Isn't that the phrase they would use, back in the days when women were dames?
These shoes - and sorry, I don't know who made them, does anyone else? - would be ideal for a party, no matter what the length of one's legs. I noticed that's an issue this season: a lot of women know their body type quiet well, and understand that certain footwear - booties, for example - tend to cut or shorten already short legs. I feel this would work with any length leg, what do you think?
I also like that mary-jane-with-a-heel, and black tights, randomly stuck in the shot: that's more me.
Just thinking ahead... Christmas parties... speaking of which, the lights are up @ Fortnum & Mason, already! Is it me, or is this all starting waaaaay too soon? Still, it's so nice & Dickensian.
