Currently Obsessed …

… with metallic Sperry Topsiders. Evan snapped this photo of me wearing them in Paris. Matching reflections!

Okay, so why a photo of me wearing shoes?

About a month ago, I was invited to share my obsessions on a site called Currently Obsessed. You can see my page here.

It’s reminiscent of Pinterest, but it’s entirely product-based, and serves as a place to share the things you currently have or covet. You can “stalk” your favorite bloggers.

My first reaction was “who needs another platform?” But the more I thought about it, the more I liked it. It’s a way for me to share things I rarely talk about here on the blog, and I’m always interested in what my favorite bloggers are coveting or wearing. In fact, when I first started reading blogs, it’s what I enjoyed the most.

Having said that, I’m not a big fan of blogs that only focus on products, which is why I’ve chosen not to talk about them here very often or at all. But I do like sharing a good shoe find, and I’m always on top of the latest breaking beauty trends because I write about them for a living. To be honest, once in awhile, I miss my Bravo TV beauty and fashion blogging years.

Currently Obsessed is a shopping platform that allows bloggers to recommend products like a personal shopper would. So in the interest of full disclosure, if you buy something you like, I get a small referral fee.

I’m excited to have a place where I can share products I have bought, want to buy, or recommend without having to work them into my content here on the blog. Once in a while I may point out something special, but if you are interested in the things I’m obsessed with, you should stalk me on my page.

I’ll also always have a link to it here on the blog (it’s currently in the sidebar).

Happy stalking!

    So funny how many people love them. Remember when Sperrys were reserved for the uber preppy?

    This piqued my interest for I’m “obsessed” but usually by things which cannot be bought. Like words.
    I enjoy your blog and photography very much.

    I have them too! But don’t let them get wet–they lose some luster. Will check out currently obsessed.

    Lovin’ LBP!

    On you N, they are adorable! On me, I think not so much. I”m losing the “interest” in Pinterest. Somehow it’s all too glizty and perfect. Like the Stepford WIves of the internet. I”ll check out this new site though.

    I hope you shot yourself in these cute shoes while in Paris! :)

    I’m dating myself by admitting that the only Sperry Topsiders I’ve owned were in the 1980s when the choices were either dark brown or light brown. So happy they are back with such style! This photo is magical and might even tempt me into buying my second pair ever. Thanks also for the great recommendation (months ago) of the Nars Eros. I have been addicted ever since. I just wish it came in something other than pot form.
