| timely/timeless | some like it hot to a fever pitch

(ferragamo slides, $360; mulberry neely bag, about $1016)

with the exception of a few artfully mussed coifs and some decidedly vixenish eye makeup, a lot of september issue editorials are looking as if they were ripped straight out of a magazine published at the height of the nifty fifties.

considering that my first true style icon was none other than the inimitable audrey hepburn, i'm particularly eager to try on something ladylike this fall (that, and the fact that i could never fully get behind the whole bodycon-bedazzled-with-a-dash-o'-hooker-heel wave we've been riding for the past few seasons, courtesy of balmain).

i'll probably be going for more slim-cut pedal pushers than wasp waist full skirts, but i have to watch myself when it comes to accessories. i can't walk properly in spindly stilettos to save my life, but i'm a firm believer that kitten heels are for people in their fifties. i happen to have some lacy black kitten heels that i bust out on days when i'm feeling a bit grande damesque (it happens), but i'm pretty sure that they'll be my one and only pair. after all, they were originally purchased to be worn at a funeral, which says a lot.

on the other hand, i'd happily fork over more money than i should for a piece that will last me into my fifties, like this mulberry neely bag. pure perfection, no matter what the trend forecast says.

i'll start saving up.

Hmm. I don't understand kitten heels. They just make people look like they're squatting, even if their legs are straight. I don't know what it is.

But that back is simply beautiful, good luck on the funds
