Converse are a kind shoe I can never have enough of, so when Target approached me about sending over a pair of Converse One Stars to decorate however I wanted, I obviously said yes. While there was a kit with all kinds of glitter, fabric markers, sequins, etc, I realized that I loved the simplicity of the shoe and wanted to keep them that way. So what did I do? I grunged them up just a wee bit by adding three spikey studs to each shoe. I love that there’s now an unexpected surprise in my simple white sneakers and that they could probably double as weapons if I wanted them too.

Well, it doesn’t stop there. Target would love to send one of you splendid readers a Target gift card and a decorating kit in the hopes that you will decorate your very own pair of Converse One Stars as well!



Just like my last giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below but this time I want you to tell me one place that you would love to travel to someday…

I’ll announce the winner on Thursday!


…et voila!

Along with my obsessions with sharks, nature, and Egypt, I also have a deep interest in outerspace; so much so that if an alien landed in NYC tomorrow and asked if I wanted to hop on his UFO and go back to Mars with him I would say yes without so much of a blink of an eye. I enrolled in an astronomy class in college but dropped out after the first two days once I realized how much math was involved. Me + Math = An arranged marriage that ended up in an ugly divorce. Fortunately, looking at photos and watching videos about other galaxies involves absolutely no math so I can still feed my obsession without hurting my brain. Yay!

The color of these pants reminds me of that weird yellowy, green sky in photos I’ve seen of Mars so I thought it only fitting that I focus today’s post on that curious planet. I actually wore this outfit during Fashion Week on one of the only days I opted for no heels - it was amazing. I figured the bold, red lip made up for the lack of interesting shoes. Plus you can’t very well take a trip to Mars in 5-inch platforms, now can you…

Stompin’ on Chuckies

April 20, 2011

I’ve been wearing some version of Converse since I was about four years old. My first pair was a pair of maroon Converse high-tops that I wore until there were holes in the soles (hello rhyme!), and well, not much has changed with a few of my pairs today. I have a variety of Converse now from the Missoni x Converse high tops to my staple basic black low tops that are pretty close to biting the dust, but when Converse sent over this pair of charcoal Chuck Its my toes and I wiggled with delight. I love how simple they are and that I can slip them on without the tiniest bit of effort. I put this outfit together for a relaxed day of walking and window shopping around Soho and couldn’t have been more comfortable. What this outfit lacks in color is made up in comfort. Now that’s an outfit I can get behind.

*psst!* scroll to the bottom of this post for a super awesome giveaway

Converse x Target

Yesterday I was invited to test out my styling skills with the latest collection of Converse for Target. I’m a big lover of all things Target and all things Converse so I was pretty excited to check out/play with the new line first hand. While I wouldn’t wear everything in the collection, I was pretty much obsessed with the beautifully constructed trench coats (they came in navy blue, army green and khaki) and much to my surprise, the blue jeans! Normally I hate blue jeans, but these were both stretchy and structured and I can already imagine myself wearing them with some summer sandals and a white peasant top. I also loved this sheer white tunic that would make the perfect bathing suit cover - I can’t believe I already have to think about bathing suit season…oy. Anyways, here are the three looks that I styled. There weren’t a lot of clothing options, but this is what I came up with!

Like most fashion bloggers, I thoroughly enjoy sifting through magazines and style blogs to give me inspiration when I can’t seem to find any in my own closet. Yet, even as I do this, I can’t deny the art history major in me that finds symmetry and patterns throughout my searches. While Jak & Jil is most well known for the documentation of footwear, I couldn’t help but notice that so many blogs have absolutely beautiful photographs of shoes!! Here are some of my favorites:
