My sister recently asked me if I’d ever given any thought to putting some artwork on shoes. Well I hadn’t, and MOST HIGH willing I will do a project for her, but until then, this is my first endeavor into the field. I converted these Tom’s into a personal work of art! Seeing how Tom’s are literally made from CANVAS, they definitely made great first candidates. I simply used my usual beloved acrylic paints. I think they turned out good. How about you?
Today I decided to break out some old friends! My Radii boots! I love these boots, but I’m just not a fan of the clicking noise they make when walking. Sounds like a chic wearing heels. So I don’t wear them often, but today I’m going to be in dirty auto shops while I search for a new wheel to replace my damaged one from the aftermath of the recent ice storms. It’s also raining, so I don’t have to worry about getting these bad boys dirty. They’re comfortable, stylish, & durable. You can’t beat that. Also, I rarely rock hats except for when it rains, but I bought 2 hats yesterday that I plan to use for more than rain. As I become more comfortable in my Personal Style I’m starting to venture out. The 2 hats make a distinctive statement about who I am. I love comics, but as far as comics & clothing go, I’ve never been a fan, but I’m starting to find cool ways to merge them. Generally I find comics inspired clothing to be too daunting. I’m more low key, but the hats I bought work for 2 reasons: 1. They FIT well and 2. They don’t overwhelm. The Voltron head actually reminds me of the Chicago Bulls logo. Maybe that’s why it works so well? My Spring/Summer Style plans to be SIMPLE. So my attention will fall on the accents or details. A nice lid, like this one, or my shoes…or a nice Rosary like these red ones I picked up from the store today and added to this gallery. And finally I bought new draws! LoL Men, you should replace your undergarments every Spring. Just trust me on this one. I’m trying Haynes’ new tagless, moisture resistant product. Here’s to Simplicity & good hygiene! . “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

“MARCH MADNESS” is in full swing which means I’m going to pretend to have some inkling of an idea as to how these games are going to pan out. LoL But this means business! So I’m dawning my 3rd “Street Suit” in order to properly fill out my Bracket. Today I’m adding my Shawl Cardigan to the mix because it’s going to be a bit colder today than our past few unseasonably Miami days. I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m actually rocking two base layers beneath all this swag. LoL A Tank Top & a T-Shirt give me the extra barriers of protection I need against the chill in the air today. Anyway, refer to the 2 previous posts for details. “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
