Flowers are in full bloom, grass is green, skin is exposed, it must be Spring, or something like it. Yes, okay, I’ll admit I’m not typing this outside, and I could give you a whole list of reasons why not, but the truth is I’m catching up on the latest episode of Ugly Betty.
So I am fully aware that some (probably most) of you who read this blog know me personally. But for those of you that have never met me, let me explain why I started sharing my feelings about shoes, fashion, and other shenanigans via the interwebs. I am an avid fan of Ugly Betty (TV show on ABC that is getting the cut much to my dismay). I want to BE Betty. Seriously, if you knew me you’d see it. Betty works at a fashion magazine, so I’m working at a fashion magazine. Betty has a blog, so I have a blog. Betty is Mexican, so I eat too much Mexican food for my own good.
So here I am, starting another paragraph with the word “so” trying to explain why it has been so long since I last wrote anything on this blog. I could tell you all about what I have been up to these past weeks. Ok, I’ve peaked your interest you little creeper? Here it goes. My life outside of the internet and this blog and high heeled shoes involves a lot of costume designing, a lot of graphic design, and a little bit of classwork here and there. The past few weeks have been particularly busy in Meryl-land. So I’m sorry for those of you who have gone into anaphylactic shock because of an empty void in your daily reading. I hope this makes up for lost time:
I wrote about a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti shoes several moths ago and I hated them. I think I said they were the love child of Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga, meaning that in the worst of ways. But, I feel differently about this Flower Sandal. I am a big fan of the flower and of the modern approach on a summer cliché. But come one, Giuseppe, buddy-boy, you could have stepped it up a few notches with the color.
Welcome back friends.
