After the Charlotte Ronson show last week, we ducked into Old Navy to get out of the freezing, sideways rain. Of course we couldn't actually enter and leave a store without purchasing something - even if in a not-so-exciting place like Old Navy. We bought the shoes at left and we've worn them almost everyday since. In fact, yesterday's grouchiness re: the "where did you get that question" probably arose from being stopped every five seconds to explain that yes, our shoes really are from Old Navy. We've worn them with tights, with socks, with dresses and with jeans. We're very klutzy and have yet to fall in them. And despite their heft, they're actually very comfortable (for those of you of the cheap-shoes-are-impossible-to-walk-in persuasion). They'll probably be sold out before the first warm day; maybe we should buy another pair?
Why Denim Companies are All About Da Booty
"Question: What is that everybody has and pirates and thieves try to take?" A Tribe Called Quest knew the answer was "Da Booty." Denim companies get it too. (Of course Nelly was ahead of the game with his Apple Bottom Jeans.) Just last week Old Navy launched their "Booty Reader" to give shoppers the chance to find the jeans to best fit their booty's lifestyle. (My booty-reading experience didn't go so smoothly but I'm talking with Old Navy and we're working it out). Yesterday WWD reported that Levi's is launching a line of jeans called "Curve ID" which will utilize new technology to fit jeans based on a woman's shape (read: ass) versus their waist size. Their tag line? "All asses are not created equal."
