My Brush with Fashion Fame

 (photo by Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist)
Barbara and I went to NYC this year for a trade show.  The show didn't go as well as we had hoped, but the vacation was a smashing success.

I take that back.  It was not a complete success.  One of my dreams for the trip did not happen.  I dreamed that I would run into Scott Schuman (, and that he, seeing how fashionable I was, would take my photo to post on his street fashion blog.  It didn't happen. I missed my opportunity for fame and fashion approval.

Not all is lost, however.  While in NYC, I scored a pair of really, really cute Steven by Steve Madden oxford shoes.  Recently Scott photographed a woman in the NYC streets wearing the very same shoes.  Maybe that is as close as I'll get to being on the Sartorialist myself.  But I will count it as having fashion approval.

My new shoes

Yes, I am actually using this broom.  Not as rare as me with a vacuum (thank you, Becky C.).  My family often believes this is my method of transportation.

those shoes remind me of my favorite shoes ever(not that that's an endorsement :). now, granted, it was the 80s and they were teal, but other than that, they looked very similar! I was so depressed when they wore completely out. I love yours.

I love the way you accesorised (sp?) the shoes with the broom. Smashing!

Can you believe I was not even "posing" for the shoe shot? I was actually sweeping the sidewalk! Uncharacteristic, don't you think?
