indifference as I could, but it sucked me in and by page 11 my heart was beating faster and Mason tearing up all of the other mail didn’t phase me, I was lost in “$1,200.00 for a pair of Lanvin boots isn’t so bad, they’re Lanvin and they’re so me!isn’t that in itself worth their weight in gold? So here I am questioning my dear friend and voice of reason Alison…what do you think Alison….do I need a pair of over-the-knee, black, platform Lanvin boots? Keep in mind I just purchased a pair of OTK suede platform boots (faux ones by Bebe, but very impressive knock-offs), and I have those Marni OTK brown ones….and I think perhaps a few others…..

  1. First of all, I have not received the Barneys catalog so I can't say honestly whether or not your lust is warranted. I received 2 of the same Saks catalog, which had nothing i wanted that badly.

    Secondly, OTK boots are for the young, and I'm sorry to break it to you, but we are no longer young. I can allow you to have one pair, but you already 2 pairs. So if you must have Lanvin, then you must get rid of Marni. And by get rid, I suggest you give them to me to bring to Decades to see if they can be sold.

    Thirdly, where exactly do you wear OTK boots? I know you have to entertain a lot for work, but I know my life is not that glamourous and I can't imagine any of your clients appreciating a fashion-forward sensibility.

    Lastly, if there was any OTK boot I would allow you to have, I think it would be the ones from Rodarte.
