Stepping Up Your Sneaker Game

If you live in the QC and you love fashion and you do not have any swanky sneakers, male or female, (eh hem, se moi?!) it is time to up your sneaker game.  Cool sneaks are ALL the rage.  It is virtually impossible to walk into a store without at least two sales associates and one customer donning the coolest, hippest pair of sneaks paired perfectly with their destroyed or 1980's styled denim and oversized sweater or haphazardly paired with a prairie dress and denim jacket.  Starting with the Creme de la Creme-see and be seen Golden Goose on over to Isabel Marant, Gucci, D.A.T.E, Ash and Dolce Vita, cool sneaks can be yours at any price point.  As an almost exclusive heel wearer, wanting to be sure I get my CPW return on investment, last summer I reached for a more accessible but every bit as equally fun pair by Dolce Vita. They are the perfect stylish addition to my wardrobe for photo shoot days where I need to be able to move quickly. 

In a few different muted shades, the Bobby suede wedge sneaker is a very versatile high top. 

I LOVE the Isabel Marant metallic and leather lightening bolt sneaker.

Paired with my favorite denim overalls, I styled these oh so fun sparkly red white and blue metallic Gucci sneakers in the upcoming issue of SouthPark Magazine. 

One of my uber chic clients owns this very aspirational pair by Valentino.

If I do decide to reach for the fancy schmancy style, I am almost certain it will be THIS pair... perfect for cheering on my Tar Heels in style.
