Asics!? How did you know?
I don’t post often about sporty, active, exercise types of activity here. I am terrible when it comes to going to the gym or exercise. My man BC is great about staying fit and being healthy. He is the best influence on me. But you may know he is away all summer making art in the woods of Maine. So I have slacked off a bit. And by a bit, I mean totally.
How inspired was I to find that my pals over at Asics decided to bestow these limited edition Gel Blur33’s especially designed for the Olympics?! Ok, yes, I will do it! I am really looking forward to wearing these when I get to LA and hiking up in Griffith Park to the Observatory.
Let’s just take a moment to talk about how cute they are, I mean one kick has stripes and the other has stars. Seriously, I will have no problem rocking these babies.
Thanks Asics, for the kicks and the kick in the butt. How did you know?
Can you kick it?
Yes, you can! Summer is just around the corner and if you are like me there will be one pair of go-to kicks for those all-day on the bicycle kind of weeks. Here you have it, the new Missoni for Converse Chuck Taylor All Star collection that is dropping tomorrow. You better make moves before you are left in the dust. You know these babies go quick.

Oh, yeah, you’re welcome. Enjoy your weekend.
NYC fashion events bring you to places you might not visit and I am here to share it with you. When I passed the New Museum on Bowery and walked into The Bowery DIner I realized it was the perfect venue for the 75th anniversary party of iconic sneaker brand PF Flyers. The retro details of The Bowery Diner was ideal for the throw back style of the updated classic kicks. They served us delicious food and potent cocktails (try my namesake the JenniLee) while I caught up with some of my favorite associates like the Hungry Editor and Samia from HighSnobette and Rudy from Cockpit.
