Tread Lightly, There are no Backs

Back when I was at Parsons, I took a class on 18th century French art, and damned be I if that wasn't the most luxurious experience I could have for an hour and a half in the morning after a baked good and a strong cup of tea. And God bless the French, they've given us all the sinful things in life (ask Benjamin Franklin, because that is totally possible), including almost all the shit that can make us feel both guilt and exquisite self-induced euphoria (y'know, jacquard, cannelés, champagne, oxygen, etc). I only bring this up because these shoes remind me of Ottoman-inspired slippers that ladies used to wear back in Versailles and such; The French aristocracy really "dug" the whole Ottoman thing. I forget exactly how that moved on to the whole "farm life" schpiel aside from Marie Antoinette just being a teenager and Austrian, but I'll probably end up doing a rant about that on Twitter at some point. 

Anyway, they're good shoes, good job, Weiland & Tsubo folk.

Losta colors too! My hair is brighter than ever and I keep wearing a bunch of colors, which I told myself I wouldn't do, but oh well, cannot be tamed, I suppose. Claire Geist here, hear me roar.
