My Favorite Things (shoe edition)
I was given a pair of Yves Saint Laurent shoes years ago by a friend and she told me that if she saw them on ebay or in a re-sale store that she would never speak to me again. I knew that they were special and I knew I didn't want to risk the wrath of this girl, but I am so glad that I didn't sell them. After I went to the YSL retrospective in Montreal, I gained a whole new appreciation for the art and rarity of YSL. We see YSL logos on everything these days, but pretty much all of those things are just souvenirs of the great legacy of a designer (and not just YSL, all the greats). If you are lucky enough to have a piece of YSL clothing or shoes, count yourself lucky and hold on to it.
