We had some beautiful weather over the week here in Oakland, CA. I got to spend sometime outside by the pool, walked to the farmers Market, and get some much needed Vitamin D in my life. As I was spending this much needed time outside I looked down at my feet and thought two things.

Women’s Shoes that Aren’t Pink!: Nike City Collection

 

I swear I rant and rave about this weekly on twitter. The powers that be over at sneaker companies like Nike, need to realize that not all women want shoes that are Pink or Purple or some other stereotypical color like powder blue. Personally I steer clear of shoes that color unless they are extremely dope and a must have. Someone must have been listening to me.  Continue reading

Slackin’ On My Mackin……

Man oh man! I am no good. The month of May has decided to be so busy that I cannot find any time to just sit and write. Between preparing for Bonnaroo in June, working my side/main hustle (also known as my day job) and coming up with new project for the site, I have been SWAMPED. I feel sad because I really enjoy blogging and just writing in general but my spirit has to be in the right place. I have also been going though major changes so that may have contributed to my slackness. But these excuses are neither here nor there and when you know better you do better. So I’ll just do better. I am working on a new editorial with a fellow stylist that I am excited about and working on getting some new tools to produce better work (hello Ipad, hello new laptop, hello camera) Which means better posts and cooler stuff for you all to read and see! So this is my apology note for being a slacker. Tis all.

This Pic has little to do with the post, But I needed a pic and I like this sweatshirt.

Sorry Mr. Tisci…….

Let me preface this by saying, I am a fan of both Nike and Givenchy. However the sum of the two left much to be desired. Glorified Air Forces are not my jam. I would have preferred an Air Max, Roshe run etc. When I initially heard about the Nike x Riccardo Tisci collaboration I was really excited. I immediately started thinking about what the collection was going to look like and how epic it was going to be. (I even posted about it HERE) Along with thinking about how much money I needed to put to the side in order to make sure I had a pair. For lack of a better description…I WAS JUICED…Then I saw the actual designs, and immediately reallocated those funds to my Asos wish list.

I totally see where Tisci was going with the designs especially based of what he delivered in his most recent Men’s collection. For me it just didn’t quite connect. I hope they give this another go, but a different design angle altogether, I know Riccardo has it in him to make me want to skip meals and buy his Nikes…..Maybe next time.

What did you think about the collection? Wowed or Nah?

Happy Air Max Day!

Today marks the birthday of Nike’s iconic shoe… The Air Max! Turning 28 today Nike made “air visible” by showcasing an air bubble in the sole. With the collaborative efforts of Frank Rudy, Mark Parker, and Tinker Hatfield. This team revolutionized the way we see air. To celebrate this great day in sneaker history Nike is releasing a special shoe for its birthday!
