French or American?

Nothing like navy, red, and white. If you’re quick, you just might get this umbrella before it’s sold out.  Wondering about my red skirt – it’s an old abercrombie & fitch skirt and I’m layering my cable knit navy ralph lauren sweater with a striped H&M shirt to match my striped headband.    (both the skirt and sweater are about 10 years old!…buy quality cotton!  sadly my H&M shirt surely won’t last)  (all photos taken by me the model with a tripod & timer =))


From Friends


A photo from Black Sheep Postal Service, a company started by my friend Justin Kerr to help you stay in touch with your family.  Inspires me to ask lots of people to send in photos like this one.  


These are part of a street photo exhibit in Bangkok. My fun, CreativeThai friend, A toook this and it has 3 of my favorite things – classic black converse chuck taylors, an umbrella, and giant lizards (aka dinosaurs!)

Faux Fur Scarf for Newness


I’ve probably had this dress since freshman or  sophomore year of high school.  It’s wool and from the Gap – when they made long lasting, quality stuff with great everlasting design.

Strike a Pose

I love how a new Moore & Moore faux fur ermine assymetrical scarf dresses an old dress up for winter plus gives me a little extra warmth.  And of course I love how my classic Converse Chuck Taylor make the outfit casual and fun, despite the FAUX fur glam look.

Walk Like an Egyptian


Last but not least, when I want a splash of fun red for an otherwise black and white outfit,  foldable Sunpocket aviator sunglasses are perfect to wear.



Chucks at the Met after Christmas

Outside the MET two friends wait for the bus in their Converse All Stars


In style or not, I enjoy my Red Wolf Spirit Hood and my all black converse chuck taylor all stars. with skinny jeans


My purpose for going to the met was to see the Faking It Photo Manipulation Exhibit.  While the photos were interesting, you really have to read the detailed notes about the photographs to truly appreciate the exhibit.

Never Leave Home Without Chucks

On my last trip to London I was a little surprised I didn’t take note of as many people wearing Converse All Stars as I thought I would, but as soon I questioned their popularity in the UK I spotted two friends or sisters wearing the exact same maroon pair.

I’ve never seen a duo quote like this….oooh, and I just noticed the grey pair of chucks next to them.  Guess they are equally popular in the UK  ^_^  


I traveled with one other pair of shoes, something slightly more dressier, but reality is if you’re not going to go out to any fancy restaurants and you’re not going to run or hike or go to the beach in flip flops, I think all that one needs is a pair of chucks for traveling.


One my new favorite photos based on the different perspective and the colors

Elsie – the Boot Collection

It was love at first sight!

Today was my first day seeing the Chuck Taylor Elsie from Converse’s (new?) boot collection.    And they are sooooooo unbelievably bad ass and adorable.

Thus far I’ve never been able to pull off the Chuck Taylor high tops (I think they make my legs look stalky) but after seeing this young lady wear them with some over the knee socks, I might give them a try.

Tray6's pixel plaid stick umbrella at Amé Amé goes perfectly with the new Converse Chuck Taylor Elsies that are part of the Converse Boot Collection


They almost look like bows on the back but they're not. These Convser Chuck Taylor Elsies rock.
