dressed up like a lady: My favorite Vans

My favorite Vans

I don't have any tattoos, but I never seemed to outgrow inking my shoes. I drew all over my first pair of Chuck Taylors when I was nine, and I don't think there's been a time since when I haven't been in the present course of covering a particular pair of unisex sneakers with ultra-fine Sharpie doodles up until such a time as that particular pair wears out. I'm currently on these classic Vans. It takes, on average, a couple of years of consistent doodling to cover a pair of shoes completely, by which time the shoes are often pretty beat, but I'm quite attached to these ones, so maybe I'll be a little more careful with them.

Do you have anything in your own closet that you've covered in scribbles?


  1. they are so cool!!!!


  2. I love these! It's so much fun to have such an individual piece of clothing. Thank you for your comment, I'm ashamed to admit that I never thought of eating a crushed cupcake (or indeed any cupcake!) with ice cream! It's such a good solution :)
