.... from the SHADBELLY blog. Listen, thanks for the letters. I know I should have written back sooner, but this SHADBELLY thing has really taken off - I've had barely a moments rest!
I DO appreciate all the advice, really I do, but what I really want are the details on your fabulous Alessandro Albanese shadbelly. You know - the one you wore at Devon and at that little thing you did in Central Park?
I simply must get my hands on [some apparel from] Alessandro! Now that the new Alessandro Albanese site is up and running, his elegant ready to wear pieces are a mere click away and he's treating us all to free shipping on online orders through December 14th. Next, I'll have Alessandro and his brilliant team of tailors in Turin create a luxurious, made-to-measure competition coat ... just for me, Catherine, ME!
Now for accessories. Hmm, that German rider badge of yours certainly does add a nice touch to a shadbelly. But who (besides you of course) has the time to pack up the the horses and move to Germany for a Goldenes Reitabzeichen? Think I can pick one up on eBay?
Got to run, dear, the Chronicle is calling.
