I've been told that I'm an "impractical person." This is false. It's just that, I usually concern myself with the practicality of appearances, admittedly sometimes to the exclusion of...other (less practical, ha) concerns. I guess it's all a matter of prioritizing values.
Remember the pair of day-glo glitter platforms I bought not too long ago? I finished a set of harnesses for them, the idea being: leather straps + shimmering silk stripes + sharp stilettos + cut steel.
HOWEVER. It's been raining (monsooning??) sideways here since yesterday morning, leaving me wishing that when I'd constructed these harnesses, I'd skipped the silk in favor of something sturdier and moderately more waterproof. More leather, perhaps? (More leather: never a bad thing.) While I find the contrast in texture of leather and silk satisfying, dancing in the rain without risking gross water marks is possibly more satisfying. At least the glitter filled stilettos are almost like galoshes in their plasticy indestructibility! (If you don't mind wet feet.)
