Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Marcelle and she hated wearing sneakers until she met these sneaker wedges which are pretty much high tops with a concealed wedge. She was completely intrigued by this new creation. She HAD to see what all the hype was about so she bought a pair in black from Steve Madden and when she put them on they turned her into a cool princess with sneakers on. They were just right mix of athletic/cool/laid-back and girly-ness. This made Marcelle very happy because now she has a pair of shoes she can wear to lab that actually look good not to mention the fact that she became a cool princess (with sneakers on). Marcelle and the sneaker wedges then lived happily ever after. (woohoo)
Moral of the story is, those shoes are amazingly amazing and trending this season. For those of you who follow me on Facebook (If you don't you are totally missing out on extra awesomeness so LIKE MY PAGE HERE and dont forget to follow me on BLOGLOVIN'), I put up a picture of Isabel Marant Sneaker wedges which I think started this whole trend. Over the summer, several of the "elite" bloggers wore them and I was little iffy about the whole concept. I mean, the only time i ever wore sneakers around was to the gym or PE or something related to fitness. I would never dream of owning a pair for everyday use (just because its not really me, not that they are not cool lol). However, when I got back to Bean Town, I decided to give it a shot and honestly, the investment paid off. Now, I'm looking for a pair in Burgundy or red and cobalt blue :). Be prepared to see these babies in several posts to come :)
Here are some options in a wide price range. So if you like what you see, feel free to click any of these:
Honestly just google "sneaker wedge" or "wedge sneaker" and a bunch of options will come up but these are the most popular ones.
Anyhu, today was soooo productive, I am so proud of myself. I got so much work done plus I'm almost done with my lab report (YESSSSS) :) Oh and last weekend I had an awesome shoot with Obinna Ukwuani. I was pretty excited because I helped out with it creatively and stylistically. Yup - i styled my very first shoot using pieces of chiffon and tulle. It kind of inspired me to learn how to sew, I think it would save me a lot of money if I made my own clothes. I'm excited to see what comes out. Be sure that you all will be the first to see le results :)
SN: Funny thing, I look tired in these pictures but I got so much sleep the night before....Weird huh? lol
Laters babies :)
PS: Sorry for the inconsistency in le look but it was cold and I had my scarf, my faux fur, my jacket and my black and white wallet thingy so I figured I would try le dress with all of 'em. ok, goodnight! :)
PPS: I realize i talk too much in my posts these days, to those who actually read these I apologize lol, Sundays are just caffeine-intensive days and this always turns out to be an outlet for all my energy.
