Tread-ing Water; or, the Dolphin Wore Prada

In an earlier post I denounced, blasted, and condemned a “tread” sole as being simply “treadful.”

But perhaps the beautiful water I’ve been treading at Cavendish Beach has done something to my perspective, because I’ve been liking these shoes by Prada.

They’re casual and smart at the same time.

I’d wear them with this bag,


And I adore this little wrist pouch (both bags by Prada):




(I’ve actually made pouches [for gifts] just like this out of William Morris “Strawberry Thief” Liberty of London fabric. Must start making things for self.)

Fall feels a long way away from these red cliff beaches, but it’s beginning to percolate. . . Or is it just the coffee in my cottage?

I don't know which is more hilarious: "treadful" or "the dolphin wore Prada" Hahaha

I am in love with that bag - is that Prada as well?

Oh I found it on Neiman Marcus and now I will attempt to forget it thanks to the price tag - ouch!

Treads on a Mary Jane? Brilliant.

Wow, I think that those Mary Janes are adorable...Like a Cole Haan but edgier. And the bad is delicious. My office is across the street from the Prada store so I think that a little visit is in order...

Mighty J -- everything is Prada and I found these lovely things at Saks.

That sparkley bag makes me want to do flips and jump through hoops. I work for Prada bags and not fish.

I think the Mary Janes are fabulous with the right things: they have a nice mix of casual/smart/girly/tough to make them rather defy categorization.

The sparkly bag is pretty fab too.
