A Rose by Any Other Name
If something has the same name as you do you think you are obliged to buy it?
And if that thing is ugly, as I think these "Lucinda" shoes are, do you think you are within your rights to be a bit put out that the thing with your name isn't just a bit more, well, fabulous?
I don't feel fairly represented by a depressed little blue suede moccassin.
And certainly not by an even sadder little brown moccassin.
I think Lucinda should be towering and impractical, brightly coloured and attention grabbing. Not sensible. God, anything but sensible.
