Welcome to your Wednesday Rewind, folks! This is a post from 2011. I was rummaging through some old photos and found this series. Butternut squash and fall and chevron and Nikes and Missoni. Sounds like pure bliss, huh? yep. What do you think I should paint this year?
I fell in love with Chicago the day I moved here. Three years later, and I still think this city’s got it goin’ on. Beautiful summer days and free art shows. You have to check out The Happy Show by Stefan Sagmeister in the Cultural Center. It really gets you thinking. I know the sign at the beginning says the exhibition will not make you happier. But maybe it can paint things for you in a new light. Or it can help […]

I went to a Foals concert last Saturday night at the Vic in Chicago. Talk about an insanely good show. Holy Fire is a hell of an album. “My Number” is destined to be a huge hit. My personal favorite is “Bad Habit.” The lead singer is a maniac.He was crowd surfing, still playing his guitar. He scaled walls and even climbed up into one of the box seats. In short, check them out. Get your dance on!
sweet, sweet Texas… There’s nothing like sipping on lemonade by a lake. I was just in Fredericksburg for a dear friend’s wedding. A big group of us stayed in a quaint little cottage right off the main street downtown. Picturesque doesn’t even begin to describe it. We went on a day long wine tour, ate some great Texan food, and soaked up the warm weather. I’m beyond obsessed with the Tokyo sky highs from the fashion week collection. I saw […]

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know about a really cool design studio project called Tread Project, that teaches high school students about shoe design. We all know how important the right shoes can be at that age. Heck- they are still even really important to me at my age- and I know a lot of people who feel the same way. Shoes design can be a great opportunity to live out your passion and express yourself. How […]
So a about a year ago I graduated from college. Kinda seems irrelevant to the blog, until I tell you the shoe ordeal leading up to the ceremony. I was dead-set on wearing my Nikes while I walked across the stage. My mom pleaded with me not to. Seeing as how she and my dad made it possible for me to be graduating in the first place- I figured I owed it to her to bend to her request. […]
Remember a few posts back when I posted research for Nike Street Wear? A little refresher: Nike Street Wear would be a women’s line of Nikes intended for everyday purposes. Lord knows we need comfortable shoes to wear as we lead our active life styles without sacrificing style. On my plane trip from Chicago to Kansas City I did a few sketches for some ideas of what I had in mind for Nike Street Wear. We’ll see what happens! Don’t […]
