Spring Candie’s

As the weather gets warmer, I stop wearing socks and start thinking about cute open-toed shoes.

imageBut I was really taken by this little Candie’s(r) Short Trench Coat.

I’m not sure if I could carry off the yellow (they call it Banana Yellow), but I like the fact that it’s cotton and machine washable.

It’s marked down from $58 to $37.70. (It says imported, but doesn’t say where it’s imported from.)

I’d have to take a look at it in person to see if it was really as soft and comfy as I’d hope it to be.

I do know that I don’t like the new shorts they’re showing. (That everyone is showing.) Either make them capris or make them shorts, it’s not some sort of fashion innovation to split the difference.


Yeah, there is no way I could pull that outfit off. (Come to think of it, nor would I want to.)


Now, this, this is more my style. The shoes are even on sale.

UPDATE 6:00 PM: Yes, it was an April Fool’s joke. It was all my brother’s idea. (You can see how it looked here.)

The regular edible candy reviews will resume tomorrow.
