Got an email from Jules... it went like this:
So do you ever read Martha Stewart's blog? It's hilarious. Not intentionally, but it's really funny all the same. She takes, like, 9,000 detailed pictures and in every post title asks for comments...
Anyway, I saw this and thought of you for the gardens (she's in central park). I still wasn't going to send it to you, but when I saw what she has her "wardrobe mistress" do to her "Laboutins," I laughed out loud and couldn't resist sending you the link. It's near the beginning.
WTF? She's insane!
This is like back in the richie-rich pre-dot-com-bust days when I read about someone who had a hollow gold bracelet with fancy-ass diamonds INSIDE. That's just conspicuous inconspicuous consumption, right? I'm so rich, I hide my diamonds in my noisy rattle bracelet! I am so rich, I will take a poop on my Louboutins!
I think you have just written tomorrow's post. I owe you, Jules.
From Martha's blog: "Karena, my wardrobe mistress, painting the soles of my Laboutins* black - I am not a fan of the signature red soles and always change the red to black - this is easy if you use a broad sharpie."

*Spell check Martha.... spell check.
