Since early childhood, I have been fascinated with the accouterment of femininity. My favorite “toys” were my Mom’s black kitten heels and a silk scarf. Those heels spent more time on my little feet than they did on hers. From the age of three, I dreamed of growing up to wear red lipstick and high heels.
After getting my first job, I still remember saving two paychecks to spend all of the money in one day on five pairs of high heels on sale at the end of summer. Throughout my life, when I have felt sad or less than well, getting dressed and adding a colorful scarf and snazzy shoes has instantly elevated my mood. My formula for getting dressed has almost always been the same; wear great fitting classic pieces that flatter my shape and then change the look and attitude with accessories.
We snapped these photos after my Wednesday lunch date with Mr. Mickey. I am wearing a color block tunic I showed you earlier. The off white pants are the same color as the off white on the tunic, and they are from last year by Fabrizio Gianni. The shoes are from last year by Sam Edelman. The bag is by Michael Kors. The sunglasses are by Dolce & Gabbana.
