The last vestiges of normcore have left me craving the awkwardness of a midi dress with flat shoes, and this dress really fulfills that purpose. That being said, it would be just as gorgeous with a pair of two inch satin mules. It’s a basic piece, with absolutely no bells nor whistles, but the spaghetti straps, seam down the back, and double lining up top all make this dress seem special. Oh, and it’s on sale right now, so don’t walk, run.
I bought these vans my first week in New York. Prior to that, I had been a strict converse wearer (and my true loyalty will always be to Chuck Taylor), but I succumbed. They’re cool shoes. They’re not the most comfortable sneaker, nor the best for running or standing a really long time, but they look really cool and sometimes sacrifices must be made. I’m a sucker for a good monochrome look, and so the white stole my heart. Be it Converse or Vans, what I really love is a high top sneaker. I really think their low-rise counterparts are just kidding themselves.
