Ev & The City – Charleston Edition

I am pretty much ready to run away to the South!
After a few days, I have fallen deeply in love with Charleston.

The food (yes I tried grits, and no they are not for me!), the cute buildings running along cobblestone streets, the history, markets, horse drawn carriages…
Added to this, it was perfect warm weather every day.
Ohhh so dreamy – leaving me in a pastel frame of mind.

Tea Party at The Plaza

You had me at high-tea, but make it at The Plaza with some lovely ladies and I am there in a heartbeat.

The place is luscious. From the flowers that greet you just past the main entrance, to the decadent decor beyond.
LOVE.

Who can forget the Carrie and Big conversation outside his engagement party “Your girl is lovely, Hubbel”, to the real life wedding of celebrities such as Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
There are many reason why even the “worst” room (broom closet) costs half a monthly mortgage repayment and the wait-list for a Saturday summer wedding is longer than fifth avenue!

A delightful afternoon spent in opulent New York fashion…

P.S Calorie’s don’t count on your birthday weekend -right??!!??

Planes, trains and Jimmy Choo’s

My four-foot-nothing height has lead me to constantly seek that extra few inches.
So I live in heels. I can walk, jog, run, climb, cook, clean – you name it, and I could do it in heels.

Now there is a difference between being able to do something in heels – and wanting to.
I don’t particularly want to travel in them. I certainly do not, I repeat DO NOT, want to wear my precious heel on the NYC subway.

Pretty shoes, such pretty shoes, in the smelly, dirty subway. NO NO NO NO NO.
Shoes are like a work of art to me. I cannot and will not walk around carelessly destroying their delicate designs, scratching my favourite red soles.
I mean I did on occasion. Believe me I was not happy about it. I needed a solution to keep me sane on my daily subway ride to and from work.

If I was to be caught wearing flats, they better be pretty. Seriously.
Jimmy Choo flats – enter stage left. Gorgeous, comfortable and practical for the subway.

They have however had their time and I have literally worn them to death.

Ripped backs, lost JC plate, lost flower on one….
Goodbye to my Choo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obviously the proof of subway dangers lies in my unwearable Choo’s. But what now? Which shoe can replace my travel companion?
So some new choices need to be made.
