Kicks





jacket - Asos, jeans - Hudson, t-shirt, hat & rings- H & M, Chism sneaker wedges - Aldo, clutch - Topshop

Sneaker Wedges. When they first became trendy I couldn't decide if I liked them or not.  Kind of like the Jefferey Campbell Lita's that were oh so popular a couple of years ago, that I never ended up buying mostly because the heel was way too high for me and I could see many face plants and chiropractic appointments in my near future if I purchased them. But seeing sneaker wedges looking fab on other bloggers and fashion peeps convinced me to give give them a try and I'm so glad I did. These ones, from Aldo, are so comfortable (and I'm all about the comfort) and I like how I can wear sneakers and still look tall! I know they're a trend right now and may go out of style within a year or two, which is why I decided not to pay an arm and a leg for them. I like to invest in pieces that will never go out of style and spend less money on the trends. And that's what I encourage my clients to do too. 9 times out of ten they listen to me ; ).

Side note: See the background in my photos? That's our brand new, 2-car garage that was built by D. and his Dad. With their very own hands! Pretty cool, hey?

You look so bad ass in this outfit - and I think you're pulling off the wedge sneakers beautifully. Who cares if they eventually pass into trend history, I think you'll always be able to make them work.

I saw your snap of this outfit on instagram and had to come by to see the full post - that sequinned Rolling Stones t-shirt is amazing! And I have to admit, although I'm not on board with wedge sneakers, yours are one of the loveliest and most elegant pairs I've seen yet. And the comfort thing is always a huge plus :)

I love this look on you! And yea, I like these way more than the Lita trend, though I'm not sure I'll buy them for myself because I don't really wear sneakers that much
Woohoo for your new garage!

Love the whole outfit! The jacket and shoes just make it for me. I got a pair of wedge sneakers myself because I loved the Isabel Marant style and I have to agree they are incredibly comfy. Almost debating getting another pair in-case my current ones get worn out!

P.s. thanks for checking out my blog!

Tanya said...

I saw these sneaks at Aldo today and grabbed them right away (thinking of your blogpost). But they cost way too much here, over 160 US$. So I put them back on the shelf :( Will have to look for other options.

Marie a la Mode said...

Tanya: Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that! Usually things are way more expensive in Canada than they are in the U.S. but I guess in this case, Aldo's a Canadian company so it's reversed. Maybe you can find a similar pair for less money? Good luck!

J. said...

Great shoes! They are like the perfect combination....Comfortable and give some height! Love your hard core outfit! :)
Also brownie points to D. for your new Garage! :) YEA!
