The Cream Cap-toes

I’m counting on these cream laceless cap-toes to be my go-to shoes for the next season or so. I needed a pair to replace my vintage black lace-ups with holes growing on the soles, and I thought these Margielas would add a subtle, neutral, yet unexpected touch to my wardrobe of dark non-colors.

I had already worn them out last weekend on the damp, salt-covered sidewalks of Manhattan, and the scuffs and stains are evident. I’m not worried at all; others would say they’re starting to show wear and tear, I say they’re starting to show character.

You ask if I plan to wear these with my very recently purchased briefcase of the same shade, and I say, “Most certainly!” To tell you the truth, I’m quite tired of that carefully calculated mismatched look; so much thought and effort goes into orchestrating this seemingly unintentional nonchalance that it ends up looking contrived. Matchy-matchy is fresh again, it’s easy, and it makes me feel like all is right with the world.

    Oooh they are soo pretty! Love the Margiela signature stitch in the back and totally with you on the character giving aspect of scuffs'n'dirt! Miss you down in NY!

    I don't care what anybody says, I've always had a love for matchy-matcy. Beautiful shoes. The shoe covers remind me of the covers doctors put on their shoes, I think it would make sense with the Margiela aesthetic since don't they wear white lab coats in their showroom/shops?

    Just wondering … when did you you start to dress in more subdued hues? I just noticed that you haven't been wearing that much color.

    P.S. I miss seeing that Margiela nail ring.

    Jacob: Haha, an astute observation! I guess I could attribute it to spending a summer in New York and the onset of quarter life. And yes, I forgot about that ring!
