Twin and I braved Macy's last night in search of shoes. We need to remember that the Macy's shoe department is not for the faint-hearted on a Friday night. I have never seen so many women and so many shoes together in one place before in my life. Shoes and boxes were scattered everywhere. The poor sales clerks traveled around the department surrounded by a perpetual swarm of women, all of them clamoring to thrust shoes into the clerks' hands and shout their size at them. I didn't find any shoes that were worth the trouble of jumping into the fray until I saw these red ones in the juniors department. They are Dr. Scholl's. I didn't even know Dr. Scholl's makes shoes, much less incredibly cute shoes. I also tried on these Keds, though they didn't have my size. I think I'm going to have to order them online, because they have owls on them. Owls! Hoot.
And look what came in the mail! My pin+pocket from Sally. Eeee! Friends, these are as carefully constructed, beautifully designed, and thoughtfully presented and packaged as you might expect from the genius that is Shim. And there was also a sneak peek of the stationery goodness that is to come, and I have to tell you it is gorgeous. I'll be stalking her shop relentlessly from now on.
It is a beautiful saturday here—we're headed to the park. And I actually have been at my sewing machine today, which puts me in a most happy frame of mind. A capital mood, as my friend Pip says. Must be something about spring. Or maybe it's the new shoes. :)
