I bought these Emilio Pucci shoes that I can’t stop fawning over at the DSW in Union Square on sale at a price that was so shocking my jaw is still unhinged. If I could make a shoe, it would look a lot like this. The neon tape, the cut-out letters, the patent leather. The best part is, they smell like the leather shops on the back of San Marco in Firenze AND they are comfortable.
I read “The Weight of Water” by Anita Shreve, which was thoughtful, poetic, and suspenseful. Like the rest of her novels, it was read in two days. We have season tickets to The New Group in Manhattan, so had very close seats (I felt spittle) for this disappointing play, hence the lemon. So disappointing, in fact, that I left a negative review on The New York Times.
I actually did do some crafting. Another piece of textile art is in the works and Eleanor the Bear sold! She will be in the mail tomorrow.
