CRUSHES || BLACK & WHITE
momma got some new shoes. target is finally here in the city i live (wahoo!!) and i couldn't resist picking up these cute black and white slip on shoes last time i was there. when i spotted the triangles i had to have them. i've been crushing big time on triangles for almost a year now and i just couldn't pass on a pair of shoes with triangles on them. i've always been inspired by geometrics and prints and bringing them into my designing and especially into textural elements in my knitting (aka dreiecke hat) so it seemed natural to have them on my feet too.
i've also been drawn lately to the cleanliness of black and white. i love the crisp feel and how well they pair with the neon's that are coming back right now. at first i felt old seeing neon's back on the store shelves again. i have many a memory of neon's in ahem....younger years. but i quickly got inspired. i decided to try to make neon feel fresh in my life again. i recently got a bright neon pink running top and you know what - it didn't feel 80's it felt fresh and new and since i don't feel really old i decided to just work it and run with it. embrace the color and at the same time embrace the black/white. i am a gemini after all...it's in my sign to love two of everything.
