Hello friends!

It’s your long lost Stephanie here — and I have a new post. Although my posts usually have a consistent focus (trainers — just incase if you’re new here), this post is a little different from the others — there are no pictures of me. Gasp! The horror. As disappointed as I’m sure you all are, these trainers are so epic that they need a post all for themselves. Although I was initially hesitant to post about these shoes, my better judgment has failed me.

Ever since I first saw these hi-tops last year, I’ve been pining for them like a twelve-year-old over a Jesse McCartney poster. Despite this “love at first sight” that I experienced, my hesitations were twofold: 1. Saying that these are expensive would be an understatement, and 2. they’re mostly white. As someone who lives in a very rain-y place (I’m talking gale-force, there’s probably going to be a hurricane rain), wearing/acquiring white trainers seems pretty illogical.

Despite their price and colour, I couldn’t stop thinking about them — and thus found myself purchasing them, much to the chagrin of my bank account. Thankfully, I somehow managed to budget them in with a diet of soup and a bit of work money. Despite the expense, I felt zero regret, and I’ve worn these shoes everyday since I’ve bought them — and they’re still white, ha! The smell of them is reminiscent of a new car, and the comfort is like walking on a cloud (corny but true!). Their versatility is out of this world too, and they’re best paired with skinny leather pants  à  la J-Biebs and a collosal scarf  à la Lenny Kravitz. I have also  found myself wearing them with things I’d never expect, and they take every look up 100 notches of cool (which during revision period — I need).

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Look out for incoming posts on how I style these, very very soon! Lots of exciting things are going to be happening with this blog — this semester has been a mere test run. Trust me.

Life Update:

Hey guys! I know it has been ages, but I’ve let revision take over my entire life. Two exams have been completed — yay! My final exam is saturday, and after that I’ll have way more time to improve this blog and interact with the wonderful WordPress community. Comment below if you have any tips on revision, and if you have a splurge that you don’t regret (hey — there are benefits to the soup diet!).
