I saw images of these custom-made Hermes Vans yesterday and was practically dying. I don’t really wear flats, like, ever, but I might make an exception for these gorgeously patterned skate shoes, which were custom created by Vans for stylist Robert Verdi.

I love shopping, which is a shame because I’ve been a shopping idiot for most of my life. I have lots of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories and jewelry. Until recently, though, I was one of those people who never owned any stockings or white cotton T-shirts — yet I had an emerald-colored cocktail dress that… READ MORE »
