things may get a bit quiet around here..all of a sudden i have all these THINGS happening!
starting tomorrow night i will be teaching a class once a week at one of the fine art schools here in the city and i am super excited. (if any of the students read this blog i may die of embarrassment).
while i was scanning some imagery to INSPIRE the YOUTH OF AMERICA (yay!) i came across an ad for john fluevog biscuit mary-janes in the back of an issue of BIKINI (april/may 1994!).
these were the thing i craved most in my young 15 year old life.
they were EVERYTHING to me.
i had this ad on my wall and i was dyinggg for them. (my memory is failing me, and i cant remember ever getting them. my sister will remember- did i teenz?)
sidenote: when i was 15, prince street had exactly 2 destinations that i cared about. the stussy store and next to it, the fluevog store. both were place i spent my birthday cash [maroon suede converse one stars with fat laces at stussy, mary-janesssss at fluevog). everything else was kinda sketch and nothing. today it is basically a MALL and in place of stussy and fluevog, we have intermix and miu miu (if memory serves)].
and with that we conclude the WHITE LIGHTNING TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE segment for today. back to preparations!
EDIT: this is all still true but these ARE NaNa's, not fluevogs. which i kinda always thought were the same. but they ain't. i'm losing my mind. hearts, WL
