I like the aesthetic of spectator pumps: white, black, perforations.
As promised, I am showing you old clothes and accessories.
You saw this dress last summer. The necklace was a gift from The Photographer.
Are you wondering when I will show you a spectator pump?
Surely you know me well enough to know that I don’t wear pumps. And also that I fear looking like an extra who has escaped rehearsals for Anything Goes.
I am the spectator pump: white, black, perforations.
This is a visual metaphor. I am not actually a pump.
The necklace is the heel cap. (This metaphorical pump is a very high heel.) Come closer and take a look.
When The Photographer travels, he often brings back a little giftie for me. He found this necklace in the gift shop at MOMA. It piqued his interest because of the manufacturing process: it’s 3-D printed. He thought it would appeal to my taste because it’s asymmetrical, plastic, and a little futuristic. Ah, to be understood!
Well done, Photographer.
I will direct all of you to the design studio’s website — N-E-R-V-O-U-S — where there are additional pieces, some of which are even more elaborate and compelling (though priced accordingly) than my necklace.
Now on to the toe cap of the metaphorical pump: my shoes.
These have been sitting in my closet for years. I’ve never been able to decide if they are too heavy for summer wear. I’ve made up my mind: They’re fine.
These shoes are higher than my typical platform sandals. I nearly fell down only once while taking these pictures. That’s not bad for our first trip out of the house.
To finish off today’s musings, the futuristic necklace is paired with a different neckline and color just to see.
Don’t be alarmed! This sundress is solely for evening and weekend wear — no working with those strappy straps.
Have a fantastic weekend!
