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.

i switched to the new blogger!

I just switched to the new version of Blogger. Excited to see how the tagging helps index pages. What should I label this post? Examples at the bottom are "scooters, vacation, fall." How about scooters.

***
Update:
Now that I am using the new Blogger, I have some questions. How do you "publish" your new template changes? There is no button. UGH. The new version of Blogger is supposed to "free you from publishing." The changes publish automatically. But what about the template changes? HELP. The new version seems to be more push-button, more visual. I like the old one. More text-based. We'll see. Maybe the new version will grow on me.

I like the old version better as well. Yeah, the new blogger has some useful features, but the widget template baffles me. Eventually, I'll have to switch over, but I'm worried about template editing, too. Maybe someone has helpful advice?

(Love your blog, btw... I've been reading down the page).

Template editing turned out to be exactly the same as the old one. It instantly publishes changes, mysteriously. There is no button anymore. Just go for it. It is slicker, but I kind of like 'klunkier' as a rule. Call me a luddite. Thanks for commenting Sara! Glad you like my blog! I like yours too.
