Only my friend-cum-personal-shopper, Irene Kim, knows my plight this season when it comes to finding the quintessential black ankle bootie with a stacked heel, just shy of mid-calf length a la Daria Werbowy for Celine. Well, I originally found the perfect pair on the first try – except to my detriment they were polyester from Zara. Pretty from afar, but far from leather. Who in their right mind would spend $89 on polyester boots? Not me. Not ever.
Countless pairs later – and a single left boot in size 7 at Aldo (to whoever has the right boot, that Cinderella shit ain’t funny) – this morning I finally found a pair that are equal to the Zara pair in appearance and greater in quality. Following basic logic and the story of my life, they are greater in price, too. But I can’t stop picturing these with everything I own, specifically that pair of waxed denim black jeans that have yet to be purchased however exist in my subconscious wardrobe under the category: MUST-HAVE. I’ll shelve these boots in there, too.
Call me biased but couples who fashion together, stay together. These two lovebirds have been popping up at Fashion Weeks around the world as a dynamic duo. Veronika is a senior fashion editor at the online luxury boutique, My Theresa, where Justin O’Shea is a buying director. I really do wonder what their hook-up story is. Was it late night working on a Must-Have Fall Sweaters campaign? Or perhaps he brought her a nonfat latte to cheer her up after hearing Nicolas Ghesquière was leaving Balenciaga, which would mean they probably made a baby last week when the designer was rumoured a potential successor to Marc Jacobs as Creative Director of Louis Vuitton.

Well, well, well. I found my latest weakness: MyTheresa.com. You know what keeps me up at night other than Paranormal Activity movie trailers? I often toss and turn as my mind weaves impossible mathematical equations to permit me buying a $1,700 bag or a $600 pair of shoes. My version of A Beautiful Mind would be a Sarah-Jessica-Parker-size closet filled with beautiful designer pieces and me inside, doing snow angels atop Alexander McQueen silk skull scarves. Call me crazy!
On my latest visit (2 hours ago), I sniped jewel-toned must-haves that will for sure keep me up all night long. Their marketing team, I must say, is a tribe of geniuses. They update the site every Tuesday and Thursday making last week’s Missoni hat incomparable to this week’s Balenciaga Giant City bag – just in! If anyone out there knows of some fast money-making scheme, I’m down for anything – except for maybe a pyramid scam or importing/exporting. Please, PLEASE, let me get what I want on MyTheresa this time. Lord knows, it would be the first time.
Also on my list: A Very She & Him Christmas album.
