Happy Saturday, Stylistas!
I can vividly remember vacationing in New York in the late eighties, walking amongst a sea of business women wearing sneakers with formal business suits. This was the trend and necessary to save their pretty little feet from the agony of pain during long treks from the subway to the office. In 2016, sneakers have become the “new” stiletto for some.
Personally, I’ve always liked the look of sneakers with dresses or skirts or whatever else I choose to wear them with! I’m okay with being called goofy or looking odd. Some will love the look, while others will hate it and that’s the price you pay for having your own personal style. Have the courage to stand out from the crowd and be the best version of yourself.
My favorite sneaker is the Converse All Star, better known as the “Chuck Taylor.”
Quick fact: Converse are the oldest, most popular and all time best selling basketball shoe of all time! 60% percent of all Americans own or have owned at least one pair! Converse come in all colors, prints, high tops, low tops and can even be customized with leather skins and artwork.
Converse are my weekend obsession and I love them, but nothing can ever, ever take the place of this woman’s stiletto! I’m just saying.
Until next time, peace and blessings!
