For those of you wondering how two raincoats, a bunch of books, and some makeup = 1.5 suitcases, it is because I packed these in their original boxes (click on photos for more info):
Comfortable and conservative, with a leather lining, for days when Francesca is on her feet for hours. These shoes will last forever.
Francesca does not usually wear such a precipitous heel, but for these she will suffer a little.
Another every-day shoe, so cute for next summer’s weekends — and currently on deep discount at Bluefly.
Also Francesca can tell you that if you need low-heeled, gold sandals –as Francesca did, to go with an outfit for a meeting with an editor at a Very Glossy Magazine — do not bother looking. Francesca searched all of Manhattan and she bought the last pair. Maybe next year.
Francesca is so happy!
