Dress: American Apparel
Jean Jacket: H&M
Sneakers: Converse see them HERE along with some of my favorite things!

Yes...I know what you are thinking...I DO OWN SNEAKERS lol. But only 3 pair (two pair of high top chucks and one pair of steve madden patent leather high tops).
When I first moved to New York in 2006 I noticed how many people wore chucks. Down south it's not as big. These were actually my first pair of chucks and I live in them only in the hottest of the summer time. Other than that they are carefully stored in the box they came in.
They are so fun, colorful and funky thus can be paired with just about anything. Enters..another summer staple of super tight American Apparel Dress. I have this dress in 3 colors. Its perfect for hot summer days...or just when you want to look hot :-)
 No man can resist the extra tight dress.

For some reason I hate all other sneakers. Especially low top sneakers. Mainly because I have HUGE FEET. So low tops make my feet look even longer and I feel like I'm wearing clown shoes.
Here are some tips to make your feet look smaller when they are actually big as all hell.
1). Wedges: They make your feet look smaller
2). Round toe heels, pumps, and sandals do more to make your feet looks smaller/ pointy toed shoes especially flats make big feet look like ships.
3). Any shoe or boot that hits you right at or slightly above the ankle (along the malleoli: those knobs on your ankles) makes your feet look smaller

So there are my tips....ENJOY!

Which do you prefer, high tops or low tops?

  15. Those Chucks are fun! I want a pair. I don't do sneakers unless I'm doing something athletic. lol For the most part I hate them, but would rock those in a minute. They look good with the dress. And I agree with your tips on bigger feet, I'm a 9 1/2 so I can relate.
