She needs new shoes




Photos by Elle.o.kitty


Oh no!  This is Pippi Longstocking.  She is one of our dear friends and lives in the Los Angeles area.   About a week ago, she had an accident and lost one toe and hurt her back paw.  The team wants to let you know that they are working on a new design just for her.  
 They'll have to wait until the bandages come off and the swelling reduces, or the shoes will be too big for her.
Kisses and Shoes,
Rocio
ps If you are wondering what happened, it was a shopping accident.  Don't make her feel worse about it, though.
¡Que lastima!  Ella es Pippi Longstocking.  Una de nuestras querides amigas y vive en Los Angeles.  Hace como una semana tuvo un accidente y perdio un dedito y se lastimo la patita de atrás.  Nuestro equipo esta trabajando en un nuevo diseño para ella.  Pero se tendran que esperar hasta que le quiten sus vendas y se le baje la hinchazón.

pd fue un accidente de compras., pero no hay q hacerla sentir mal 

Project runway

A few weeks ago I wrote about a friend that was thinking of trying out for Project Runway.
I wonder if this is how the interview process will go?

Hace un par de semanas, escribí de una amiga que estaba pensando aplicar para el show Project Runway.  ¿Me pregunto si así es como el proceso de la entrevista irá?

The car

Meet the Bel Air.
I love this little car. It's leaking transmission fluid. It's on the to do list, but I have other wrenching projects ahead of this one. Also, for this car on the to-do list: check the carb, I think it could do with a rebuild. At least a few new gaskets. It has a cast iron manifold. I would like to switch that to an aluminum. It's lighter in weight, and I think that might help me get one more mile to my gallons! This car is gluttonous when it comes to petrol.
Hugs, kisses and Shoes,
Rocio
Les presento el Bel Air.
Me encanta este carrito. Es voraz con la gasolina. Tiene fuga de aceite de transmisión. Lo tengo en lista de mis cosas de reparar, pero tengo otras cosas por encima.

Clare and the Reasons





Their tunes are as sweet as the shoes she is wearing in this shoot!
I did an interview a month or two ago and the reporter and I got to talking about music. Everything influences me when I design my shoes, and of course music. I told her about Clare & The Reasons.

¡Sus melodías son tan dulces como los zapatos que lleva en este rodaje!
Hice una entrevista hace un o dos meses atrás, y la periodista y yo nos pusimos a hablar de música. Todo me influye cuando diseño mis zapatos, y pues claro, musica. Le hablé de Clare & The Reasons.

David Sedaris





David Sedaris. I'm sooooo excited to see him tomorrow. I travel with David all of the time, it's not my fault he doesn't know it.

David, did you know that I take you to Italy quite frequently? I think you and I have also spent a few weeks in Mexico.
Hugs, kisses and Shoes,
Rocio

David Sedaris. Estoy taaaaan emocionada de verlo mañana. Viajo con David todo el tiempo, que lastima que el no se a enterado.

David, ¿sabías que te llevo a Italia bastante frecuencia? Creo que tu y yo hemos pasado unas semanas en México.

Ninjas vs Pirates!

I did a Ninjas vs Pirates ride this Sunday.  

This is my take on what my pirate ship would be like (on two wheels)










Atendí el paseo Ninjas contra Piratas en bicis.  

Mi versión si tuviera un barco pirata (en dos ruedas)



Yes, that is a mast with Shoe and Cross Bones Flags.  
Mástil con un zapato y tibias cruzadas.

Here's the story of how the battle went...
Aqui tienes el cuento de la batalla...








Sweet Victory!

The boots are Yves Saint Laurent, I got them a lifetime ago, before I went off to learn shoe making.
The trousers are from Venice, 8€ !!! How great is that?
The vest was a cheap cardigan from Express, I cut off the arms and made a vest.
The shirt and headscarf (it's really a swimsuit wrap) are from HM in Milan.


Las botas son Yves St. Laurent, las compre hace una vida, antes de empezar mis estudios de calzado. 
Pantalones los compre en Venecia, 8€!!!
El chaleco era un suetercillo chimbo de Express, lo corte e hice un chaleco.
La blusa y la pañoleta (que la verdad es un encubrimiento, je je je) es de HM Milano. 

My flag again:

Helmet, day...

¿Que? ¡Todavía estoy esperando mi casco!

Animal Style!

Oh boy, I really love burgers, and wish I was near an IN n Out so I could order a burger.  I settled for playing with my shoes.  Yup, I really do have fun with my shoes.  Here's my Animal Style inspired shoes:

Como me encantan las hamburguesas, y en este momento deseo estar cerca de un In n Out para pedir unas de sus hamburguesas, Animal Style.  Termine jugando con mis zapatos. Si, me divierto con mis zapatos.  Aqui tenéis como me inspiro Animal Style:

Julieta Venegas

Julieta Venegas image from her Official Fan Page, but her footwear has been improved by me.

Yay!  I went to see Julieta Venegas Sunday evening.  She really puts on a fantastic performance!  I love love love her music!  I tend to have an English, Spanish, Italian and Japanese favourite, and she's definitely my favourite for Spanish.
Also, consider this, she has a music video where girls eat flowers and, um, well, fart butterflies.  How could anyone not love that?!?  Yay her!
Doesn't she look great in my shoes?  I think so.
Hugs, Kisses and Shoes,
Rocio

¡Yey! Fui al concierto de Julieta Venegas este domingo.  Que concierto tan bueno.  

Tiendo a tener un artista favorito en Inglés, Español, Italiano y Japonés, y ella definitivamente es mi favorita de la musica que escucho en Español.Además, toma en cuenta esto, ella tiene un video musical donde las chicas comen flores y,  ejem, bueno, ¡se pedan mariposas
¿No luce muy bien en mis zapatos? Creo que sí.

Rockers vs Mods, Mustard is a Winner!

  


  



Well, this is a little late, but  I feel that  I should continue sharing the news. It's not everyday that Mustard Asshole wins a trophy.  A couple of years ago, Mustard won a trophy for Rockers vs Mods.  It won for the best Mod, but I think Mustard is a pretty Rocking scooter, so the trophy really could go either way.  Also, those Rockers really do love the Mods. Don't believe me? Check this picture out:
Hugs, kisses and Shoes,
Rocio

Bueno, pues esto llego un poco tarde, pero creo que debo continuar de comentar las buena noticias.  No es cada día que Mustard As-hole gana un trofeo. Hace dos años Mustard gano primer lugar entre Rockers vs Mods.  Gano por ser mejor Mod, pero sinceramente creo que Mustard e un Motorino super chévere y puede ganar bajo las dos categorias.  Ademas, esos Rockeros verdadera mente quieren a los Mods, no crees? Mirar la foto de abajo:

What is he doing to that poster of me on that Awesome trophy winning scooter?

¿Qué está  haciendo a ese cartel de mí  en la moto ganadora?

Oh boy, it's been two years since I got my Laura Smith helmet (pictured), and now it's time for something new. I am quite excited about the new one, will post images of it tomorrow.

Uy, hacen dos años con mi casco Laura Smith (visto en la foto) y ya es hora de algo nuevo.  Pronto verán fotos del nuevo.

Project Runway



I have a friend that is quite talented with a needle and thread. Gloria Rose. She mentioned on Facebook that she is thinking of trying out for Project Runway. I jumped in and suggested that I will sponsor her with my *shoes* if she makes it on the show! How is that for incentive? I am very excited for her. 
Hugs, kisses and Shoes,
Rocio


Tengo una amiga que le sobra talento con hilo e aguja. Gloria Rose. Mencionó en FaceBook que está pensando de entrar al concurso de television, Project Runway. Para dar animo, sugerí patrocinarla con *mis zapatos* si la elijen para el show! Estoy muy emocionada por ella!
