Downtown Shoes


Shoes: Steve Madden


I love how different parts of the city have such different vibes! The shoes I wore here were perfect for Downtown, but Upper East Side? Probably not. Blair Waldorf, would not be seen in these! Although, I dont know, UES is getting a bit hipper these days, i.e Serena would possibly wear these. Sorry to those of you who dont watch Gossip Girl, as I doubt you had any clue what I was speaking of hereNot that I care, I would wear these shoes anywhere because I'm OBSESSED WITH THEM!! 

I also think its funny how much of an effect shoes have on the total vibe of an outfit....I could've worn black flats and had a completely different effect. These oxfords make me look a bit more hipster, like maybe I want to be in a band...hahaha....trust me, I'm not that cool! 

Regardless, I love them and they are so comfy for a day of strolling around the city while shopping for my hubby's Bday gift. Plus, I got a couple complements on them by random strangers today...BONUS!! 

Hipster-ish one day, Prissy the next....I LOVE not sticking to any particular style. Oh, and I owe a lot of my style versatility to blogging, so THANK YOU to all my readers for always encouraging, commenting and supporting, and also inspiring me to try new things!! XOXO!

  9. First of all, thank you for talking about Blair and Serena like we are all friends. I do the same thing. People sometimes look at me all crazy like...but I mean, if you don't watch gg, then YOU are the crazy one. RIGHTTTT? ;)

    Anyway. LOVE the shoes. They are perfect downtown kicks...and very hipsterish. I have some similar ones. They make me feel instantly awesome.

    And I am a style chameleon, too. What fun would it be to stick to one type? :)
