#TBT Guess what sandals are coming back?!

Just in time for #ThrowbackThursdays Steve Madden has announced that they are bringing back a pair of sandals that I am sure we all have had at one point. If you were into platforms back then, you must have had these. But honestly even if you’re not into platforms like that, look at how cute and minimalistic these are?!

Steve Madden calls these the “Slinky” sandals. As of right now they only have them in Black with a 2.25 inch heel height + 1.25 inch platform with a comfortable stretchy material on top. These will go great with the already trending tinted glasses and stretchy dresses that bring back the 90s! The price: $69.95. Even though I am finding out about these right now, they will not be releasing them until July! Howeverr you can preorder them here!

#TuesdayShoesday New Ankle Boot Trend

You are about to see these ankle boots everywhere! At first when you see these you may think they are old school but no they are the IT ankle boots right now. That different looking heel is known as the cone heel and if you really look at them they offer you the best of both worlds, giving you a little stiletto while still giving you the support a thick, block heel will give.

I love how Givenchy creatively designed the cone heel here in this leather and suede ankle boot but at this $500 price tag not all of us can own these beauties.

givenchy

I found a couple you can actually own IRL! Luckily I found one in leather and another in suede, that I personally like and am sure that you would also like. (If you would like another type of style or anything just let me know & I will find them for you 😉 )

Zara $140
Zara Leather Ankle boots with straps & them zippers! $140
Topshop $150
Topshop ‘Mikey Cone Heel Boots’ in beautiful color bordeaux $150

 

How do you feel about them ladies? Would you try these cone heel ankle booties??

#FF Zayn X Giuseppe Zanotti

zaynsneakers

Zayn Malik, as many of you may know for his music, has also been venturing out in fashion. Zayn is debuting his shoe line with Giuseppe Zanotti! It only makes sense that these two work together because they are both into the edgy side of fashion. As said so by himself,

“I like to work with musicians because we share a very similar vision,” said Zanotti. “[Zayn and I] have always had an appreciation for one another, but it was during our first encounter in Paris that we realized we had a similar attitude and approach: iconic, edgy, and expressive. Zayn’s bold and individualistic vision, easy coolness, and love for fashion mean a lot to me.”

Zayn has also said himself,

“I like things which are a bit dark and weird, and Mr. Zanotti isn’t afraid to play with those elements either. The process of designing my collection has been really fun as a result!”

Every one in fashion can see that Zayn Malik is rising in the fashion world with this Giuseppe Zanotti collaboration and also with his upcoming Versus Versace collabo as well. Let’s hope that he succeeds in this industry, best of luck!

#TuesdayShoesday

These were the heels that I put together with my NYE outfit (which surprisingly I didn’t go shopping for this year!) Instead I put these beauties together with this beautiful dress that I actually found with tags in my closet! Don’t you just love how some things although unplanned just come together so nicely?!

With more time on my IG for exploring, I noticed how these beauties were also worn by many other ladies! This was clearly not my intention, for those that know me, know that even though I stay on top of the trends, I don’t like to wear everything that everyone is wearing! But tbh who can’t love these?! I myself have actually been obsessed with clear, lucite heels and or shoe designs for some time now so once I saw them make a comeback I just had to buy!
There are a couple of sites where you can find these or ones similar to these and in different price spectrums as well

Sneaker Con is coming to town!

Yes “Sneaker Con”! I am going to be honest, I myself, am not a sneakerhead of any kind so important events like this passes right by me but this year I have expanded my shoe spectrum more and am looking more into sneakers every day!

Next IT sneakers?

If you have even been outside of your house for even a few minutes you must have seen how adidas sneakers are everywhere right now! It all started with the Stan Smiths and then it seemed to have moved onto the Superstars. But now some models have been seen with these which make me wonder are these the next sneakers I’m going to be seeing around soon

Here you see Gigi Hadid wearing Reebok’s. Reebok’s Classic Leather Sneakers in Rose Gold Pearl for $105.

I have already talked in previous posts about my new obsession of rose gold and now these sneakers come out on my radar! Click on the name to be directed to site where you can buy them from…You can also find them in 3 other colors here ; “Rose Gold Implusive,” (bright rose gold) “Sensation,” (gold) and “Silver Presence” (silver) each for $75

#TBT Back to the Future!

I love talking about how fashion and technology go hand in hand. Just last week I was talking about the first robot sneaker, Adidas’ Futurecraft MFG and now the Back to the Future sneaker is out! I, myself, am a fan of the Back to the Future series and I think it is cool how they are bringing back the sneaker. The one Michael J. Fox in “Back to the Future Part II” to be exact. Their name “Nike Mags.” These self lacing, yes self lacing kicks are the wave of the future!

However, the bad news is that these are not just being sold to the general public, there are only 89 pairs being raffled. Why only 89 pairs? Because the movie came out in 1989. Good news, you can enter the raffle at just $10, and there is no entry limit. Even better, all proceeds go to the Fox’s Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. You can also read up more for the foundation at michaeljfox.org.

Interested in getting your own? You can put in your raffle entry or entries by visiting HERE and clicking “Take Part” or by logging into Nike+ App. The draw began October 4th – October 11th. If you won, you will be notified October 17th.

First Robot Sneaker!

Adidas has been getting in on the “robotic revolution” and has unveiled their first robot-manufactured sneakers. These were made in a “SPEEDFACTORY” in Germany.

mfg

This sneaker is considered a running sneaker, excuse me “a high performance running shoe.” The name: “FUTURECRAFT M.F.G” – what does that stand for? Made for Germany. The MFG is “a running shoe that sports Adidas’ trademark Primeknit upper and 3D printed Boost midsole.”

How exclusive? Only 500 pairs exclusive. For now anyway but have no fear we can expect more in 2017 after the SPPEDFACTORY in the US opens.

Adidas’ goal: “This is where imagination meets innovation. It’s where we expose the illusion of impossible and venture beyond the limits defined by the past. It’s a place to disturb the present and create the future.” I think they have reached their goal.

Other than the obvious, that they look good – sidenote what about all the jobs that these robots will be taking?? Definitely something to think about…

#FF Zara got all your Fall trends!

I personally love Zara, a few of my favorite pieces are from Zara! Love the fact that they have most of this Fall trends too!

That shine: Shining bright like a diamond has been on trend for some time now and it is continuing into the fall! Remember the last post of this summer’s IT dress ? Also about accessories ? Well shine is not going anywhere and as mentioned before it shouldn’t be reserved for just going out. Wear that shine out during the day & how about with a pair of jeans!?

Denim Daze: As if I haven’t talked about it enough about how denim is going to be all over the place! They are getting more creative with how to decorate your jeans like the patches in previous post. (DIY) Zara also have great jeans like these two toned ones for about $50:

Also love this Looney Tunes Denim jacket, just look at front & back! 😜

Athleisure: Athleisure is another trend that isn’t going anywhere! Remember those joggers that we all love? Well now they are adding more to the athleisure category. Try these jogger trousers, yes jogger trousers that you can even wear to work! I can definitely see myself rocking them with just about all types of shoes! These are $50. Also check out their sweatsuit doesn’t it remind you of Kill Bill?! 😂

Ballet: Yes, you will be seeing wrap tops, ballet shoes, and tulle skirts that you can imagine a ballet dancer wearing! All of these definitely promote slim silhouettes! Let’s not forget leggings..who doesn’t love leggings? I also love these ballet shoes, I am speaking from experience when I say their shoes are legit great quality! 👍🏼
