Whats In Your Bag!
Before the tightening of security, I used to carry-on my makeup and some toiletries. I mean a bottle of shampoo takes a fair wack out of the baggage poundage. Now these items must go in the checked baggage. This has reduced my clothes, shoes and handbag choices to practically nil. And don't even talk to me about books. I have had to give up the books altogether, only bringing one for reading during the journey. Thankfully we have a good library which I will be haunting regularly. My other book option, Amazon UK here I come!
I sat on the bedroom floor staring into my half empty bag deliberating on what else I could leave behind. Frustrated I came to the point where I was unwilling to make any further cuts to my wardrobe. I finally acknowledged the fact I must bring bag number two and pay the $50 dollar fee each way. Why, well because of my shoes. I have weddings and christenings to attend in a town where style is a way of life. There is no library type place for shoes. I need those shoes! They are the pinnacle of my outfits. An outfit is not complete without the shoes and bag carefully chosen to enhance it. Shoes are the fashion accessory I get creative with. The fashion accessory I will never be too old for. I would be a sorry sight in a mini mini skirt, belly shirt or torn jeans. The fashionesta in me is appeased by my shoes. Can you blame me? Look at them! Aren’t they just beautiful?
