Every day is an adventure... dress accordingly!

SHOE PORN

Sartorial Summation

It’s hard to realize how much your brain absorbs and processes. I concoct these ensembles daily without much thought, but often wonder where the hell in depths of my subconscious these visions come from and why it all makes sense.

Despite having worked in two of them many years ago, I detest indoor gyms (with the sole exception of my hot yoga spot). In lieu of a common meat market, I absolutely adore being outside in the fresh air, with the breeze hitting my face as I run – almost like a motivating gift from Mother Nature for showing up to your workout. Sneakers pound uneven trails that not only add resistance but also, and better yet, picturesque scenery. 

So, what do you get when you add a few honking Canadian geese, pebbled shores and the coarse, beauteous bark of an uprooted tree, peppered with the nautical inspiration of the bodies of water and the living creatures you pass by?

La Discothèque

If those robin’s speckled eggs candies and the Easter bunny went to Studio 54 and danced the night away in a passionate and hazy, drug-induced trance of flashing lights, polyester prints, snakeskin, fur coats and deep plunging necklines:

these would surely be their illegitimate love child.

Miu Miu Fall 2012 (bestowed upon me by the shoe gods at over 80% off)

Some shoes are TOO good to be called shoes. They are just INCREDIBLE, wearable art.
