Looking festive and still individual! 3 looks to help you out!

Allgemein

Now that the festive season starts, we can all assure, that wearing green, gold and tartan is totally ok and even required. It’s not like wearing these kind of colour combinations is bad, i surely get crazy everytime i see red tartan blankets or socks. But we should still have the ambition to not look like predicted or at least not appear in a little black dress nor ugly sweater (which might be fun also!). It should not be too hard to stay true to your style, but still look festive. THATS TRUUE!   I created a few examples and tried to find as many sale items as possible. So here it goes!

This is for the more brave ones! Of course there needs to be one piece that reminds us of what we celebrate. Hence the proper classy cableknits and knitwear!

  1. The no-discussion-needed-let-my-style-talk LOOK!

As a non believer in terms of „comfort goes over appearance“, i do have to deal with my decision on a daily basis. Feet do not want to be abused and squeezed into tiny pointed heels (thanks balenciaga, the 2000’s and my addiction) and  it still seems impossible for me to find a right pair of sneakers. I know, it may appear so easy, just go get a pair of stan smiths you might say, or buy these nikes, they are so retro now with all their 1970’s designs being brought back to you. Or not. All in all their comfortable and thats what they all should be about. I would love to to be thinking like that, but i definitely am not capable of seeing one more of the aforementioned shoes, let alone on my feet. I definitely do not want to make it sound like i’m too cool for sneakers. I just can’t handle wearing shoes, everyones wearing. Yes, one of my biggest (and most expensive) weaknesses.
Anyway, i wouldn’t right about all this, if there wasn’t a solution for all of this.
Until recently i was in strong belief wearing designer sneakers was a mum thing. No offense to any stylish mums wearing designer sneakers. I get you know. Apparently the whole athletics trend overrunning the runways led to some pretty good examples. First, the asians got me with their style again, while i was in milan running around on a fair. I saw them on her. It was true beauty. And they were sneakers. Impossible for me to find out which brand they were from, i had to follow said women for almost 10 minutes. I still couldn’t see the designers label or recognize its design. Devastated, i gave up. No chance to find them anymore, might be a still foreign but so cool label from the far east, i thought. But then, there was this mall. I saw them right under the very famous skull heads of our beloved Alexander Mcqueen. And their it all started. The upcoming days i was searching for similar looking or lets better say, design worthy sneakers and i have found so many.
So please, do yourself a favor and change your Stan Smiths. They deserve a pause.

It’s not officially sale season, but anyway. We still found some!

Without starting with all that talk about how important shoes and handbags are and what good investments one can make with them, because you will wear them for ages and how they will always be classics, i will deny it straight forward. Actually there are no good investments with designer shoes.

No shoe can be worth 900$. I know it. It does not make any sense. Not to humankind.
Still, though. I do not write this stuff to be rational or reasonable.
The only reasonable thing is, buying them when they’re on sale.
Which is officially not the case right now, buuuut some shops started, so why wait and why talk more, just look at what i found. All under 500$.
