The Blouse Tent & Other Stories

The Tent: I loved these ($89) on the hanger at Zara, but....

Oy, that's a lot of shirt. Perhaps I'm just too tall/big for this look. Do petites look adorable in these?

This one's better ($79), right? Maybe? And the back is lovely; I tried rather unsuccessfully to shoot it.

Fashion Therapy: The hip therapeutic shoe. When the husband's knee began hurting, he panicked with an atypical hypochondriac moment (I'm usually the hypochondriac), freaked me out with fears of BONE CANCER, then luckily read this article in New York Magazine. So last Friday I go to Foot Locker on 34th Street and get him a pair of these:

As close to barefoot as you can get, the classic Converse All Stars ($44.99). In grey, not white, because anything new is promptly besmirched in his presence. I love them, he loves them, he immediately spilled beer on them (click on photo for beer stains) and after one weekend his knees are much better. A hipster miracle. Because seriously, I can't have him walking barefoot in the city.
