The “Big City Pump Silhouette Sneaker” by Be&D is highlarious.
You’d definitely get the best of both worlds with that one.
I’m normally a big fan of trompe l’oeil fashion, but I prefer real heel height, so I’ve been wearing the hell out of my Thelma wedge sneakers by Ash Shoes. I wore them to, from and during a trip to Chicago last week. Right before I took this picture there, a random dude told me, “I like your high-heel Converse.” Ha! I did pick this Ash style for its Converse-like white toe.
What Wendy Wore
Jacket: Stacy Lomman Fall 2011 satin bomber (acquired 2012)
T-shirt: MaxMara (pre-2005)
Shoes: Ash Shoes (2012)
Purse lurking behind me on the ground: Prada (2008)
I just got that satin bomber jacket from gorgeous blogger/designer/neighbor/constant companion Stacy Lomman. Every so often, I walk the block and a half to her place and shop the runway samples in her closet. I don’t know how I missed this Fall 2011 jacket until now. People were asking me about it everywhere I went in Chicago. It’s nice and warm too.
If you want a stylish jacket, you can holla at Stacy on Twitter here. You can find Ash sneakers at Bergdorf Goodman, among other places. But if you want to read the well-researched story on wedge sneakers that I did for the Huffington Post, you are shit out of luck because they’re having some kind of technical problem there. I hope they fix it soon, because I spent a lot of time on that one!
It’s a long block and a half (haha), but I know my stairs are the real issue! I LOVE this jacket on you!! You forgot to write about the construction guy who said he liked your sneakers — he was so tickled, I thought it was awesome.
Yeah, that was the high-heel Converse remark! I mentioned it!
Duh, how did I miss that?

That jacket is great with the shoes! Love the asymmetrical neckline of your top as well.
I need to get a picture just of the top because it is pretty cool!
I love both pairs of sneakers! (and the jacket)
The jacket was perfect for the Chicago weather.

Starring those sneakers… you could do it! I’d love, too. You rock in sporty gear;)

That jacket is the coolest. I love the structured shoulders on the bomber-style.

I wanted a pair of high heel sneakers last week when I dressed in baggy, low-riding jeans and boxers to discuss hip-hop style in my fashion theory class. But I couldn’t get a pair in time, so Converse high-tops it was. Coveting a pair of Isabel Marant ones!
And now I know why some hip-hoppers swagger with one hand in their front pocket: they’re holding up their jeans (or at least I was).
Ha ha! I want pix of your look. (And possibly another pair of wedge sneaks for myself.)
