inspiration
furniture (especially chairs from the 50s and 60s), uniforms, repeating patterns, menswear, Oscar Niemeyer, traditional Japanese architecture, the Rimpa School and Ogata Korin's 8-Point Bridge, Matisse, bromeliads, succulents and other waxy flora

particular loves
bamboo, coral, moss, woodgrain, silhouettes & other cut-outs, plastic, low-resolution images, the photo copier, off-registration prints, Max Ernst's Lunar Asparagus, NYC fire call boxes that look like Kannon, Fauvist color sense, the Noguchi Museum, pretty much all of Abstract Expressionism

magazines of current interest
Domino, Elle Decor (British), ARTnews, Art in America, Wallpaper

favorite heel style
the wedge, but a sleek modern interpretation

second favorite
the stiletto

current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.

how do you like these sneakers?

The new Fall season means my thoughts have turned to new sneakers. It used to mean new shoe shopping, but with the walking I do, shoes aren't really working out for me at the moment. Sneakers are my new friend for covering ground and seeing all there is to see in New York.

Pictured below* are some that I am liking of late (and that I have tried on and like. There is a difference you know. Like it on the rack. Like it not so much on your feet. It is amazing how some colors can look so good on the rack and so bad on your feet. And vice versa, believe it or not.) After much trying-on, I have found these styles to be comfortable and colorful; and some even look good with skirts.

SAUCONY Jazz are super comfortable!
the purples and navy would be good with denim

SAUCONY Jazz
all the grey tones look good with skirts
I chose a pair that is grey, light grey and turquoise
for my very own. I am also liking a navy/light blue combo
but that would be just too many sneakers. Or would it?ASICS Onitsuka Tiger
this color combo is kind of like my SAUCONY's
but the pair I want in this particular brand are navy & copper.
really nice! but too many wants.
ah, shopping
