deja vu

Halló from the reflection on my laptop screen...
It's 2 am and I'm trying to get a good chunk of work done before hitting the road this week. The past days have been a busy cycle of early mornings, steamy afternoons, and late nights. I'm very happy to be escaping from Toronto in a few sleeps, and will try to be a good blogeuse as soon as I find internet access. If you're going offline or away for the long weekend, have a lovely time. A bientôt!

PS. Stopped into a shoe outlet on my way to lunch today, and fell in love with a pair of motorcycle boots. When I turned them over to see the sale price, I discovered that they were called the "Adelinda" style (no joke), and that this last pair happened to be a rare, perfectly fitting 41. Is there such a thing as shopping fate? I think so. Occasionally at least.

Adeleine, you look like you are ready for a delightful ménage trios, you, travel, sleep.

I believe in shopping fate! Too bad it doesn't seem to apply to me when things go on sale (i.e. when I would actually buy things) :(

And have fun on your next trip - is it New York this time?

Amanda said...

Lucky girl. Shopping fate is rarely kind to me.

Love the blog, by the way.

schizotres said...

cool! so did you buy them?

jennine said...

oh dear, there is no such thing is a coincidence, but there is such a thing as rationalization. either way, if you love them, and you can buy them, they are indeed fated to be yours.

my best friend has motocycle boots, she looks awesome in them!

geraldine: They are not fantastic ones, but they will tide me over :) I'm always on the lookout for motorcycle boots too.

henna: Out-of-stock aldo. Not exactly Ann Demeulemeester, but they'll do for now :)

j: I think you mean "ménage à trois". Sleep and travel are indeed very welcome.

Incidentally, I cannot respond to your messages.

la chipie: I'll take some soon.

mrs. fashion: I suppose! It doesn't happen very often, but I enjoyed it.

clare: Aw, I know. My size is always gone in sales.

amanda: Thank you.

schizotres: oui!

jennine: No, I don't think it's coincidence, but I'm quite good at not rationalizing. I'm on too tight a budget for that :)

What? said...

Yep I similar had shopping fate with a pair of boots about 10 years ago. half price and in my common size.

It hasn't happened since, so I hope it was not a once in a lifetime event!

Yes, shopping fate is what makes the world go round -- or at least my wardrobe...
