( mistakes ) were made
I bought a pair of leather dieppa restrepo's, failing to heed the wise warning of a friend that the color might not be what I was looking for. initially described as 'light gray,' they're more of a taupe/sage. really pretty, & a great shoe on most. for whatever reason, my brain rejected them.
it seems necessary to admit this mistake publicly; its not a small one. but, there's a way to move on. I worked out a nice trade with julia, who supplied me with a beautiful whiskey brown leather clutch. I've been using it everyday since it arrived
as for the shoes, I actually did need a pair. lots of walking around the city. so I got the ones pictured here- a true pale gray, and I imagine the patent will work well in the rain. my excitement for them is subdued by the circuitous consumerism route which led me to them, but I think they'll be just right
