the photo was below taken by Q Avenue Photo If you know me, you might think that the last thing I would have worn to my own wedding was a traditional wedding dress. In fact, a few years ago, I probably would have said the very same thing. The truth is that I didn’t have any idea what I wanted to wear until I started trying things on. After I got my hands on a piece of work by Ines Di Santo, I knew […]
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.

Love them or hate them, sneaker wedges are a current trend. They’ll be around for a bit, so my plan is to buy as many as I can. I think most people may be drawn to the comfort aspect over the visual appeal. Not me, I am so in love with the lift it gives your leg, elongating your silhouette, while still being sporty.
