I was off to Shabbat (Sabbath) dinner on Friday night and, yup, none of my classy and god-appropriate black ballet flats fit anymore. No choice but to wear sneakers with my dress. So I am basically a female Jerry Seinfeld. Silver lining: at least he is Jewish.
- The sneakers are Gucci. Love. Love. Love. - These are actually super comfortable. Low at the back so no rubbing on my heel or ankle. Interlocking Gs all over the white leather are subtle. Navy blue and red stripe on the side is fresh. Not much arch support as they are really flat, but surprisingly I find I can walk really far in these without my feet hurting.
- Black tights + white sneakers never look great. BUT my legs were warm and on our walk to dinner we went past the Beatles Abbey Road crosswalk and saw all these tourists taking photos and holding up traffic and being obnoxious and I instantly felt much better about myself. - I literally have flat feet because of being pregnant. It’s vile. - Baby and I had a disagreement about whether I was able to bend down to tie my laces. I said yes. She said no. I won (this time).
- I had to go to the U.K. Border Agency premium centre on Friday morning in East Croydon to get a new visa. What a palaver. I kept my morale up by imagining Meghan Markle having to wait in the same line for her visa. No special treatment from UKBA for royals (https://m.huffingtonpost.co.uk/amp/entry/meghan-markles-visa-application_uk_5a1eefbfe4b039242f8c80f2/) Also, the baby has wrapped herself around my bladder and gives it a little squeeze once in a while, so I have about 10 bathroom near miss emergencies a day. I now can’t face being outside of 20m from a toilet. Or a portaloo. Or a long drop. Or a bush. Whatever. I am not picky. .
“No soup for you!” This is THE Soup Nazi’s home. When I worked at Ralph Lauren, we flipped when we discovered this place. There was nothing like it. He was JUST LIKE they portrayed him in #Seinfeld But we discovered him before Seinfeld. I swear. Right @ebk200 ? #soupnazi#memories#classicnyc
