A recent visit to JCrew resulted in me trying on a special pair of shoes, their Mona patent leather mary jane heels. No more than 5 seconds after the last button was in place I had a flashback which can only be compared to food critic, Anton Ego’s, childhood memory in the movie Ratatouille. My very first MJ’s (not Marc Jacobs) were flat, patent leather, and black. Worn with white lace-trimmed socks to church, they were the shoes that made me feel like a little princess, and were part of my first few outfits I put together that didn’t require my mother’s help. Who can forget the first shinny thing that made them feel special?!
If you’re just about to board onto the color-blocking train or have been working your way to those train steps, it would be best if you throw yourself off now or let this one go by. Cause this trend, has gone into overkill territory like the florals all day everyday trend.
I of all people shouldn’t be saying such things, after all blocking those colors up down and all around has been a styling favorite of mine for years now. Years I say, so I know when it’s time to let go of something for awhile, just to make space for something new, the technicolor way of dressing.
To love you should be ok with feeling pain. For me, the longer I’ve had that love in my life, depending on the situation, it makes it easier to let it go when the time comes. The memories, and the lessons learned shall help me move on easier, but what about the new found loves that come into your lives, and leave before they can stay a couple of nights in your house or your apt? You haven’t been able to show off your cute outfits for this love and see if it compliments your looks or not.
