I know- they are awkward and kind of ugly and I am pretty sure I almost lost my job because when I debuted them at work my outfit was a total fail and my boss didn't look me in the eyes all day. But, they have a bit of a Yoji/ Rick vibe, are super comfortable and are the only sandals I have worn in NY that keep my feet from getting icky. Remember when Kate (Moss, duh) wore Wellingtons and short shots at the Glastonbury Music Festival in 2008? She pretty much, single-handedly, revived the old school rain boot brand. I have a hunch Tevas could have a similar moment this summer- maybe at Outside Lands in August, and will then be all over the music festival circuit and quirky/cute girls' feet in summer 2012.

Smell is a weird word and a sensational sense. I am addicted to wearing MMM's Untitled. I would also wear CDG's Avignon- but my boss wears it and that would be weird. I am addicted to burning Dyptyque's Feu De Bois and just gave my buddy CDGxMonocle One: Hinoki as a houswarming/birthday gift but wish I had kept it for my self.

I dig. Maybe because I am still searching high and low for Converse Stars and Bars that I have loved ever since my BFF in grade 4 Casey B. got them on a trip to Florida. Image via Convent. Racked.com tells me they are having a massive blow out sale in June- I could wait to see if these get marked down to 80% off, or if I just get over them.

Olivier Theyskens and Aimee Mullins (both super-powerhouses of inspiration) at the 2011 Met Ball honoring the work of Alexander McQueen. Unfortunately, this image does not do justice to the pure magic that was her dress (and his tie). Photo via style.com.
