Barneys had their semiannual bag event, which ended yesterday I met Sara for lunch, and she brought her friend Shannon again... so the three of us headed over to Barneys.
Sara bought makeup... I got Aedes de Venustas Iris Nazarena.
A few weeks ago, I got these shoes. I've been kind of embarrassed about getting them. They were super expensive, although what I paid was $600 less than their selling price. I'm also not sure about when I would have the chance of wearing them. Well, here they are:
I guess Alexander McQueen put out a bunch of things with this motif for last fall. I like the suits with the stained glass. I'm not sure about wearing a whole outfit with the design, though. For me, just the shoes are good.. I wouldn't want to overdo it. The women's dresses and purses, though look nice. A scarf might work, too, for either men or women. But I am happy with the shoes.
When I first saw the shoes, I kept thinking of a scene in the movie, Performance, towards the beginning, when James Fox, as a gangster, is trying to rent a room in reclusive rock star Mick Jagger's house to escape police and other gangsters. Mick Jagger is saying he doesn't want any tenants. James Fox is smoking a cigarette, and an ash falls to the floor, atop an oriental rug. Mick tells Fox, that rug is 200 years old. Fox just says, "Valuable antique, is it?" Anyway, when I saw the shoes, the image from the film of the ashes falling to the rug kept coming to my head.
