A Rose by Any Other Name

(Via Selfridges)

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.
