KicksandChicks: For Our Dude Readers

20 April 2008, 03.33 | Posted in Sneakers | No comments »

Samia, my blogging partner, believes that we have a lot of male readers. I think she might not be wrong just because a big chunk of our referrels come from HighSnobiety, whose readers have to be almost all guys.

Given the nature of this site, you would think I would read a website called KicksandChicks website regularly, but I don’t. Because even though I have no issue with women getting paid to model, if I’m going to look at images of women rocking kicks, they need to reflect a little more sincerity.

All that being said, this image and the link to the site are dedicated to our male readers. Thanks for your clicks and your interest!

BlackGirlintheCity: It Aint Over ‘Til It’s Over!”

20 April 2008, 02.34 | Posted in Books, Other | No comments »

BlackGirlintheCity is a site you visit when you’ve done all the pretty pictures and you find yourself hankering for something a little more substantial. Words that’ll actually make you think, ya know??

I linked to her hysterical recount of an encounter with a Marc-Jacobs-bag-owning idiot not long ago, but the story I’m linking to here is a little different. In it, she talks about shedding an ex. Like any good writer, she writes in layers and while she reveals what she believes are her own lessons, there’s plenty of space between the lines for us to draw our OWN conclusions.

Here’s an excerpt:

My ex has finally decided to move on.  Good for effing him!  Lol.  We were the best of friends with a strong history until true feelings got involved.  Its funny how people tend to be on their worse behavior when falling or being in love.

BlackGirlOverYou  BlackGirlintheCity: It Aint Over Til Its Over!

^^Dear BlackGirl: He so aint over you!

And as for her comment on Hillary, she said it, not me! And though I gave up using the word bitch as a 2008 resolution, I hafta admit Hill is pushing me to the damn edge!

Still missing you!

FemaleSneakerFiend: Super Shorty!

20 April 2008, 02.10 | Posted in Other, Sneakers | No comments »

While I’m traveling as promised, I left some posts for head blogger in charge, David, to put up. They’re mostly going to be recs for other sites that I read regularly and who have also given us links love. It’s the least I can do given that at the present moment don’t have a list of links on our site. (Big fat hint, David: We would like a favorite sites list AND to have our comments back!!)

Here’s an image from FemaleSneakerFiend, the all-time greatest site for ladies who love kicks, rivaled by none in all the land. It was founded and is run by Lori Lobenstine, who truely, and I know this to be a verifiable fact, has one of the biggest hearts in the world.

This image comes from “The Little Ones” gallery:

^^If this image doesn’t AT LEAST make you smile to yourself then please leave this site now because you heart is composed of pieces of Antartic rock and we don’t want you to freeze our site with the coldness of your gaze.

Miss you!
