Hello from Kevlavik airport in Iceland! Finally caught some WI-FI and 30 minutes to spare, to write a quick update.
I’m on my way to Portland, OR! Mostly to see the eclipse on monday, but also to drive down the coast to San Francisco. 3 weeks of awesome food and beautiful scenery. Don’t forget to follow along on my Instagram –> @STINEMO to get a glimpse of my trip. I’ll also do my best to update the blog along the way. Kisss
You order a whole lot of stuff online because there’s a sale on (and you’ve got no self control), and there’s that one item that you were most excited about. When you finally pick up the package at the post office, rush home, and try it all on… And of course that one speciel item fits kinda. blah.. Do you know that feeling? That’s what happened with this dress.
I was too lazy to return it, and stashed it at the bottom of my closet. And then a few months later I skeptically try it on, fearing that i can it won’t fit, due to the fact that I’ve been gaining weight in the general ass-area. And miraculously! it actually fit better than when I was a few kilos lighter. Oh happy day!
Do you ever see a piece of clothing or accessory so ugly and impractical, that your first thought is “wow, I must own it”? Like Topshops clear plastic jeans or the disco ball body suit by GUCCI. This was more or less what went through my mind, when I stumbled upon those heels with a pink fur insole (so-called “ugly-pretty shoe) . Because who needs a fur insole in a sandal? In winter boots, it makes sense. But open toe sandals? Not so much.
*I can confirm that the bottom of my feet went rather sweaty after a while in these.
The shoes have been patiently waiting for me to wear them, on an shelf accompanied by other decorative items. My miniature sculpture of a nude female torso, a vintage Olympus OM-3 and a silver piggybank in the shape of bulldog. You know, the usual.
They often became the object obtaining most attention from guests, like Marie who said something along the lines of “What, those shoes are so ugly! Can I try them on?”
