Shoes, Chocs, Bags, and Frocks
A compendium of beautiful thoughts for women of taste and splendorMore About Shoes, Chocs, Bags, and FrocksEdward Monkton, perhaps better known as the U.K.''s top-selling living poet Giles Andreae, pairs a witty and quirky writing style with simple yet elegant illustrations to celebrate the four bastions of femininity, namely: shoes, chocolate, purses, and clothes. Be it a handbag of glory, the shoes of salvation, the beautiful frock, or the kingdom of chocolate, Monkton fluidly expounds the virtues of many a lady''s desires: Buy me, Lady, said the frock,and I will make you into a BEAUTIFUL and WHOLE and COMPLETE Human Being. Do not be SILLY, said the Man, for a frock alone cannot do that. TRUE, said the Lady. I will have the Shoes and the Bag as well.
