My favorite part of Detroit is all of the colors– it’s the home of street art.
Each building has a million stories to tell and there are a million different ways to interpret them.
I thought I’d wear some art on one of my Carhartt jean jackets much like the buildings wearing art in Detroit.
See how you can make these fabric applique flowers yourself HERE.
It’s that time of year– VD is in the air! Valentine’s Day, I mean.
I’m a firm believer that handcrafted goodness is a way to the heart.
Plus, homemade gifts mean that you aren’t buying into commercialized love.
Two of my favorite things in all the world are sneakers and rocks.
Why not combine them into a mega-love-fest for Vday?
Gold leaf and paint some rocks to show someone you care!
(I bet you’ve never gotten gift-giving advise like that before.)
And this year, try adding a little spunk to your out of the town outfit by sneaking in some work out items.
Keep people on their toes! Rock the heck out of those running pants, girl!
It’s all about the polka dots, my friends!

New York is on all of our minds this week. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who’s been affected by Hurricane Sandy.
NYC a great city filled with a resilient community. You’ve all proven yourselves time and time again.
I was there a few weekends ago. It’s such an inspiring place with all the people, the sites, and the art.
I know this is a rough time, but we’re all on your side. We love you, New York!
I think on at least some level we can all acknowledge that fashion is an art form.
It’s an outlet for self-expression, creativity, and identification.
Mixing and matching different pieces from different time periods can lead to a beautiful mish-mash of contemporary style.
When I visited the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, I stumbled across this neon light instillation by Maurizio Nannucci.
It reinforces the respect I hold for those who create and daily redefine what role art plays in their life.
When I get dressed every morning, I make decisions based on my mood, how I want to come across that day, and factor in a bit of shock and awe.
Now consider painting or photography, and my approach to those two mediums isn’t far from the way I choose what to wear.
When you’re creating, you have something to say– a point to get across to everyone who views what you’re putting out there.
You may prefer to be more understated or try to turn heads at every corner.
Either way, you have a viewpoint and a voice you’re sharing with the world.
In the photos above, I’m wearing a new pair of sneaker wedges I’m nuts about!
They are a collaboration between Liberty of London and Nike.
I bought the Dunk Sky Hi Liberty shoes at Bodega in Boston.
My dress is from Banana Republic and the headband with netting is from Goorin Bros.
This is the outfit I wore a few weekends ago for my 25th birthday.
In honor of another year going by, I wanted to be sophisticated and slip in a bit of playfulness with the shoes.
Now get out there, dressed your best and remember– you’re a beautiful piece of contemporary art!
Last Friday night, I went to the opening night of Typeforce– a show featuring some of Chicago’s typographic all-stars.
It was a great show, with tons of work that pushed the idea of typography into some really fun exploratory areas.
My friend, Jennie Li, had work featured from her blog Shit People Tweet. (the prints about hipster boobs and Times New Roman)
Check out her tumblr! Do it!!
I wore an interesting outfit that night.
The yellow shirt is a Nike Dry Fit running shirt– which I like so much I refuse to only use it as a workout Tee.
So I paired it with a sweater vest from Express and some Steve Madden boots.
