>> What is the world coming to when girls run around looking like an abominable snowman from the knee down? I saw one yesterday, wearing these shoes, and looking smug about it too. Too bad I had to burst my eardrums keeping the laughter in.

>> So in my search for the perfect cape, I came across this one. It's not the perfect one for me -- I want a black one, rather than charcoal. And I don't like how it has no collar, and something about the belted waist and the buttons and the cape all together makes the coat a little too busy, not as streamlined and elegant as it should be. And besides, why would I buy a coat that leaves your arms totally bare? I like the capes with the slits for arms in them much more. I guess I'll just have to keep looking...
>> I found some amazing granny boots on ebay, buy-it-now price of $16.99 and all. Too bad my feet are not Victorian-tiny. These boots are a size 6, so I would have to be all Cinderella step-sistery -- like when they stick their monstrously large feet into that tiny glass slipper -- if I were to try these on. But I thought I would give you all the heads up, I'm sure someone has lovely dainty feet out there.
>> Up, up, and aweeeeee! This balloon dress (or puffball or bubble or pouf or tulip or egg dress) has so much volume, you might have to tether yourself down to keep from getting whipped up in the wind. And the shape is most definitely reminiscent of that seen on the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter runway -- a shape that has had to grow on me. But it's all funky, and egg-shapey, and me likey.
