I know a lot of us feel overwhelmed by the astonishing number of incredible ideas and images and thoughts we read or see in a day. I often find myself absently scrolling through my blog feed, just to see the number in bold go down -- and then I think about how funny it is that I can look at all these beautiful things and not even really notice them. I do absorb them, though, in some way. They seep into my subconscious and I dream about them.
The other day two "blog things" converged, with very nice results. First, an image of The Cherry Blossom Girl's Chloe shoes popped into my head, although I remembered them as having two straps. I became overwhelmed with the desire to find a pair of double strap heels, but I had no luck in my quick searches (if I had tiny feets I would consider these slingbacks from allencompanyinc). Then this desire became a desire to go thrifting, and I started thinking about Queen Michelle's "The Calling," which is such an appropriate term. I had a little chuckle to myself. Geoff and I headed out to one of our favourite shops that evening, et voilà:
Certainly nowhere near as beautiful as the Chloes, but they'll do for me, especially since they were $7. Thanks, blogs!
