It kind of bothers me when people ask their blog followers to vote for them, but I'm going to reason here that I just want a chic vote to get into the chic have gallery so I can at least be considered. I mean, the vote only places me eligible, right? Plus, I don't even think many people read my blog, but if you are out there, please vote :)

Jeffrey My Way
If I turned back the clock around 6 years ago right now, you would have found me either on my floor creating jewelry or hunched over a sewing machine. If you asked me what I wanted to be, the answer was fashion designer (specifically, accessories). Life is funny. I can't imagine my life any other way than it is now though. Although I always did well in school, I never had much interest in pursuing a traditional college degree, let alone a Ph.D., and I had no idea that I would one day aim to be an academic. My teenage dreams of becoming a designer are now just a distant memory to me. I'm not sad about it at all because I am happy to be where I am. I now actually study creativity, and channel most of my creativity towards research projects (on creativity!) and of course, my daily fashion choices. However, I had to jump at the chance to try my hand at designing a shoe for the Jeffrey My Way contest on Chictopia. My drawing skills are less than desirable, and I doubt I would ever win such a contest, but I decided either way it would be fun to create a shoe based on my life. So I combined geek (books and glasses) with the chic platform "foxy" skeleton.
