Last Tuesday, I turned 28. What better way to celebrate than to surround yourself in art–and what better place to do that than The MCA in Chicago? And what better to wear than a killer T-Shirt? Take a look at this Shape Shifter Tee by Curated Cotton. It’s incredibly soft and comfy and created by a couple of kick ass girls. They have several different designs and each one is screen printed by hand (see the process here).
You know how using a 35mm camera is a beautiful almost-lost art form these days? After sailing around Lake Michigan last Friday, it made me think that sailing is the 35mm of boat rides. Sailing, in its most primitive form, has been around since around 5000 BCE. It provided a wealth of food and closed large distances in a earth shrinking way. Now, it mainly serves as pastime. It’s so interesting how once revolutionary technologies transition into a cool hobby. I’ll […]
Well folks, the time has finally arrived! I’m getting married tomorrow morning! And you guessed it– I’m wearing a great pair o’ kicks! Weddings are so much work (it’s pretty silly) but I can’t wait to get my party on. Stay tuned and I’ll fill ya in on all the Nike details. I have my wedding crafts packed up and ready to entertain the crowd. Here we go!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now, I do see the irony in spending July 4th with The Rolling Stones. But I’ll tell you, it was a blast. The seasoned English performers even put on a firework display. All of the band member where wearing sneakers, but I’d love to point out that Keith Richards was wearing Nikes. How kick ass is that?! See the photo below: All I can say is that I hope to be as awesome as that when I’m in my 70s! The show […]
There’s no party like a girl-party in the windy city. With one month till the big day, I can mark the bachelorette weekend off my list. We had a blast with great friends, lots of art, drinks, and good food. Here’s a list of what we did, in case any of your guys are planning a trip to Chicago: Howells and Hood (with the largest draft beer selection in the city) Shopping on Magnificent Mile Slid down the Picasso statue […]
My order has been shipped! I just got a new pair of floral roshe run sneakers and matching tights for my honeymoon. I CANNOT WAIT. Look out Puerta Vallarta, this little sneakerhead is coming your way soon. Let’s get tropical. Take a look for yourself:
Oh, it’s the time of year for beer and peanuts galore! Last night I went to the Pirates vs. Cubs game at Wrigley Field. It was my second baseball outing of the season– both of which have been quite chilly and unfortunately filled with Porta Potties (due to ongoing construction at Wrigley). Sporting events are the time and place sit back, snack, and drink as you people watch– forget the game. There are a bunch of maniacs squished into a single […]
I took a very American walk yesterday. That sounds all official and everything, but I really just wore the flag vest I made a few years ago. There were so many beautiful brick patterns and tree fingers to behold. While we’re at it, let’s learn a little flag trivia: The colors of the Flag may be thus explained: The red or valor and bravery; the white is for purity and innocence; the blue for vigilance, perseverance, and justice (and the orange of my […]
It feels like it has been way too long since my last post, so I thought I’d catch y’all up on the comings and goings of this sneakerhead. Nike, Nike, Nike everywhere! A group of friends and I recently took a limo to the premiere of Insurgent. If you guys are familiar with my other blog, Crafted in Carhartt, you know how much I love girl power. Veronica Roth, writer of the hit series, is a champion of female heroes– […]
In 1987 the Nike Air Max was born (in good company– I’m an ’87 baby myself). This beautiful sneaker, padded with a comfy cushion of air is one of my favorite types of shoes. It’s a relaxed style that also gives a good inch of a boost to all of those who like a little extra height. There has been quite a bit of hype in the sneaker community this past week about 3/26/15. Well here it is. Happy Air […]
