soon it will be bike weather...

Oh, how I want this bike basket!

I'm probably selling my trusty old cruiser before I leave Chicago in hopes of getting something lighter. I love the sturdiness of a cruiser; I feel like I would crash on a road bike. Maybe I'll just get a new alloy cruiser made from super light aluminum!

unicorns, oh my!

I missed the Mythic Creatures exhibition when it was at the Natural History Museum in New York, and now it's at the Field Museum in Chicago! I know how I'm going to spend this weekend.

green blue grey brown stones

In Brooklyn, there is the ubiquitous brownstone. In Chicago, they are more commonly referred to as graystones because, well, the stones are gray. There are some interesting exceptions:

free my feet

It makes me so sad that stores move up displaying their spring merchandise earlier and earlier every year. Mostly because I want to free me feet from this prison they call socks and live in sandals again. It won't be sandal weather for another 2 or 3 months, ho hum.

First off, I need to replace my Worishofers...not only are my ones from last year worn down, but I ordered them one size too small.

A few from Chie Mihara that I'll never afford:

you turn my head around

The relationship Ben and I have has always reminded me of Dean & Britta. It makes me want to watch the Luna documentary again. I also have to read Dean's book once it comes out (March 13th!).

flying fish

I'm a little bored of being bedridden. Although I think I'd prefer sick and in bed than to some other places I'm supposed to be.

sick in bed...

...Leads to online purchases.

At first I hated these ChloƩ shoes, then I loved them, but by the time I loved them it was a few seasons past their prime, which is the kiss of death in the fashion world.

Then I found these Jeffrey Campbell shoes, which were about $600 cheaper, but alas they were all sold out too!

Luckily (or unluckily for my credit card) I found some in my size with my google-sleuthing skills.

I'm getting rid of a lot of shoes soon, I swear.
