So the bad news is that in the middle of this photoshoot, my camera died on me.  It literally just shut off and refuses to turn on anymore.  The good news is that I have a warranty… and I almost never buy warranties.  It’ll be a few weeks before it’s fixed, so I’ll have to figure out an alternative solution for taking photos in the mean time.

Now onto the shoes…

Aren’t they spectacular?!  They were the first thing my eyes were drawn to when I first saw the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M collection.  The transparent lucite heel is beyond cool, but the shoes do have one little flaw (at least for an introvert like me).  The flaw is that they are such conversation starters!  Seriously, I got stopped repeatedly by people asking me about them.  That took me by surprise as I’ve seen some pretty outrageous getups in New York City, and people rarely even bat an eye.

This past weekend, I did something I haven’t done in far too long… took a lovely stroll through Central Park.  We timed it perfectly to hear the Delacorte Musical Clock strike.  I even managed to sneak in a one of my all-time-favorite street vendor treats: roasted candied almonds.  YUM!
