“Walking on high heels, soaking up life”

Round and About

Have often wondered what it is that makes round shapes so magical. The perfect illusion of soft infinity perhaps (think boobs in a wonderbra or the beauty of everything with a Chanel logo: pure pleasure right?), or that dots always seem to make people happy (oh,oh, the Yayoi Kusama Polka dot collection of Louis Vuitton- definitely!)

Yes, the plate at a restaurant waiting to be topped with delicate food (round belly!), the sweet little bubbles in champagne, a glittery sequin: very (!) instant happiness. Even in wording "rounds" are fun. Surely it can't be a coincidence that one says: "am having a ball"? And in Austria we even literally say: "Ich fühl mich nicht rund" to express being out of balance. So to spice up a daily outfit with dots (my fave: the fur and the leather versions....) totally makes sense on such a bright, autumn day.

Just don't forget the most important dot on the "i" (aka accessory): a smile.
The most perfect round shape there is.
