Mrscove wears Arche shoes these days. High heels are history. Years ago I used to get her Bruno Magli matching shoes and handbags.

I remember buying my first pair of Arche shoes in NYC after being 'talked into them' by the sales assistant who said they would 'change my life'. How right he was. 8 years later, I hardly wear anything else than Arche, and I love them. I do have other shoes in my wardrobe, but my first choice is always Arche. I still thank that sales assistant for his advice :)

I have 5 pairs of Arche boots. Very rarely wear any other footwear in winter. Two of these pairs, ankle high brown and high heel black are worn less frequently than others but have lasted 10+ years.
My absolute favourite and MOST comfortable are the bright blue ones from two years ago which I wear a few times each week. I have searched online for another pair the same in black but had no luck.

I think Mrscove prefers the Melbourne Peter Sheppard store and she walks there from Southbank. The trap is the shop next door.
We will be in Los Angeles in a few weeks so shopping can be so much better.

Sorry you couldn't find any shoes. Same happened to me when I went there with my Amex deal Westfield gift cards burning a hole in my pocket.

Ps I didn't get to go to your jeweller for a ring as I wasn't well when I was in Bangkok. But... a couple of weeks later I did find a beautiful long chain in Italy which was exactly what I really did (not) need.

Need some direction and hope some of the shoppers, particularly @mrsdrron can assist.

When I was in Tokyo previously I bought a lovely obi which I want to display, preferably on the wall, rather than a free standing display. I only had limited time on that trip and wasn't able to find a wall hanger despite trying many shops that sold obis and kimonos. Is this something I can purchase in Japan, or will I have to resort to amazon? I will be in Japan again later this month so welcome any ideas for where to buy one.

Gee I love Japanese material !! There are some lovely obi sashes - but I have never bought one to use as a belt - the womens ones are too wide but the mens obi sashes are great - 3" wide make a great belt !!
As to displaying them I think you would have to go to a japanese antique furniture place - I would ask a question on the TripAdvisor japan forum -" where can I buy an antique obi hanger " - I find the japanese forum very helpful ! I dont think you will find the right hanger in a shop that sells obis. Let us know what you get !! I have a large box of kimono material pieces that I have to do something with :D:D

Googling obi hangers came up with some great ideas =

Hadn't thought about TripAdvisor, so I might head over there and pose the question - thanks.

I have googled as well, and there appear to be lots of options available including amazon. I was surprised I couldn't find anything easily whilst in Tokyo. I'm hoping to find something affordable, an 'antique' obi hanger might cost more than I want to spend.

If I find one, I'll post a photo :)

Is Morrissey a good brand?

I notice mum in law using a giant Johnny Walker bag (overnight bag?) as her handbag the other day and its huge on her small 80+yr frame and she only had wallet, keys and phone inside it.

Thinking of buying this for her and sneaking it over, I usually tell her we're cleaning a cupboard and found something she might like, which is how she got the Johnny Walker duty free bag but I didnt expect her to use it as a handbag.

I believe Morrissey is stocked in Myer and seems okay for a basic handbag but I personally find the size too big for a small frame.
