So I have to tell you about my “outing” and how it led to the spotting of DVF!
This past Friday night, I was deceptively led through The Marketplace at Eden, a specialty food store, and told that this would be a place for our “outing.” I’m open to new things, so I was cool … like “whatever, don’t expect a second ‘outing’ if this grocery store-dinner doesn’t go right.” You know I had to say “yes,” right, to the setting?! Saying yes leads to the possible … Anywho!
Having injured my leg the day before, I wallowed through the store and was directed to a hallway with stairs which led to a mystery place that sat on the 2nd floor. And I thought: “This should be great for the throbbing pain I just told you about.” I smiled, grinned and went along with IT anyway as he leveled me by holding my hand and might I add attracting many onlookers … He was wide eye and grinning like a Cheshire. Having climbed two flights of stairs, I walked through mahogany double doors, and the Mediterranean opened up before my eyes. I found myself at Above of South Orange, NJ !
Fresh food and faces. We chatted immensely, making the server return 3x for our drink order and 4x for our dinner order. Besides, I’m very indecisive when ‘out’ and can never decide on what’s best to eat! (Hmm ..) He had the vegetarian dish. I had the sea scallops.
Just before dessert, we conversed with a neighboring table, two much older couples on a double date who insisted on the chocolate chip gelato for dessert! “Mmmm, mmmm, mmm,” they raved.
Still much in pain and pleased with a fabulous evening, I spotted the one thing that could bring this memory into recollection, a shoe association that could immediately recall these bountiful images and ‘breath of fresh air’–the DVF Avalon Ankle Boots. One of the ladies wore them with a black shirt, slim jeans, waist-length black, leather jacket and a cute cabbie hat, for it drizzled, rained, and drizzled all night long!
They, the neighboring couples, kept rambling on about their babysitter and her needs, but I, at that moment, continued to covet the leather, platform, polished-just-before-dinner DVF ankle boots she wore and stuffed myself with made-to-perfection pumpkin gelato set in crust topped with walnuts and drizzled caramel with a dollop of whip cream dessert!! Pheww … yes it was a lot to take in at once!
It was a cloying, delightful, spotting affair! Sighs* And there they are …
