Dear Seraphic Secret:
It’s true, we are depressed that Obama won the election. We are also angry that the Second Amendment is under attack by the commies who now run the U. S. government. But we still love shoes. So what gives, Robert? Is Karen walking around in flip-flops? Come on. Get over it. And bring back Friday Footwear!
Seeking Solace in Shoes
Seraphic Secret believes that fashion is more than a frivolous pursuit for the rich and idle.
Everyone wants to look good. Everyone dresses and primps in order to create an attractive shell. The image we present to the public is an idea of self: glamour babe, rock star, chaste girl, sports guy, yeshiva student, disaffected youth, businessman.
When a sloppily dressed person insists they don’t want to be judged by their appearance but by their inner selves, we can only shake our heads in despair and explain in our most patient Montessori tone that surface reflects the soul.
Accessories play a vital role in a woman’s arsenal of glamour. And excluding footwear, handbags are, no doubt, a woman’s most cherished accessory. It’s not only an item of style but a utilitarian object. Within their bags women haul most everything that is indispensable to their every day lives.
Here are a few of the latest bags, purses and clutches that caught our eye.
