Meet Shawn, with the “fancy little shoes.” I found him at Trader Joe’s. To take a second for a humble-brag, our shoes looked really, really good together. Mine are from Three Sixty Ecotique, and Preston’s took care of repairing the soles. Such a fun find! Shawn’s are from Urban Outfitters.

So, you’re from China, right? What brought you to California? How did you end up in Chico?

Yes, ma’am. There are some reasons, but majorly is that I’m attending school in Butte College. Good question, I think it’s that I got lost one day driving from Southern California, and my car went on autopilot at night. Then I ended up in Chico in the morning the next day.

Tell me three songs you love.

Tom Waits– “Coney Island Baby”

Galaxie 500– “King of Spain”

Lou Reed– “Berlin”

Where did you get those fantastic shoes? Where did you get the rest of your outfit? That striped shirt?

I’ve purchased them on Urban Outfitter’s site online. The rest of my outfit is also from Urban, except the striped shirt. The shirt is from CK.

Jen Cartier misses Chico! However, she has taken to the great beyond (er...The Bay Area) to be some kind of chocolate maven while simultaneously figuring out how the hell to navigate her long-ass work commute, and still kick ass at raising three munchkins, loving one soon-to-be husband, and keeping one rascally Brittany Spaniel in the damned yard. She loves Nutella, red wine, and American Spirits. She takes her dog along on runs to wear him out (sometimes he shits in someone else's yard - bonus!) and also to balance her own general consumption of all the fine tasty things life offers, ciggys included.
