Went to the Guggenheim on Sunday to see the Louise Bourgeois. Great show. The Guggenheim always delivers. Then my husband complained about the ugly tourists and the heat all the way down to Bryant Park. Yeah, for 47 blocks. Just as I was about to google cheap divorce lawyers on my iPhone we stepped into the oasis that is Kinokuniya Books, the awesomely rad Japanese bookstore that overlooks Bryant Park. We had mocha and green tea frappes and all our woes were put on deep freeze.

Remember these from when we were little? I think my sister Annette used to wear these in the early 80's. Well I've been thinking about these a lot lately and was going to try to hunt some down on eBay. I was walking around in my fabulous new a.p.c. jumpsuit that coincidentally looks like something I would have found at a Dead show in college thinking I really needed some of those Bass sandals to go with it. My blue sandals were not cutting it. So I decided to go check Shoe Market in Williamsburg which always has exactly what I'm looking for. They had them, and they were buy one get one half off. So I got both these babies for just $65! The guy there said that Bass went out of business and just came back a couple of years ago. Yeah! They are so comfy too.

So I basically spent my rent at a.p.c. this past weekend. But I got lots of good stuff. I adore this French label but unfortunately it's not really meant for people with my um, body type. But I did get a few good pieces for the rest of summer and into the fall. And they were having a great sale so must of the stuff was half off. Can't wait to wear the trenchcoat and sunglasses in Paris this September! Au Revoir!
