After leaving overcast Berlin it was a relief to touch down under the clear, blue skies of Milan. Italy was where hubs and I were to spend the bulk of our trip and I have so many things to share with you all! Once we had checked in to our hotel, we were right back out the door to visit one of the most anticipated stops of our whole trip. The very first thing we did was hop on the underground to go to Fondazione Prada and get a drink at Bar Luce, a bar designed by my hero, director Wes Anderson. If you’re not already a fan, the films to watch are Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom, Rushmore just to start you off. Anderson’s aesthetic is wonderfully quirky and beautiful. I was super excited to be in a place designed by him and feel like a character in one of his films.
I think that Friday is the day of glitter. Its the last day of the working week so its full of excitement for the weekend which shimmers, just out of reach and its also the most exhausting day of the week because you’ve just slogged through the previous four days. Both very good reasons to wear glitter. A sign of bubbling excitement for the weekend and a flash of joy to get you through that very last day. And really, who doesn’t get a kick out of glitter? If you’re sitting there, shaking your head thinking “no Katie, glitter is for fools” then I think you’re reading the wrong blog. So, without further ado, here is a Favourites post about something that always cheers me up – these fab little gold glitter brogues.
Who could be sad while wearing these babies?
Exactly. No one.
I bought these about a month ago in Target while I was looking in the kids section. Kids shoes to be more precise. I have ridiculously tiny feet which is mostly a blessing because it means that I can sometimes pick up some bargains in the kids section. These shoes are often a bit cheaper and cuter than adults shoes. I take a size 36 European or a 5 1/2 in Australian sizes (or 3 in UK!) which is fun to say and see people’s reactions.
Imagine my excitement when I rifled through the rack and not only found a size large enough for me but found that these (already reasonably priced) shoes were reduced from $25 to $10! All I needed to do was replace the ugly beige laces with these sweet black ribbons and voila! Sparkle brogues for friday.
So how do you lovelies feel about glitter? Fridays?
