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.
Incase you haven’t noticed, I love having fresh flowers in my apartment.
I saw some hydrangeas when I was grocery shopping with a friend today (both out in the city and in the store).
They looked so good with my Nikes I had to shoot them together.
Recently I have been thinking a lot about the Tatum print Liberty Nike Blazer. It’s my favorite pattern in the summer 2011 collection.
This in turn got me thinking about pattern. I am a pattern-o-holic. The more patterns in an outfit, the better.
Where do you think the designers of the Liberty 2011 Nike line found inspiration?
I’ve been on some plant identifying websites trying to figure out which flower is on the Tatum Liberty Nikes.
To me, it looks most like a Reiger’s Begonia.
For all I know I could be really off base with that guess.
If any of you guys know what flower it is, I’d be glad to hear from you.
After visiting the Chicago Botanical Gardens this past weekend, I can’t stop thinking about how patterns are created by people and by nature.
Every new plant, from flower to leaf to branch, I saw was so inspiring that I wanted to see what they looked like on a shoe as a pattern.
So take a look at the bits of nature that I found inspiring and the shoe that resulted.
I like to call the flower pictured above the Alien Blossom.
The color is unreal.
This leaf was huge! I dare say, it was bigger than the upper half of my body.
I really love this pattern on the shoe.
It’s practically indiscernible unless you already knew what it was.
These branches were so breathtaking with the sun coming through them.
I love the pattern reversed out on the shoe. It reminds me of a composition notebook.
Underneath the branches, there was a small fountain.
Above is the reflection from the branches on the water. creepy and oddly beautiful.
Check out the marbled effect it makes on the shoes.
Out and about in Chicago in Air Force Ones.
It is my firm belief that Nikes and flowers are a superb combination.
That’s why I’d love to have the Liberty of London Nikes.
More Flowers. More Nikes.
Perhaps I should keep the mystery alive by not explaining the picture to you,
but what the heck!
Those lines are leaves in front of my face.
hm. it sounds a little dumb when I it write it out, but it looks cool in a picture!
guess that’s what matters.
I only have eyes for you, Nike Blazers.
I’m still on the lookout. Let me know if you know where I can get the Liberty of London Nikes.
