Margot

We just got a great email from Vicki about wearing these shoes in Rome, so I thought I'd share it with yout -- Margot

Vicki writes: Loved your blog entry, Destiny---and you two are the greatest! (on two continents, now...) Wore my spats (with black wool pants and jacket and magenta top) to the Palazzo Scuderie in Rome for an invitation-only Reception and Opening of the Jordanian archaeological exhibit.

About 100 members of the Italian press were there, exquisitely turned out of course, including one gal in jeans and exotic cowboy boots who loved my shoes. No contest--it was, you could say, "a walkaway."

As a reminder to your readers and fans: The materials and paints you use, besides being gorgeous, really hold up. My shoes still looked brilliant upon my return, after tromping through 20 archaeological
sites, umpteen museums, and a gazillion rocky, dusty, up-and-down ruins that I explored.

Abundance of thanks,
Your tired but exhilarated author-vagabond
friend Vicki

WHY "GLITTER SWEATSHOP"?
As you might know, we invented a glitter glaze that works on leather, manmade leather and fabric. It comes with a bottle of paint base and a little packet of glitter. Now, someone has to open the big jars of glitter that come from the glitter elves and spoon just the right amount of each of the 21 colors into their packets. Being the head honcho, Margot is that someone. Problem is, she's not the tidiest person in the Western hemisphere and after 20 or so packets, there are a lot of microscopic (but fetchingly sparkly) particles of glitter in her hair, on her cheeks, and decorating her nose. One day someone came in during this process and remarked, "This place looks like a glitter sweatshop!"
