because i also like apparel:

i painted my thrift store brown oxfords G-O-L-D, goooold today. used a bit of gold spraypaint i already had. i have been meaning to do this for a while (remember the 'domino' issue with kelly wearstler on the front, wearing gold oxfords? no? well, it happened) i sprayed it into the can topper, then brushed it on with an old chip brush. (you may be questioning my taste now, but the holiday season is upon us, and incase you didn't know, oxfords are all the rage)

the oxfords were already pretty awesome, but i'm ordering  a new pair, so they got a paint job like everything else i own.
 1. those are my painting pants, and 2. i didn't get a tan all summer, therefore my legs are pasty white. good for my goal of not getting skin cancer, bad for photo sessions. 
i might switch the laces out with something a little sassier pretty soon here...like maybe...some pink ribbon? or brown ribbon? i dunno. i can also imagine them with some cute ankle socks worn with a short little skirt. HAPPY HOLIDAYYYYYZZZ
