Today’s a day for making cookies.
I am celebrating my new shoes. (Yes, it turns out it really is all about the shoes… ask Anessa.) I had a chat with Coke Dreadlow, the maker of the puddle jumpers I reviewed a few days ago, and he asked if I had seen his Lo-Tops. Well, no I hadn’t so he kindly passed me a pair. I spent the next hour plus fiddling with them, clicking buttons on the hud, changing colors on the laces and the sides and the tops, joyfully experiencing my new shoes (which fit like they were old shoes).
They started out this spiffy black with white laces, the kind every cool guy wears until he’s 43 (and then at that magic age, they are not so cool anymore). Then I did this preppy punk version with the argyle and the checks.
I kind of got out of hand with it. I did the koi with flowers with complimentary purple laces. Then I did the .. well.. clown shoes *cough*. I just couldn’t stop.
It’s all due to the brilliance of this handy dandy super-magical hud included with the shoes. You can click the inside on and change that to polka dots, or click the inside and outside and make them all bunny pink, or click the tongue and laces and make the camouflage or… well you get the picture. The only thing missing is the ball-point penned-on doodles my RL Chuck Taylors had (and the tread traced around on the bottom with the same ball point). Coke has made a fun and functional piece of brilliant art.
There really is a story about making cookies somewhere in here. I made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies tonight, reminded by the handy dandy mixer strapped to my leg (complete with beaters). Gosh I love this mixer from PrimtroniCS. I pulled out a wooden spoon and put this ensemble on. The uber-cute jeans were a bloggers gift from Anyusha Lilienthal and the top is one from Cynthia Ultsch I snagged at the RFL clothing fair.
I bet you are wondering about these robot earrings. I bought the earrings and bracelet at the recent Jewelry Fair because they were whimsical and cool. They matched the shoes in lightheartedness. I saw an artist at a recent art show in Chicago doing prints with robots similar to these. I predict robots are the Next Big Thing. (Haven’t they been saying that for about a century now? Next thing you know they will be telling us we will be talking on typewriters to each other and walking around as cartoons!)
