Toms Shoes

I just found this photo, by Brandon Long, on Flickr:

It’s amazing how everyone has gone mad for Toms shoes. It goes to show that comfort and function always win out. (Although, like most status symbols, they’re expensive!)

Here’s the pair I want:

Happy Friday, everyone. May you have lots of time to wear comfy shoes this weekend.

 

Matchbook Magazine: Old Hollywood

The August issue of Matchbook Magazine is out and it includes a lovely article by Katie Armour,
featuring the photos of Gray Malin

Malin calls the series of photos “A Timeless Pursuit”…

Although they’re taken in different locals, my favorites are the ones in Hollywood and Beverly Hills…

So much to love about LA.

What are you reading?

I just started Julie Orringer’s “The Invisible Bridge.” It’s a love story set in Budapest and Paris, and it looks amazing. I really need to get lost in a book at the moment.

What about you?
