Fashion Fascination: Clogs

I will be the first to say that clogs have never been my cup of tea, when it came to shoes.  There was something too chunky and uncomfortable about them.  Until, however...I saw this look below.

It was just completely perfect and got me craving a pair of my own.  I think I'd definitely go for the summer, sandal clog.  It's a good piece to elevate my summer looks.

These.  I want these.

"Go Ahead & Like It" by Jacqueline Suskin

Whenever I'm at a loss for blog posts, I go to my Pinterest page for inspiration.  And it never fails.  This quote below reminds me of something I came across while discovering LA with my sister a few weeks back, one of the highlights of my time there.

This is Jacqueline Suskin.  Definitely one of LA's hidden gems, she is a "writer, performance poet and artist."  My sister and I met her at a farmer's market and I was instantly infatuated with her and Poem Store.

According to her website, Poem Store is a "performance-business-poetry piece that consists of composing custom poetry on a manual typewriter, in exchange for a donation. Your subject, your price."

While talking to her, she mentioned that she had written a book called "Go Ahead & Like It".  The book describes the benefits, social, mental, and emotional, of writing these "I like:" lists.  While it hasn't been officially released, I got a sneak peek look at the book and immediately fell in love with its beautiful illustrations and poetic prose.  I can't wait until its official release and I recommend everyone check out her website.

Currently listening to; "Believe" Mumford and Sons
Despite all of the criticism for Mumford and Sons' new sound, I cannot stop listening to this song.
