Uli’s shopping Tips


My friend Uli has been quiet on the blog lately.  Lucky her, visiting the family in Sweden.

But she has just sent though these amazing Pierre Hardy High Top Lace-Up Sneakers at Barneys and writes “They would look great with a wide pair of palazzo pants”.

Which is great if you are near a Barneys because they are $259, reduced from $650.

Which reminded me of these Nike high-tops that weren’t in my size in Hawaii.  And a tiny $85, not even on sale, in comparison.

High-tops for me though, are a ‘cute in theory’ shoe.  Love any supermodel wearing them with her cut-offs but on me, they just cut-me-off at the knees in a visual sense.  As well as piss-me-off in a literal sense, because they are just so hard to get on and off.  Which is why I think the skater shoe style is currently on high rotation in my wardrobe.

I think, there comes a point in your life where the comfort part of the style equation takes on a lot more meaning.  A bit like the dessert part of the dinner equation.  I wonder if the two are related?
