La Modette first met Carolin here at Le Pichet, where we toasted writing and Fabulous Shoe Monday, a sartorial holiday she'd created. (And in this case, a fabulous blouse from Spain as well.) Who better then, to join the re-birth of Seattle à La Mode after a year hiatus?
So Carolin pulled out another pair of stunners, these vintage alligator shoes. They look just like the Ferragamo pumps that Marilyn Monroe made famous.
Carolin gained her own fame as the proprieter of Harvest Vine, one of the city's sexiest and most delicious spots. Her current passion project is an organization to bring together growers, harvesters, chefs and teachers to share the region's bounty of food with everyone.
And La Modette is certain she'll be wearing great shoes every step of the way.
