Rest in Peace Davy Jones. You were my favorite Monkee. Always a smile on your face, what a spirit you had. You will be missed by so many. The memories you gave us through music and melodies of your songs will always live on in our hearts. The Monkees were one of my earliest music memories - my brothers very first record. I must have only been three or four... We used to put on the record and run around the room singing and dancing like crazy. One of my favorite memories ever with my brother.

images via racked.comI can't say I'm not interested in checking it out. However, I am becoming more and more hesitant toward all of the designer collaborations. I was certainly turned off by Missoni for Target and burned by Jason Wu for Target. But, I keep going back. What can I say? The price is right. What I do know is: It's going to be fun watching all the adult fashionistas trying to squeeze themselves into the Diane von Furstenberg collection for Gap Kids. The designer states that fashion is empowerment and that "To empower a little girl is to empower the woman she will become."
I was featured on Chicago Street Style a couple of days ago. Amy and I had lunch at Fred's last week and discussed fashion, blogger drama, and when to play the southern card (because we are both southern girls). Good times. She is truly amazing at what she does and I am such a huge fan of her blog that of course I was stoked when she wanted to take my photo for Chicago Street Style. Even though I was having a bad bangs day (hence the hat), I was wearing my new ASH wedge sneaker shoes. Perfect timing. Amy is the best and I can't wait to see all of the amazing pictures she snaps at NYFW!!!
We walk a lot here in Chicago so I'm constantly looking for a marraige of comfort and style in a shoe. Naturally I fell in love with these ASH wedge sneakers that kind of favor the Isabel Marant "IT" sneaker. Plus, I can always use a couple extra inches. These are slightly unexpected, but for some reason I fell hard.
