KICK FLIC of the WEEK.

So, the Olympics are in full swing and so are the collaborations, i.e. Adidas x Opening Ceremony. The sneakers are pretty fresh, very different from the typical Adidas Hi Top, which I am always a fan of. The color ways, the floral prints, the Hi Top Samba? Ah hello, I’m a life long soccer player and the Samba has always been a top Adidas fav, but I’ve never seen it as a hi top and I must say ooh la la I’m in love. The clear gum colored, rubber sole is ri-donk-u-lous, love, love, love it long time… plus the added splash of floral print on the classic 3-stripe, wow. 

Thank you, thank you Adidas x Opening Ceremony for such a lovely and unique new look for Adidas, on some classics in some very non traditional versions.

FLAT-tery, will get you EVERYWHERE!

Boom Bam Back at it again, Mista Lova Lova aka Jeffrey Campbell to all ya’ll living on the moon who don’t know who the man is. 

He doeth very little wrong in my little black book of shoes, and the Skulltini is just a lithe reminder ladies of why you need to keep yo’ shoe game TIGHT! Let me repeat… TIIIIGHT!

I always discuss how flats do absolutely nothing for me, literally I’m 5’1 on a good day and I like to keep everything lengthy if you know what I mean. But give me a stud, a gold stud at that with multiples all over and SheRocS says, YUM YUM YUM GIMME SOME!

The red w/gold and black w/gold are obviously my favs, but the white are super dope too… I mean there is always a lil room in the shoe closet for flats right? They barely take up any room at all, so who’s to deny giving them a happy home and warm feet to slip onto every now and then?

Surely not I… surely not I.

BIG KISSES Mr. JC! 

Skulltini  $159.95

To Stuff or Not to Stuff?

UBIQ – Fatima Kitty

  $254.95

I’m not really sure how sold I am on all these stuffed animal so-to-speak sneakers. As my friends, family and fellow blog followers probably know, I am definitely into the more adventurous, colorful, fun side of fashion, but I don’t quite know what to do with these stuffed animal kicks, let alone pay $254.95 for them. 

Love leopard, love pink, actually do like the white and black versions as well, I mean what girl at some point in time hasn’t liked Hello Kitty, or in UBIQ’s case, “Fatima Kitty“… I mean really, don’t lie ladies… this is actually kinda cute.

I think the outfit worn with this would have to be severely toned down and let these be the ‘statement’ pieces… but I feel like they may actually be growing on me. Jeremy Scott obviously the trend setter in this department with Adidas, but others are catching on my friend…who knew our childhood stuffed animal favs and their heads would wind up attached to our feet and rocked as a 2012 fashion accessory?


1/2” platform. Fabric upper and man made sole. Fits small. In between sizes should order up! Size US8 (EU 38) insole measures at 9 3/8 inches or 23.5cm. Each half size is 1/4 inch or 1/2cm difference. 


HIGH KICKS.

Ok, ok… so I was so not a fan of the Isabel Marant hidden wedge sneakers when they came out. I am a loyal 80%20 fan and to me it was a total bite on the design that Ce Ce Chin has been doing for YEARS now… so needless to say I was annoyed some big money brand comes along and totally knocked off what she has worked so hard to create. So, basically I shamed all the wedged sneakers that were coming out.

Alas, Italy. Oh the Italian (I’m so sorry Ce Ce) but these Serafini Wedged Sneakers I can definitely get with. They for sure give off a more “real” sneaker vibe vs the more ‘shoe’ looking sneaker – it’s an art hiding that wedge in the shoe it really is and the Serafini Manhattan’s are the bomb. I heart them dearly as a ‘true’ sneaker head, I truly do.

Job well done Serafini, still a bite off 80%20 but if you’re going to pay homage to someone else’s work, this is the way to do it.

– white leather
– red and blue suede
– inside wedge: 7cm
– rubber sole
