Pardon My Jeffrey Campbell

Here’s why Violaine succumbed to the awful power of Jeffrey Campbells (she promised me she’d never go for them again, even if threatened).

“I bought them on a whim on a trip to NYC few seasons ago because (in no specific order):

1. I’m not a New Yorker (yet) and international impulsive purchases don’t count.

2. They make my legs longer.

3. I have tiny feet so it doesn’t look like I’m a clown, but more like I’m one of Charles Anastase’s muses or something.

4. The version I got it’s a very rare pattern (cough) so it makes it kind of exclusive (more cough).

5. If they make my legs longer, it makes me taller. So when I’m on a shoot it allows me to hold a conversation with a model’s boobs rather than a model’s crotch (doesn’t save from embarrassment but decreases it massively).

6. They are SOOOOOO comfortable.

7. I can wear them when I go out and I’m not scared to destroy them.

8. I’m so confident with my personal style that I don’t care what people think (some excuses can also be the biggest lies).

9. I’m French and in some ways probably a descendant of Coco Chanel so I can get away with everything (WOOOOWW).

And one day I stopped wearing them because I ran out of excuses.”

Violaine no longer wears Jeffrey Campbell and is the editor-in-chief of Velour magazine.
