Change of pace

#teenvogue // Zara top and coat, HM fur collar, Vintage bag, Nike Blazers. Diy ripped jeans

There a few things that this time last month I would never have even considered. Firstly, Crocs.
Always Crocs.
Secondly, and with a less severe distaste, Nike sneakers. However, I found myself contemplating spending around $150 on a pair of Steve Madden wedge sneakers, and then it hit me: why am I doing this? I'm a heels kinda gal, give me a 6" wedge and I'll give you a hug, but why would I try to make the comfiest shoe even slightly awkward? I was stuck, until I saw my friend   wearing her low Nike blazers (and then subsequently all my male friends, but alas, androgynous dressing is ok now). I went from being stuck, to sold. I ordered some the very same week (I got the high ones 'cause I'm a high top kinda chica, wouldn't want to bare my ankles and attract any unwanted attention eh eh). Not only are these minimalistic, stylish, cool and not-running-shoe-like but they're also so damn comfy my feet are purring.
Maybe that's my cat, whatever, she's happy so I am too.
Speaking of cats , happy Halloween! What are you dressing up as? My party isn't until Saturday, so stay tuned on instagram/twitter to see my costume. I've been at Press Days today so I'm too knackered to do anything truly festive other than scare the kids that come to the door.


Thanks to Shope and Shore for a lovely afternoon and taking this photo (and the hundreds of others...)

  8. I have to say you have sold me on the look of those sneakers - while it's not so much my style, they suit this look perfectly. As for crocs,the hello kitty and ballet flats aren't so bad haha

  11. Looove the cool look, I love what the sneaks do to the outfit! ♥ I love sneaks, I always go for hi-tops, cuz they have a cool look to it. Though I love guy hi-top sneaks, they're always cooler looking than girl's hi-tops, I've always felt this way since I was a kid. :D
    And lol @ unwanted attention of bare ankles, lol, you're funny. :D

    Eliza, thanks for your comment on my fall essential post! :)

  25. Omg I totes feel you hun. Crocs are a defo NO NO... I don't mind socks and sandals (high fashion kinds), they in and they're cool, but I just don't see how crocs can look chic, it looks retarded in any culture... Esp when worn with cargo shorts... ewww. I'm not much a sneaker person too despite the fact I'm a guy! I like my brogues, oxfords, creepers and wedges too! I like to stand tall, even if it hurts I'd smile and say "chic"! Btw, I recently got the chance to scope out the designer jewelry brand Mawi and their showroom, check it out!
