We had formal dinners (my father did work with foreign governments) when I was a kid, so I was taught and expected to do this. I'm hardly OCD about any of this stuff, as anyone who knows me irl know, but these are good "life skills".
In random fashion thoughts - I am, after 2 weeks, going to get my Jeanshop bag. Great customer service from Mr. Porter after a series of huge fuckups on their end, and I have a $105 credit right now. What to do with it? Nothing on the site I particular want/like right now. Which that their shoes and accessories selections were stronger.
I am looking for a pair of chukkas or chukka sneakers for the summer. They are a perfect height, especially for travel. They slip on and off easily at airport security, and they are just high enough that nearly all pants and jeans, no matter the hem length break well on them. Also, they have a less abrupt silhouette than low tops, but give much more breathing room and comfort than high tops.
