A Tango Obsession

I have a confession to make. I am absolutely crazy in love with tango. It is an obsession with many positives, but also a good few negative aspects to it. I fall in love with it for a heady few months, and then come down to earth (sometimes literally ...) feeling depressed and tearful for a horrible few days, only to be lifted to new heights of ardour and passion, and then down to the depths of despair again. Oh dearie me. What a roller-coaster ride! What shall I do? I think I shall plan a tango outfit for the next tango salon and go totally overboard! Yes, that is it. A Donna Karan dress, shoes to die for from Viecouture, a swarovski cuff, delightful striped stockings, and just to be contrary a fierce pair of diamante frames. Come back, Carlos Gardel ....

For my next tango-post I will tell a little about tango in Cape Town ... In the meantime, drool over these lovely tango-shoes available from GretaFlora

tango is definitely an interest that has its own unique, distinctive wardrobe that really captures and reflects it's spirit.

Dear editor and stephanie:
Tango is very much supposed to be about connection and interpretation of the music, but I must confess that for me the outfit is quite important. (Deep down I am quite superficial ...)
Thanks for popping in!

Every girl deserves at least one pair of gorgeous shoes! And Tango provides SUCH a good excuse for more than one pair ;o)

I agree about the Tango roller-coaster too. I guess as long as we remember the thrill of the highs, we'll hang in through the lows?

Dear Kendalee: Sounds like you know about that rollercoaster ride! But we get back on every time, don't we? And I am SO with you on the gorgeous shoes.
