Ann Demeulemeester Point Pumps
I don’t wear high heels and stilettos as much as I used to; the allure of sneakers, derbies and ankle boots with squat stacked heels has eclipsed the sophistication of an elegant heel thanks to their perceived discomfort. Sitting at a desk all day invites the notion one could wear heels without much trouble; many of the girls here in the office do – but the idea of dragging around a second set of shoes for the walk between public transport and the office – or worse; actually walking back and forth in them – is far too stressful.
These Ann pumps though, with their buttery soft leather, make the 9cm stiletto heel seem somehow modest. There’s something about the arch, they curve differently to other heels. They seem… supple – as though I could walk in them for days without burn or blister.
Of course, they would still burn a little hole in my wallet, even if they didn’t burn the balls of my feet. One for the wishlist.

Another phone snap taken by Edit Evening this morning after breakfast at the new paleo eatery in Richmond, Patch Cafe. Edit Evening and I have both been following the paleo diet so far this year, although he’s stricter than I am – I still have some dairy and occasionally submit to my sugar cravings.
The light was so beautiful filtering in through the trees! Not a very good picture for outfit details unfortunately, but I was happy to saunter around in my lovely new derbies that I got for a steal, BNIB on eBay recently.
I am pleased to announce that – in conjunction with fine Melbourne-based jewellers Julia DeVille and Redivivo – my work will be presented May 5th-15th at Fallow in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, as part of the VIRTUALLY YOURS exhibition.

Edit Evening snapped some pictures of this outfit for me on my phone whilst walking to lunch on Saturday. We’re trying to do this more often since I’m hardly ever home, figuring phone photos are better than no photos.
It was dry but windy out, the perfect weather for a padded jacket but bare legs under my dress. This dress and my Assin dress pictured a few posts back are on constant rotation in my wardrobe at the moment – my only complaint with this one is that as it is linen it creases easily and then I feel unkempt. Since acquiring a garment steamer ($49 from K-Mart – if you don’t have one seriously run, don’t walk) I can’t imagine a life wearing creased or wrinkled garments. It’s one of the best investments I’ve made for my wardrobe and at such a minor cost.
