Love It or Hate It – Sneaker Pumps

Posted by Sophie on June 18, 2009

DKNY Spring 09

I rarely wear sneakers… hardly.  The only exception is during workouts of course.  And you may ask, how about them sneaker pumps?  Well, I can confidently say – never!

Sneaker + heels… that’s is just not an appealing combo to me.  The style should have stayed back in the 80′s and never comeback along with those hideous harem pants.  This DKNY sneaker would’ve been much cooler without the heel.  What cha’ think?

Here is a funky pair with chunkier heels.  Still hideous… no matter what style or color!  Would you ever wear or have you worn sneaker pumps before and what would you wear them with anyway?

Nine West – Dtucks (Yellow Canvas) $42.55

Love It or Hate It – Maison Martin Margiela Boots

Posted by Sophie on May 2, 2009

I’m always lusting after cutout boots but not really fond of the Maison Martin Margiela knee-high boots Kim Kardashian is wearing.

Although with a cool asymmetrical cutout, they look better on the display shelf than on your feet… the exposed area is a bit too much for my liking (from the heel to almost to the toes).

Even if I had $1300 of disposable income, I still wouldn’t get this pair.  There are far too many other yummy boots to choose from out there…

Maison Martin Margiela Boots $1245


My personal taste leans more towards this pair, plus it’s MUCH cheaper!  Which pair would you prefer design wise?

Linea Paolo ‘Miladia’ Cutout Boot $169.95 - Shop Sandals under $100

Love It or Hate It – YSL Cage Shoes

Posted by Sophie on February 18, 2009

Gladiator shoes gone mad… LOL!  Haven’t seen anything quite like the Yves Laurent cage shoes (YSL Spring 09).  Such architectural appeal to them.  The CAGE BOOTS are the most eye-catching of all… they seem very airy and comfy like wearing a pull up sock with a bunch of holes in them.  Spend $1400 to find out how they actually feel… let me know!

Or, get the look for less right here!

I love gold in terms of jewelry, certain styles of clothes from holiday dresses to tops. If the piece is designed right gold can really pop.  Gold overall can really add a lot to your shoe and clothing collections.

UES Nise Gold Sneakers $415

UES Nise Gold Sneakers $415

These sneakers remind me of something you would see in an 80′s Hip Hop video or something. I’m not feeling the UES Nise sneakers that are supposedly chic. I just don’t see it!  Let alone paying over $400 smackers for something this over the top.  Personally I would rather go with the Black Leather or the Denim.
