Meet my new favorite thing in my closet. I call this little number “The Caitlyn Jenner,” because that neckline forever belongs to Caitlyn, thanks to her Vanity Fair cover. I sported my Caitlyn during the first night of Swim Week, where she made it through the night, but my shoes—god bless them—made an unfortunate departure from wardrobe rotation that evening. It was somewhere around stop number 11 (oh, Swim Week) where, for whatever reason, shoe decided to call it a night. And by calling it a night, I mean literally falling apart while on my foot. I walked out of the Edition with one shoe on and one shoe swinging around my ankle like a monkey on a tree. But because it’s Swim Week and the adventures never end, I had to keep on keeping on—with a broken shoe. When I landed at Soho House, I asked myself what Macgyver would do, hit up the front desk for a few rubber bands and rigged that shoe back together. Talk about a fashion don’t. Gold sandals held together by three rubber bands. Keepin’ it classy. But hey, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

And then these booties from the Melissa shoes brunch at Soho House. What a work of art, right? Who knew you could do such delicious designs with rubber? The latest to come from the line is just as spectacular. I’m a long-time lover of Melissa.

Now that mine gold numbers are down and out, I’ll be looking into these beauts as upgrades. Sans rubber bands, of course.
