I’ve been lucky enough to go to London on several occasions. Without fail, I always forget how easy it is to walk 10 miles a day while you’re exploring. It’s a huge city. In the US, big cities are extremely vertical and squished together (unless you’ve been in LA too long). London, like many European cities, is on the short side and super spread out. This stay in London was filled with rest and visiting friends. I also happened to […]
After spending 4 or 5 days in London, all I could think was–this place is huge! I averaged walking about 10 miles a day. You can’t even begin to compare the magnitude of Chicago (where I live) to London. It’s more like a shorter, more spread out version of New York. The diversity of the population is quite beautiful. The streets are congested, but with a touch of charm on every corner. The people don’t give you a second glance. Everything is […]
So this is a post I’m really excited about! I teamed up with the NTC Nike Women’s Store in Chicago to help them announce their Liberty x Nike Bourton Pack. Exciting, huh? What a dream come true to take photos for Nike officially. They gave me an arm load of sneakers and I set off to photograph these gorgeous shoes around the windy city. This iconic Bourton print is originally from Liberty of London in the 1960s. Doesn’t the pattern look so […]

I’ve always felt very at home surrounded by stark white walls. Not like an insane asylum but a museum show room. Art museums are like big fancy houses. Beautiful things to look at. Things you’re not allowed to touch. I went to the MCA in Chicago yesterday. Plaid on plaid on black and bows. I wore my fashion week London Sky High Dunks from NTC Lincoln Park.
Ladies, ladies, Chicago ladies. You have to get your bum down to the Nike store in Lincoln Park. It’s time to see London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, and New York City in sneaker form. They were designed for the fashion capitals of the world just in time for fashion week. Take a close look at each pair. Paris is covered in a spring-ish tweed with a golden swoosh. New York is a silver toned reptilian print with pony hair panels and […]
Since it’s seeming less and less likely that I’ll be able to get my hands on a pair of Liberty Nikes, I’m keeping my eyes open for a new pair of sneakers. I don’t want to give up on the Tatum Print Blazers yet, so I’m on a lookout for the Liberty Blazers and open to the possibility of a different new pair of shoes. Even though I’m tired of hearing about the royal wedding, I do hope that because […]
If you have been stalking Liberty of London to snatch up a pair of their Nike Liberty Collection, I’m sure you’ve meet some frustration along the way. Their site took about an hour to show they had any shoes in stock, and once they were available to order, only certain sizes were on sale. It’s really frustrating. I know so many of the fans have been anxiously awaiting the release of these shoes. I think we’re all crying tears over […]
