What You Share with John Mayer…Sneaker Love!

john mayers sneakers

John Mayer really loves sneakers (why do I keep typing snakers – who would wear THOSE?) – especially Nikes. He told USA Today once, “The best part about the Grammy’s is getting to wear sneakers. The sneakers keep it real. This is just music, nothing earth shattering.” There is actually an entire blog dedicated to following John’s sneakers and they have a picture of John out and about wearing a pair of really cute Nike’s called the Air Max 95-360 red pink gray (or red pink brown).

I found these Nike sneakers for $79.99 if you want those exact ones.

Sneaker News just did a feature on John Mayer for being a “sneakerhead” and noted his Nike’s were the Nike x Dave’s Quality Meat (DQM) Blazer High’s in Black (that’s a m ... Read More

50% OFF! Christian Siriano for Payless

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

christian siriano payless

Important EDIT: Christian Siriano just announced on Oprah that everything he has done for Payless is 50% off. Go to Oprah.com to find the Payless store nearest you and to get the coupon. There ARE a few things that might be nice but a smart shopper knows that even though something is suddenly only $15.00 doesn’t make it a good purchase if you still don’t love it. I suspect this coupon rouse might be because his items aren’t selling.

Christian Siriano is doing shoes for Payless, which is instantly a mood-lifter. (He was the winner of Project Runway, remember?) Except…well, until you SEE the shoes. I’m torn. First off, the shoes and boots Siriano has done look very much like the ones designer Rodarte did a while ago. But my biggest problem is that I’m not sure if many of these shoe designs are wearab ...

Shoe Booties by kudumomo on Flickr

When it comes to shoes for fall 09, booties are still hot. Whether you call them a shoebooty or shoe bootie (or ankle boots), they’re cute. Calling them “booties” reminds me of the little booties that babies wear, but no one seems to mind. So, what shoe boots are cute for right now? And, even more importantly, let’s discuss how to wear shoe boots. Because the worst thing is to buy something great and then have no idea what to do with it besides look at it longingly in your closet.

June of JuneLin.com has posted pictures of booties seen on the runways for Hermes, J Mendel, and Marc Jacobs. Those shoes are BANANAS, as Rachel Zoe would say. But seriously, I PINE, I YEARN! And yet, I still can’t buy them because then I would have no ... Read More

Urban Outfitters is a great, hip, store. But it’s pricey, too. Ergo, we shop the Urban Outfitters sales! What do I look for when I see the rows of items with an urban outfit discount? That’s easy! Items you can still incorporate to your wardrobe right now, items you’ll wear next season, items drastically marked down, things you’ll always need (you wear a bra daily, yes?) – stuff like that. Good ol’ Urban outfit stocks plenty of great things – like the tater pots you see above! If there’s an Urban Outfit outlet near you, I highly suggest you get thee to it. Make sure you check out ...

Wanted Frills Flat - Round-toe ballet flat

Wanted Frills Flat - Round-toe ballet flat

Okay, so ruffles are a major trend for Fall 09. I hadn’t realized it extended even to shoes, but apparently it does.  If I’ve learned anything from my sister, it’s that a serious shoe habit is hard to kick. So if you know that you’ll absolutely NEED to buy a new pair of shoes this fall, I think I’ve found the pair for you. These Ruffled Flats from PiperLime are versatile-but-special enough to fit all sorts of needs.

They’re not too ‘out there’ that you can’t wear them a lot, but you’ll definitely feel happy about them having a little bit of flair. ... Read More
