Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

City Slicker (or below...)

Hey all!  Check out my sick new kicks!!! 

I started seeing these hidden-wedge sneakers a few months ago in street-stle photos and such.  My first reaction was "ew"...ohhh how times change!  :)  The more I saw them styled and worn by others, I started to love the funky-casual vibe they add to an outfit.  Here's my attempt at styling them. 

I tackled a lot of trends in this outfit: dorky crewneck sweatshirt, leather skirt, metallics, and, of course, the kicks.

Semi-funny story:

These pictures were taken after Piera took me out to the cutest little diner up in Madison (I went to visit her for the weekend).  However, I'm surprized I don't look like a complete wreck, because just before lunch, I went hypoglycemic!  I fainted for the first time in my life!  It was crazy!  I sat on Piera's bathroom floor (in this outfit nonetheless) nom-ing on chocolate and an entire loaf of French bread for 15 minutes afterward.  French bread and chocolate apparrently have magical properties of healing!  But everybody already knew that, right?

  1. Of course they have magical powers! And you are right, you look great, not as a wreck at all. You are rocking those sneakers, I really like this outfit.


  2. Love the sneakers <3 ! Yes times change they do, I think so everytime I see those (actually my 1st wedge sneakers spotting was in the late 1990's in a thrift store, and the sneakers were from the 1970s and I considered them horrid. Then I wore wedged sneakers in Japan 3 years ago - obviously I had got used to the idea after the 70's horror XD - but my japanese sneakers died so I wonder should I buy new ones now.)
    Ow - fainted! I think you should see the doc just in case if you didn't :0 ?! Take care!

  3. Seriously cool kicks! Wow, there isn't an outfit on earth that these wouldn't inject a huge dose of eye-catching shine to it.
