as you have likely figured, esme’s shopping mojo has been at an all-time low.  this is not necessarily a bad thing.  part of it is that she really has plenty of clothes and that, at least for now, she seems to have found a look she can live with.  that said, a few recent discoveries have gotten her shopping juices going again.

esme should form a group called THE ECCENTRIC PANTS CLUB.  perhaps it will only have a membership of one, but eccentric pants seem to be gaining a wee bit of traction in the world of mainstream fashion.  many of the voluminous, strangely detailed bottoms that esme has collected over the years are suddenly coming into their own.  indeed, the words “fluid”, “volume”, and “over-sized” appear quite frequently in the fashion magazines.

my latest discovery is a fantastic pair of….can one really call them pants?….by CREA that i found on sale at SYLVIE’S.  black of course.  knit.  one of those garments where you stick your legs into little holes in the bottom and pull them up.  something between a skirt and a pant.  a drop-crotch garment where the crotch hits at your ankles!  too eccentric for most, but just esme’s cup of tea!  and mr. noir (high five buddy!) approves.  now how many husbands would do that?

these are so comfy.  i wear them with my ARCHE ankle boots.  the only problem is that the sweatshirt top that was meant to go with them was sold out.  internet to the rescue:  i found one on a british website (JULES B), and after some initial technical difficulty, ordered one right up!

can’t wait for the UPS truck to arrive,

JOLIE LAIDE SANDALS and A HINT OF CLEAVAGE

May 19, 2014

it was a hot day in carmel (pushing 80 for goodness sakes!).  sundresses were bursting out all over.  time to rummage in the back of the closet to see if the sleeveless things one had bought in a state of hopefulness in years gone by were still there.  score!  i found a little PRAIRIE UNDERGROUND […]

JOLIE LAIDE FOOTWEAR

May 13, 2014

  suddenly, jolie laide footwear is all the rage.  for summer, this stampede is lead by the iconic birkenstock.  i remember when birkenstocks first hit the big time.  i was living in san francisco and there was a little store on columbus ave. that sold nothing but birkies.  i tried to love them, but somehow […]

SWEATPANTS WITH CUFFS?

March 31, 2014

for years i’ve been looking for a nice pair of baggy sweatpants with cuffs–you know, the old-fashioned kind with a white cord at the waist, plenty of room in the rise, and cuffs or elastic at the ankles.  these disappeared from women’s retail….oh….in the nineties i suppose.  and i am simply too small to wear […]
