One day, while driving one of my friends to Bible Study, a conversation about cars came up. As this giant Hummer passed my 1999 Buick LeSabre, my car pooler commenced to tell me how she liked that make and model of vehicle. I immediately retorted that you couldn't pay me to purchase or drive one of those and then went on a tirade about how the Hummer is a totally masculine "boy toy" that resembles a refrigerator on wheels. When my pooler asked me why I felt so negatively about the Hummer, I quickly answered, "because it doesn't match any of my Italian shoes."
Please forgive me if that sounds just a little bit shallow (I'm really not, I just like what I like), but I am quite serious. I've been a Fa'shoe'nista for a very long time, since I was a youngun', and I believe in the total look.
So, while I look for substance just like the next person, style is a necessity as well. Men and women alike, consider their cars an accessory or representative of their lifestyle. Even those of us who go through the hooptie stage become attached to our less than glamorous acquisitions and try to keep them running for as long as we can.
Because I don't yet have a car, I'm always looking at them and ordering catalogs of luxury cars online. After careful consideration, my dream vehicle has been narrowed down to three two seater models: The Audi TT Roadster, the BMW Z4 Roadster, and the Jaguar XK series, all drop tops, of course.
I'm sorry, but I can't see my Manolo Blahnik, at the end of a very shapely leg no doubt, stepping out of a Hummer or some other such monstrosity. On the other hand, either one of the above choices would allow for a sophisticated and fashionably executed exit anywhere, at any time of the day and would accentuate any Shoe Maven's collection of fashionable footwear.
The Jaguar has always been a favorite of mine, so I'm featuring this magnificent machine along with some elegant footwear to round out my Wish List for this evening.
Enjoy, my Bellas!
