Comfortable Heels (Not An Oxymoron)…

I’ve been meaning to tell you about these shoes for some weeks now. They were gifted from Everlane but sold out almost immediately, so I’ve been watching and waiting to see when they would be restocked. They’re going to be getting the black and natural suede back in stock in limited quantities, so wanted to give you a heads-up in case you want to pre-order. The styling is clean and classic, and they can dress up or down, depending on what you wear them with.

I’m wearing my normal pump size (7.5) and I have to tell you, they are butter soft and felt like slippers from the moment I put them on. I’ve even worn them to walk the dogs! Some of the review mention that they might work better for narrow feet, but my feet are on the wide side and no issues. I’m not seeing a re-stock date yet for the red ones, but you can add your name to a waitlist to be notified.

Good Reads…

Style blogger Susan B. from une femme d'un certain age recommends The Price Of Illusion by Joan Juliet Buck

I generally don’t have as much time to read as I’d like, and tend to favor fiction, history and biographies over memoirs. But after reading Allie’s interview with Joan Juliet Buck at Wardrobe Oxygen, I was intrigued. And this memoir delivers. It’s just gossipy enough to be entertaining, and with balanced with introspection to add substance and humanity. I’ve especially enjoyed her accounts of the London, New York and Paris fashion scenes from the 1960’s through the 2000’s. I still have a couple of chapters to go.

A Cuppa…

I’m not usually much of a tea drinker. I don’t particularly care for most herbal teas (except for the occasional mint) and if I’m going to drink something caffeinated, it’s going to be coffee. I had my first taste of rooibos tea at Frances’ place, and really liked it. More oomph than herbal or green teas, but no caffeine. I’ve picked up this “Double Red” at the grocery store, but will definitely be trying other flavors/blends. It’s supposed to be full of good stuff like antioxidants and minerals.

Do you like rooibos tea? Any favorite flavors? Please also feel free to share anything good you’ve read lately.
