Sniffle sniffle cough cough, the anthem of the season.
It’s one of those deceptive days – the sun shines brightly outside, filtering through the just-turned yellow leaves, the sky is blue, the clouds are wispy. I feel bad for staying inside and neglecting this beautiful fall day. But when I glance at the thermometer – 47 degrees. Woohoo.
I’m here, warm and inside, ironically – because I have a(nother) bad cold, I couldn’t go to the [all-day] XC invite 1 1/2 hours away. So instead of freezing outside and running, I’m inside looking at the runway shows. Mmm. So while I hate being sick, I don’t mind sipping hot cider in sweats and dreaming up fantasy outfits.
kerCHOOOOO. Scuse me.
On my to-do list for today: find grey thread so I can make my grey suede bag (mmm), do at least one outfit photo session (haven’t done on in ages due to lack of time), track down a copy of Les Miserables (my next read), and not run out of tissues.
A few fashion tidbits to bring you good tidings:
JAK&JIL – Miu Miu socks (and boots?) I still want/need to find a pair of boots like these (preferably in the sub-$1200 range…)

Article: Why Do Women Wear Crazy Shoes? [NYmag]
“…We wear high heels sometimes because we like the way they look. Also because it’s just fun to be taller. Especially when you’re out with your man, and you have spectacular new seven-inch heels on (that you perhaps got an amazing deal on at a sample sale) and you’re finally taller than him, and he’s kind of embarrassed, but when you greet assorted friends, they say, “Wow! Your shoes are amazing! You’re so tall!” And you can say, “I know! I’m taller than him now!” ”
