runway my way

The great debate among fashionistas this spring seems to be surrounding the sneaker wedge. I have never been a sneaker girl--well, not since my collection of kangaROOS in high school--and to be honest, I didn't even love the original Isabel Marants. But then I saw the beauties that graced the Marc by Marc Jacobs S/S 2012 runway, and everything I'd previously believed completely disappeared. The red ones were my fave, but I decided the navy would be more wardrobe friendly. I took a cue from the Marc runway looks and paired the sneaker wedges with stripes, opting for a [size 12] dress from the Maternity line at ASOS (available here) and some killer shades (available here).

  9. Fierce! I've been on the fence about this look, but I'm really feeling it on you. I guess I have to do some serious overtime to get these MJ edges at $455?!?! They're worth it though. You just convinced me to embrace the sneak wedge trend.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Lmao... I know that's right. $450 is a bit much for me.

    3. I wish Steve Madden was my inexpensive alternative to a $450 sneaker. Alas, someday! Perhaps when I'm LMT to the stars haha.

  13. Love everything! I'm not a big fan of the sneaker wedge. I like the look of sneakers and am totally down with wearing them with dresses and like that the look is in. But why do I need to add a wedge? all the look of a sneaker with less of the comfort? that's what i don't really get/like. That said you look fabulous!! and the sneaker-wedges are growing on me.

  14. This doesn't even look like a sneaker. A really nice alternative to the wedge boot. Cute look. Once again, you look gorgeous.

  15. That's a really cute look. I like the sneakers but not really on that dress but that's just a matter of taste. I had bought the Ash ones but I am already reselling them as I don't think they are very me! lol

  18. I love how you styled the sneakers. I find them to be a bit difficult to wear.

  21. Gabi! You are so awesome! You inspired me to buy my first fatkini! :) I've been searching for the perfect cat-eye sunglasses. Just placed an order at ASOS for these and got 20% off! Needless to say, I am too excited. You are beautiful and keep up the great work. You are truly an inspiration for us plus-sized girls and straight-sized girls the like!

  34. i LOOOOOOVe that dress and that bag, but im not sold on the sneaker wedge yet...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I actually favor the sneaker wedge trend - I have a pair from my old boutique job that I love (even if they aren't that comfortable). I love your pair! But honestly ... I'm not feeling them paired with that dress. I'm not sure what is turning me off about it but I could totally see you rocking those sneaker wedges with a pair of tight black pants, sequin top and black leather cropped jacket! Maybe I just see them more edgier than the trend is pushing it.

    Also, think Marc Jacobs is a genius -- but who picked out those models? They look like boys....

  37. Gabi, I just wanted to say that because of this blog post I immediately went to DSW and bought a pair!! Just tried them on and I love them!! Totally out of my budget but worth it so much! I can't wait to wear them this weekend!

  38. I would never put together those sneakers with that dress but it really worked!!! Just shows how much styling I need to learn and how much being confident really shines through!
