FYI: Running Shoes #IRL

Running shoes are having a serious fashion moment, and my soles (and soul) are incredibly thankful. The shoe that was once only acceptable at the bottom of your gym bag (or for dads on vacation) has managed to make itself a staple in the wardrobes of many of the fashion mafia. Naturally, I had to try it out for myself, and as predicted: my life was changed…#FORAVER read more…

FYI: Lessons From My Prom

Way back when in the old days (jk, last year) I went to prom and some very clear “I wish I would have __________” lessons were established. Everyone tells you to take lots of pictures, wear a corsage, and dance to early 2000s Bey, but there are a few other tips I wish I’d known. Although many things have changed since *2013* (like how ombre hair is no longer worn by everyone), much is the same. Something will probably go terribly wrong during your getting-ready process, the DJ might not get around to playing the best song ever that you requested, and your date might be MIA by 11 pm. Regardless, prom is your last official high school bash, and these lessons will help you make it memorable in a good way. read more…

Trend to Try: Shocking Socks

 

SOCKS

Socks – the most underrated & understated fashion accessory. We put them on every day without fail (unless of course we’re choosing their legged counterparts/going footie-commando), yet we forget to give them tender love and affection. Feet don’t want to be dressed down in basic black or washed-out white; they want to be fashionable like the rest of your body! They want to experiment with trends and be put on the best-dressed list of the Sock-ademy Awards red carpet! (PS. socks love carpets).

This morning, and the morning next, and every morning after that I dare you to be daring with your sock choices. There are literally thousands of cool socks out there calling your name. Cats? Check. Popsicles? Check. The loch ness monster? Double check. Socks are a really inexpensive way to dress up your outfit and add some life to your wardrobe. You may even be tempted to buy short pants and wear socks and sandals just to show ‘em off! read more…

Six Kinds of Mules I Want

As per my usual footwear crushes, my current mule shoe obsession has a couple of aspects that unquestionably validate why they’re they place so highly on my wishlist. It would be way too easy to be obsessed with the mules that are filling fashion weeks across the globe, and tell myself I can buy only ONE pair. The truth is that there are six VERY DIFFERENT mules that need to come live in my wardrobe now. So, before I head out on a very Carrie Bradshaw-esque shoe shopping venture, here are, like, the ~best mules ever~. read more…

Shoes: Silly or Genius?

Sometimes I wonder if shoe designers are in their studios laughing at us. We’ve tried some pretty silly trends over the years that felt genius at the time but in reality were actually really…not genius. The most annoying thing is that these not genius styles keep coming back into fashion like an annoying fly that just won’t go away. We need to decide once and for all if these shoe trends are silly or genius…and then make them leave our lives for all of eternity and BEYOND. Plz. read more…

Shoe DIY: Margiela for (much) less

Sometimes designers make things that make you absolutely speechless. Your eyes widen and your mouth hangs open as you marvel in how much genius was put into one garment. If it’s something complicated (I’m looking at you strapless Dior gown) you can only sob quietly to yourself every night as you clutch a magazine tear of the said item. Thankfully, there are less complicated designs that we can all DIY (no artistic skill required). I’m almost sure each and everyone of you have thought of this “Maison Martin Margiela x Converse” DIY already, but in case you haven’t, here’s the way to save yourself $200 (and the tears). read more…

10 Men's Shoes We Wish Were For Girls

If you’re a guy, rocking fabulous shoes usually requires you have to be pretty daring, very creative and extremely fashionable. If you’re a girl, rocking outlandish footwear is never too much of a problem, and as long as the pair falls within the perimeters of our ~~personal style~~/we think they’re pretty), we’ll hardly have any reservations. To continue our very public footwear envy, here is a list of shoes that we, as females, would have no problem wearing…EVEN THOUGHT THEY’RE NOT MEANT FOR US. read more…

Wear Everywhere Shoe: Birkenstock


So, the infamous dad sandal is rising in popularity. Before you cringe and wrinkle your nose, ask yourself this: why shouldn’t they be?
