“you must not ever stop being whimsical. and you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life.” // m. oliver
you wouldn’t know it – if you saw me skulking down the street a little bit like truffaut’s julie kohler - but i have a most fantastic sense of humour, a keen appreciation of silly, and a certain fondness for whimsy. it’s just that i don’t wear it out in the open, on my sleeve, per se. but, i can sense the shift as the days grow longer, and for about 90 seconds it’s sunny and warm – everyone is starting to let their freak flags fly, whether it be full on, or in small doses – you can’t keep the whimsy at bay.

“if you want to catch more fish, use more hooks.” // g. allen sr.
considering my taste in decor – you’d think i’d subscribe more readily to the ‘less is more’ ideal. clean lines and geometrics is where my eye stoically sits, but that’s all surface. because lurking inside every drawer, and behind every closed door creeps the secret of my excess.
better behaved than i was before, it’s not a matter of accumulation, but one of intense procrastination. i’m neat on the outside, chaotic on the inside, like some warped kids’ candy. i hate filing, i detest the idea of ‘spring cleaning’, i turn a blind eye on things that don’t interest me, until they can no longer be ignored because it’s all come falling down around me – a pile of papers, a jumble of tissue, an onslaught of coats and scarves from every-which season. and though i know at some point i’m going to have to put it all away in some tidy fashion, for now – i’ll just keep putting up hooks and hoping that they’ll bear the weight of my idling.

“…a woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes.” // c. louboutin
there is some element of truth in saying that the shoes you choose, can and will say quite a bit about you.
whether kitten-heeled or stilettoed, lug or platform – your soles can whisper or shout out a little bit about your disposition. i should know, because mine fluctuate between howling like a ruffian or hopscotching and singing a tune like an eight year old. i alternate between platform-soled creepers and slip-on plimsolls. there is no in-between. if i must get gussied up, the closest thing to pretty (in my definition) would be a pair of wedges taking me up to a towering height of 5’6″ instead of my lowly 5’2″.
shoes, for me, are not what they are for a lot of women – i’ll take a handbag or lipgloss over going shoe shopping any day, as those are easy to fit, both in style and in comfort. there are so many i adore, but shoes and i, we just have a complicated relationship – i always end up hurting.
