I created Exshoesme.com over six years ago, with the intention of having a neat place to put all the fashion stuff inside my head.

Fashion, in this day and age, is vast and information about it and its creators and collaborators comes at us en masse, through multiple mediums, in breaking news formats. It can be desensitizing. It can all become a blur, at the blink of an eye. It can become banal.

I have curated this space to make sense of that blurred flurry of information. I aim to bring you a glimpse of the culture of fashion, telling stories with its visual vocabulary, and sharing observations that are at times historical, at times whimsical, at times critical or analytical – but I hope, always entertaining.

You might also find a few lines of poetry, a brief art history tour, or a handful of obscure song lyrics along the way.

Care to walk with me?
