Two of my favorite things to wear are kimonos (and robes) and ankle boots. I just got this amazing 1970s creme silk robe from Spanish Moss and I still love these Margiela blue suede ankle boots as much as the day I got them. I love textures. Texture was my first word after all. (I promise, ask my parents). Needless to say texture has always been important to me. Silks, velvets, crisp Irish linen, suede, worn in cotton t-shirts, patent leather...I could go on. I was so excited to get these vintage Christian Lacroix earrings for Christmas. For someone who wears a lot of black a lot of people probably assume I don't like color. But I actually love color. Diana Vreeland said that 'water is natures tranquilizer' and I agree. This is perhaps why I'm so drawn to the color blue.  The blue of these Lacroix earrings is amazing, almost hypnotic. I also feel a little bit like Eddy & Patsy when I wear Lacroix.
