Szeki moving sale

I’m super excited about heading over to the Szeki moving sale at 16 Clinton St. This is her final weekend at this location, and starting Feb. 15 she will be on Rivington between Clinton and Norfolk, next to Honey in the Rough. Because she didn’t want to move everything, she’s having a moving sale. Sale dresses $99 and sale tops $59. I’ll be there around 6:30 or so, hoarding as many hangers as I possibly can.

Must beautiful shoes be so painful?

Farylrobin ElaineI purchased a ridiculously discounted pair of Farlyrobin peeptoe pumps from Clarabella’s closing sale over the weekend ($50 from $250). With a hidden platform and retro styling, the combination of black suede, embossed leather, smooth leather and snakeskin make these heels breathtaking in that rockabilly pinup kind of way.

I bought a half size up because my usual size was uncomfortably tight, and even so, halfway through my half-mile walk to work, I found myself with a painful blister on my heel. Upon limping to work, I procured three band-aids and I’m muscling through.

Oh, vanity.
