Some of us have been stepping up our sneaker game as of late! Stylish and creative lace-ups from major brands – Nike, Adidas, Converse or Puma – have saved many of us from that walk-of-pain in 5 inch heels after a long day. With the stamp of haute couture approval from Chanel, who designed trainers for their haute couture and ready-to-wear collections, sneakin-it to anyplace with almost anything has become fashionably acceptable, and for that it’s time to insert it into our dating wardrobe. Don’t worry about the men, not approving of this. A man prefers a woman who walk with confidence, not one who may tip over before having a single drink. A man is attracted to a woman who owns her look, and wears it well. Plus, which man doesn’t love a woman who knowledgeable about her kicks?
Last year, for my birthday, I sent a request to friends to dress in their woven best and serve me their fiercest Canadian Tux look. A blue crew collection of photos would have been the visual gift to cherish, and with so many brilliant, creative people around me, the result would have been the sickest collage, and time stamp for all to reflect on.
Unfortunately the collage never happened, due to the fact that less than a handful of my peeps shared with me their Canadian best and getting creative people to do anything, much less anything in a timely fashion, is a mission impossible for even Tom Cruise to accomplish.
Since my project is still “pending,” I’ve had to move on to other head-to-hem blue getups, and they might as well be the opposite sex wearing very stylish blue-colored ensembles better than they would tailored suits on a Sunday!
