Golden Brown: A song by the Stranglers, a skilled band who broke through in the late 70’s when punk was popular. This band, however, were too skilled at songwriting and playing to truly fit the genre.
At the time it charted I had no idea the lyrics related to taking drugs. At face value the song was about being relaxed, soaking up the best of life. With hints at devotion to a lover it promised a journey somewhere exotic.
So this week for #SinfulSunday I ‘m modelling my favourite shoes, which always remind me of antique luggage. They are made of brown linen with 2 leather straps on each just like a retro suitcase. I nearly didn’t buy them as they are a little higher my norm, but they always draw compliments so others love them as much as I do.
For a cute ‘babygirl’ twist I’ve teamed them with ankle socks with a lace trim.
