Fashion Trends I Thought I Would Never Be Caught Dead Wearing (But I'm growing to like;) ) Part 3: The Wedge Sneakers

The last of the fashion trends I thought I would never be caught dead in are the wedge sneakers.  I mean, seriously, the first thing that comes to my mind sporting this trend is Baby Spice and she's not even my favorite Spice Girl!   So when I saw Khloe Kardashian wearing these high cut wedged rubber shoes, I had a chuckle and said to myself, "Puh-lease, mainstream fashion would absolutely not catch on!".  But to my dismay, that was just the start of a slew of wedge sneaker sporters that would later parade these sky high sporty shoes on every fashion magazine available!  And as I saw them one, after another, after another on my favorite fashion icons,   I have become completely convinced that, yes, I could proudly wear this fashion trend!

I absolutely love these shoes now! I then searched for styles I like in the low, mid and high price ranges and here's what I found:
Womens Mod


Womens Puma Sky Wedge Sneaker


Marc by Marc Jacobs - Cutout Sneaker Wedge (Vacchetta Maine Green/Cotton Lace) - Footwear


So how about you, what do you think of this trend?

Fashion Trends I Thought I Would Never Be Caught Dead Wearing (But I'm growing to like;) ) Part 2: The Mirrored Sunglasses

I guess you can't blame me if I used to loathe this trend as the first person to pop in my head when you say mirrored sunglasses is Cyndi Lauper with her electric pink hair and fishnet tights. Recently, as I looked back at pictures of my childhood,  I cringed as pictures after pictures of myself sporting this 80's trend graced the scrapbook of my grandmother.  As I was about to bury this trend and swear never again to be ever, ever be caught dead in these horrendous shades,  I saw photos of  fashion icons nonchalantly rocking these reflective sunnies  all over the magazines and online:


Now, I'm on board!  I am absolutely starting to love these shades!  I should have known better   from styling school not to ever swear off any particular trend because trends recycle every twenty years!!!  Whether I like it or not,these shades were bound to come back right about now so what was I really thinking?  Next, up, denim from head to toe!! Eeekk!!! If that were to happen,  fashion world, you're on your own!
