A Rebuttal

Charlotte_cowles_

Hi folks, I'd like to address two articles that have printed some very wrong information about me recently. Texas Monthly did a story on me that was for the most part extremely flattering, but grossly exaggerated and highly stylized. NY Mag did a snarky and out-of-context synopsis of it yesterday, and I'd like to correct some of the misinformation out there. I cannot believe the figures they threw out. Not one of them is even a little bit close to true. I sure wish some of them were!

I get it. It's hard to get a story published and you have to dredge the bottom of the barrel to get a story...a  picture that is not indicative of my life in any way was painted. It is laughable. That is fine. I know who I am and everything described in the article is just not my world. Anyone who knows me knows that is not me.

Normally I wouldn't acknowledge something so silly, but this is all so bogus that I'd like to just call it for what it is.

There is a blatantly made up quote where I dismiss the notion of college. I'm fortunate to have created a job where I'm always on the learning curve and for the moment I'm glad to not be racking up college debt. It's not that I don't value education--college could very well be in my future.

Everything in Miss Cowle's article was all fine by me until she dragged my beautiful and sweet baby sister into this mess. It's demoralizing to have to defend my relationship with my family in a public forum, so I'm not even going to go there. That was below the belt. We love and adore her in a way words can never describe...I shouldn't even have to say that.

There's a reason I keep it short and sweet on Sea of Shoes. There is too much negativity out there. You can portray me as frivolous all day long but I'll take frivolous over nasty any day.  I hope you always think of my blog as a happy place for fashion and shoe lovers and I hope you know I value all of my readers. Thank you for your thoughtful insights and support.

This experience has taught me not to believe anything I read in print--talk about the tallest tale ever told!

LOTS OF LEATHER

 

 

This leather vest I'm wearing is one of my favorite things in the world. It's previous owner obviously loved it very much, it is extremely well-worn. The label on it says 'Dark Horse' which always kind of cracks me up.

Worn with crackle-leather pants by Notify, a Rugby striped blouse, an old Dolce & Gabanna purse from my sister, and Givenchy lace-up patent booties from fall 2007.

LE SMOKING

 

 

I love Prada for doing this smoking lips shoe. It's for girls who just don't care anymore...haha! Very disco. There is a black version available at Nordstrom and Saks that is amazing too!
