Valentino Neon Flats. You Heard Me. NEON. Say what!
These flats are out of control and I mean that in the best possible way. I've already shown these and made appearances on my Instagram here and here, but I am still enthused. I am rarely in flats and I absolutely adore having additional height on me, but I am totally digging these Valentino flats. I truly love the confidence that heels bring and the higher they are, the better. I am known for trotting down the pavement in my 6" sky-rocket Prada platforms that absolutely kill my feet, but with that very same resilience, they also allow me to run to my meetings around town looking proper, pulled-together and oh-so-chic (entirely worth it). However, I will say that nothing compares to having bright, neon, rock-studded flats on your feet (at least for a day or two or three). Don't be surprised if I also sleep in them. I mean that in all seriousness.
On another note, here are a few articles that I read this past week:
- A must-read for anyone who has previously raised capital, interested in raising capital or interested in the start-up space in general here
- New start-up Glimpse that was blowing up my news feed
- uBeam prototype for wireless charging here that is totally rad
- One of my favorite authors, Malcom Gladwell, on Why Entrepreneurs should be Troublemakers here. "..."The most successful business leaders are not people who require the social approval of their peers to go forward with an idea, and that’s a very rare trait."
- My friend Sam sent me an article on running from The New Yorker archives that I spoke about last week. I have been really into running lately and I recently went from running a mere 35k a week at the beginning of June to now running about 10k a week. Running is something that I have recently developed a large amount of respect for and have found that I quite enjoy. Haruki Murakami writes a great reflection about his experience with running that may just inspire you to run too. Thanks Sam!
- Also a very funny article about VC Tim Draper in Vogue here and how to dress in California's "six" different states
