The hunt is over. Ever since I saw these Alexander Wang-esque heels on Instagram and on other bloggers, I knew I had to get my hands on them. I don't know why it was so hard to find these shoes, but long story short, it took me three weeks before I could find a pair in my size that weren't damaged in some way! The main difference between these ones from Forever21 and the real Wangs is that the real one has one extra strap that goes up the ankle. Oh, that, and... the fact that these were only $50. Which, I have to say is a kind of a lot considering they are from Forever. But hey, I'm just a student and they work for me. I just love the cool cutouts, and how they can be dressed up or down. The only downside is that they give me blisters on the back of my heels, but that's what band-aid is for!
The school semester is officially over, and I just have two finals left! It's crazy how fast time went by, but I am counting down the days until I can fly back home to see my parents and spend Christmas together. Good luck to everybody out there during finals! We're almost there!
The KENZO tiger sweatshirt: We've all seen it blogged and reblogged all over the internet and instagram since last year. The creative minds behind this very simple, but genius, design are Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, who took on Kenzo as their own in 2012. I read an article about the duo, and it is a really inspiring story. Basically, they started out as great friends, had a great idea, founded Opening Ceremony, and now revamped Kenzo into a fresh, edgy brand. (Read the article here!) Their personal success story makes me love the brand even more.
Fashion has the most interesting way of recycling itself. Who would have thought overalls would come back into style? I certainly did not see it coming, but it's awesome to be able to wear a childhood favorite again without looking like a hill billy. I won the overalls I'm wearing from a contest held by Twee from ezzentrictopz.com (Thanks again Twee!) Now that the ground is covered in snow, I'm going to have to layer up with tights!
