The laid back Cool

Yes, I saw it coming. I was warned (fashion signs!), I was alarmed, I was prepared. Or actually, I was so not prepared to be tip-toeing (still in heels) around this summer's hottest trend, the *deep sigh*: advanced flat (aka grown up and pimped orthopaedic shoe).

When Heidi Klum came up with her first edition of crystallized Birkenstocks back in the 90s I could still turn a blind eye hoping that the lapse of taste would be temporary. And certainly I tried not to be blinded (aka totally eye and heel insulted) when I spotted certain creatures sporting the persistent “Adilette”, which already found its way into fashion magazines last season. Brrrrrrrrrr!

But what to do when flatforms are praised from Elle to Vogue as the new cool and promoted so fashionably? *Deep sigh again*: you try of course, even though for a heelalista this means lowering standards quite literally. Tricked everybody though because far away from home (nobody knows me) and on a boat (no heels allowed) everybody just thought I was so “laid back”. Now you delete that picture of me in flats from your long-term memory forever. This never happened and will just stay between you and me, OK?

Am a "guilty as charged" fan of gossip and always keen on some girl chit-chat, so when I bumped into Mrs. X on the way home from the supermarket (her with a brand new Mulberry tucked under her arm, me with a bunch of vegetables, life is so unfair sometimes), I was - other than trying to cling on to my greens as if they were some precious Chanel - eager to hear her recent stories.

Was surprised to sense a rather negative vibe though, involving a lot of "s" and "c" words and they all had nothing to do with nice things like "sun" or "cute". Wondering where all the anger is coming from? (Note to self: over-expensive handbag as therapy to make you happy = urban legend).

Am tempted to prescribe a huge mix of other berries (aka Cosmopolitan) to wash down frustration. Also want to hand over TV guide (brand new baby, and utterly soothing literature, I promise, you will relax right away). Am bothered. Surely you can't be all miserable when the weather is beautiful enough to allow sunglasses and a bikini? Wonder if I shall donate my wedges (heel therapy always works) to her: they are not Mulberry, but butterflies always have this positive effect on people. Will generously accept her handbag in return.
