emma: day 7 \ shoeaday
on tuesday morning, i woke up somewhere between here and here. it was a don’t mess with me day: don’t look at me on the street, don’t put your newspaper in my face on the metro and certainly don’t smile at me. i needed my armor. enter my limited edition sailor jerry chuck’s with the eagle stitched on the back and “death or glory” printed on the side.
these shoes are left over from a past life, but i will be forever infatuated with them. i used to be a lot of things: punk, goth, industrial, riotgrrl, indie. we all had our darker days, right? RIGHT? now, i’m just me – or a hipster. whatever. we’re in a post-post- society, right? RIGHT? that’s it, i’m out.
