There's fashion and then there's this. My eyes popped out of my head like a freakin' Looney Tune who has just spent the day on acid with Miley Cyrus when I laid eyes on a woman who dared to wear a Valentino bow-blouse and bohemian-riche skirt (both undoubtedly editorial hits of the season) with Nike Air Force 1s. She is freaking cool. It got me thinking about something else that's freaking cool: the Adidas Stan Smith - the unlikely 'It' shoe of this summer. Leandra Medine thinks so and I love her the way I love corn dogs after six margaritas which is to say - I love her more than is healthy.
I'm drinking the Kool Aid on these sneaks and this look packs a punch! Brief Interlude: I heretofore have gathered little to no information on the elusive Stan Smith other than that the being in question held a tennis raquet and was good at such an art form. I care for sports like the heterosexual male cares for Girls. Now that this tangent has taken its course, case-in-point time. A delightful knot-tie blouse + funky yet fab florals + Stan Smiths = classic yet cool, or cool yet classic - pick your poison, I'll pick mine. Like a middle-aged stripper moonlighting as a Pre-School teacher by day, this look may cause scratching of head (and inevitably dandruff along with that) but the fashion-frenzied girls who pronounce Proenza Schouler the right way, will know you got it. Just like this girl - yes, I'm still thinking about her - she who wears Valentino with Nikes and dates a bearded man presumably from Brooklyn but actually from Australia.
