Random fashion thoughts - Part II (A New Hope) - Page 298

post #4456 of 13859
I got through a couple of years with nothing but a pair of stans and a pair of doc martin's I'd dyed french racing blue. I usually have no idea how these 'moments' happen, just like I didn't know they were out of style at some point but as suspected it has to do with marketing.http://www.businessinsider.com/why-everyone-is-wearing-stan-smiths-2015-7 .

Choose whatever heel color you want. 

on a slightly related note, I was in LA for the weekend and seems like every other person was wearing Stans. Or common projects or SLP. Along with a ton of drapey tees and leather DRs (even though it was fucking 80 degrees). The item du jour seems to be the black felt boho hat. Thanks Hedi!

Yeah...I'm actually wearing the plain white ones right now (white heel counter FWIW).

DC meet up? Just not near the Hill, because despite working nearby, that area is awful.

Club Monaco is stocking ten c and porter - apparently both are selling through pretty well to mall types that come in and apparently impulse buy $2,000 outerwear pieces from brands they've never heard of.

I literally have been wanting a pair of these for 30 years.  I never bought them because they were white and I normally had to make my shoes last and white were just gonna end up looking like hell.

 

So when I finally see them come back and decide what the hell, now they are everywhere. 

 

What I would like to see come back is the Reebocks I had in like 1983.  They were grey with a terry lining and a soft toe.

I'll let gray slide since it's just "dirty white".

I could/would wear a leather jacket when it's 80... 😅

Maybe I've become the SW&D curmudgeon.

"Stans should be white!"

"No leather until it's cold out!"

"Get off of my lawn you drapey tee wearing hooligans!"

"What's with these newfangled hippie hats from 1969!"

Why is it that raincoats hardly ever come with a detachable hood?

Lemaire has a parka with detachable hood
