Longing for spring, dressing for winter

It's still very much winter in Paris and, eager as I am to wear them, I can't go out with these sandals, which were designed by shoe artiste Pierre Hardy for The Gap... Shoe blogger Miss Glitzy and I had fun checking out the collection together on the Champs-Elysées; it includes chunky wedges and lots of perfect flat sandals.

It's so cold here that every day I wear my scarf and gloves from Manos de Uruguay, a great brand I talked about in a recent post. Their beautiful knits are handmade by a network of women around Uruguay; each piece is unique - every item's tag includes the name of the person who made it!

They fit you pretty well and be patient. Spring will come eventually. I love the scarf and gloves, they are beautiful. I must read your post about Manos de Uruguay and thanks for the link.

I like those sandals...I was just at the Gap today, but didn't see anything like that there...and I love the chunky scarf and gloves. I hope you don't have to wear them too much longer though :)

OMG those silver shoes are great I absolutely adore them and will buy a pair if I find something similar.
Sad that it's still cold over there, it's warmed up so nicely the last week or so here, 23 degrees!

JILL - from what I understand, the Pierre Hardy line sold out in no time, especially these sandals; last time I checked they weren't available online anymore either...

those gloves are just perfect. i love the pattern and black/white color combo. at least when cold you can be stylish and show off bootie from your travels!

Oh, those sandals are SOOO beautiful!

It's cloudy, rainy at times, here, but I hope we can spare using gloves and scarves for quite a while!

I had hoped to find those sandals online a few weeks but I suspect they sold out in a click that was heard around the world. They're lovely!

The scarf and gloves look lovely...

I bet winter is tolerable and could be nice if you have such lovely things to wear.

Wear the sandals inside the house even for a few minutes... at least that's what I would do if I have those.
