So naturally, I couldn't say no. I picked one up for myself and one as a gift for a pal in DC. I shipped his away and immediately went to work on mine. In about fifteen minutes, I had a custom tailored FP polo. I opted to go sleeveless with it, too, because of it being a men's cut and the shoulder break being too broad for my little lady body.
For those of you curious, my tailoring went a bit like this: I turned the shirt inside out, put it on, pinned it at the smallest point of my waist and where it hit in the armpits, took it off and fired up the sewing machine. Super simple and quick and now it fits me like a glove. I'm pretty sure I got more compliments from total strangers on this day than most. It just worked.
But now my desire for Fred Perry has only gotten stronger. Oh dear.
And then then Night Walks came. These are my fifth pair of Jeffrey Campbells and are, I'm assuming, going to be the ones I wear the most. I bought these to replace my Kimchi Blue mary jane platforms. While I love the KBs, I wear them all the time and they're starting to show it. I was able to get these Jeffrey Campbells for about forty dollars and figured I've give them a try. They're surprisingly really easy to walk in!
So, like I said. The past two weeks have been good to me. This weekend in Chicago is going to be great (Um, hello! Soul Night, yes please!) but I think it's supposed to be rather rainy. I get to meet a couple of little wiener dogs on Saturday and I couldn't be more excited! I'm sure that their cute mugs will end up on Instagram, so stay tuned.
And speaking of Instagram — if you're on Android and (yay!) finally get to join our party, feel free to follow me at @chaplinnn and say hello!
