We’re in the final hours of Jamzilla (the partial closure of the infamous 405 freeway for expansion), a follow-up to the 2012 Carmageddon, and I’m sitting in traffic, wondering why of all days I have to be on the 405 today. But that’s the reality of living in LA. For every perfect sunny day in southern Cal we pay its price by sitting under the clear, blue skies in our cars hours at a time to get anywhere. To make the most of a long drive, I plan out the week in my head then tell Siri to jot those thoughts out on my phone. And then I thought about this last look here.
I’ve been scratching my head about how to close out this series. What concoction could I possibly whip up from my closet to do real justice to the fabulous Hermès croc?
First, I thought, maybe an all-American look with jeans, crisp shirt, and some sneakers to let the bag do all the talking?
Or maybe a more equestrian ensemble as a tribute to this house of sellier?
And then I realized I should just close the series as I opened it, with a Chanel dress that needs very little editing. When simple is done the Chanel way, I don’t need to complicate things. Will anyone notice what I’m wearing anyway when they see this bag coming?
Croc K32/Look 6: 10P Chanel dress and black YSL slingbacks.
This dress is from one of my favorite seasons Karl ever created. In hindsight I wish I had bought more from this past season and less from the future ones.
Thanks for indulging my croc K32 obsession with these six looks. But yes, I do know it’s an inanimate object, even if she may think otherwise…
