Don’t you ever just wish you could make shoes? I most certainly do. A good pair of shoes can really change things up. See these shoes for instance, these shoes are inspiring me to wear calf length black skirts! I had no idea how deliciously comfortable this state of being is. Leggings as pants with oversized asymmetrical t-shirts is my everyday kid uniform.
I do have a shoe inspiration thing. So recently when our model Rachel came in wearing these beauties, I swooned and wanted more details. Turns out she makes these bad rides. It’s not every day you meet a shoemaker. Her version of the sandal below has “mohawks” (the leather jutts out ever so sweetly in back.) Really cutely punk.
Then she tells me that she’s hosting a workshop at Gravel and Gold on the 26th to teach other potential shoebies how to make their own sandals. How generous of her! I hear there are only a couple spots left.
Lastly I really want these funnel neck boots. They are taunting me on etsy in size 6. I can only dream of what kind of awesome elfin outfits they would spawn.
Alrighty I believe that’s enough nonsense for one day? Happy Friday.
Thanks to everyone that made it out to our artshow this past friday. The photographs look amazing and are priced to sell ($40). So if you get a chance, come by and check out the new work.
The SF Guardian gave the show a little shout out:
“Artifacts of Living” photo show at Curator, 1767 Church, SF; (415) 970-9828: Artifacts of Living. 6-9pm, free. Check out the collection of photos taken with a 1960s Olympus Pen Camera by local photographer Andrew Martin Scott. His photography is contemporary, yet his photos have a vintage quality looking as though they were taken decades ago. Not so, and no iPhone Hipstamatic or any other make-my-photo-look-old-and-cool apps were used either. Get nostalgic for the good ol’ days with images of decaying signs, rusty old cars, antique bikes, and an assortment of old barns, pawn shops, laundromats, liquor stores, barber shops and coffee joints. And it wouldn’t be a proper art opening without booze, so no need to B.Y.O. since the smart folks at Curator have that covered.

Sit and picture Hawaii for a second. There is likely to be a floral image float in your mind, maybe a tiki torch, shells, some tourists. Certainly some waves and waterfalls. Maybe those puka hot dogs on “No Reservations”? But how about a black fringe leather bikini top? Welcome to Stacy’s mind preparing for Hawaii. I just saw this etsy purchase roll through our account. Followed up by a note explaining she just had to have this! Just one of ten million reasons I love her.
