Regular readers of this blog will know that I shop online a lot (yeah, I might be a bit of an online shopping addict. So I decided to start a weekly series of things I've been lusting over in the world of fashion & beauty - sometimes based on a theme, sometimes a mish-mash.
This week I was obviously feelin' the sneakers & pointed flats. Three out of four of these are available online too, if you're #FeelingSpendy ;)
1. Adidas Superstar II Women's Sneakers
This season white sneakers have been a huge trend & I think they look great with distressed skinny jeans or even sporty dresses. The Superstar II is an incredibly iconic sneaker (right up there with Chuck Taylors!) that was created for the basketball court but soon transitioned onto the streets. Even without taking into account the shoe's heritage, I think the stripes make it a bit more interesting than your average full white sneaker On a related note, I'm also really lusting over the limited edition SUPERCOLOR collaboration with Pharrell Williams. The same shape, 12 super bright colors!
2. KOOVS Cutwork Ballet Flat
A couple of months ago I bought the most beautiful summer heels (as seen in this post). Cream colored with beautiful floral laser cutouts. The only problem? I am comically bad at walking in heels for more than 10 minutes. So I was ecstatic to see that KOOVS just came out with a pointed flat variant of basically the same shoe. This looks so cute & would be infinitely easier for me to walk in.
3. Bata Blue Chevron Sneakers
Bata is one of those faithful brands that all of us turned to for canvas shoes in school, but recently they've been really upping their game! They have a great range of canvas shoes in fun colors with prints like chevrons & stripes. Easy, comfy shoes at very reasonable price points. Alas, these aren't available online but I think I need to drag my butt to one of their stores pronto!
Another one from KOOVS (yes, 70% of my entire wardrobe is from there) I came across this one while searching for a pair of gold shoes to go with my new anarkali. Pointed, cutaway flats may not be the first choice to pop in your mind when you think of ethnic clothing but I think they'd work perfectly! Bonus, they'd look great on with anything right from a blouse & jeans to a black shift dress! Versatile without being boring.
