Nice lady stepping off the Judiciary Square Metro with me - "I love your purse! The color, the different pattern." The purse: Adrienne Vittadini Filene's Basement (15-minute downtown lunchtime shop about 3 years ago) orange and tan geometric stitching, orange leather strap.
Co-worker - "You always have the cutest shoes!" The shoes, old BCBG t-straps (literally falling apart - have to find a good cobbler - any suggestions?). Yesterday's were old dusty rose suede "sneaker" slingback heels.I always get compliments on all of these pieces. Thank you, ladies!
(I've got to get a digital camera so I can post pics of this stuff! Yup, you heard me, don't own one. We're so behind the times. No TIVO, either.)
