The Comeback Kid

Or in this case, the comeback sneaker. Now that $600+ hidden wedge sneakers are all the rage, my wallet and vanity have directed me back to the way of Vans. Mind you, I’m wholly aware that even Vans now have a price tag of $300+, but not if you, like me, rather enjoy kicking it old school. I’m talking back when Tony Hawk was still cool before all that shit came out with him cheating on his wife and all. Not cool Tony, not cool. The classic checkered Vans however are pretty rad. And what’s spring anyway without graphic black and white prints?? I kick around in these bad boys wearing everything from pouffy dresses to cut-off jorts, and even skinny jeans (ahem Uniqlo makes the best). I seriously doubt Tony Hawk is going to make an epic comeback (at least he’s not in the doghouse like that douche Lance), but the sneakers stand a chance. How do you style your kicks??IMG_1695

Madewell Sale

Uniqlo Puffy DressMAdewell just made well. Wait, huh? They made me feel well I mean. Why? Because ladies and gents today begins the additional 30% off sale SALE! A sale so good it makes you want to slap yo’ mama. Why you would want to do that though is beyond me. I’m actually quite fond of my mom and would never want to hurt her, much less slap her.

Back to Madewell. I for one am a huge fan of their t-shirts and tank tops. Good quality, long, and the shapes don’t get all out of whack. Granted, I’m 5’9″ and usually wear a X-small or small in most shirts, but here lately I’ve been going up a size or two. For one thing I like the slouchy look, but for another, I like my wrists to actually be covered by shirts that are supposed to be long sleeve. The same theory applies to my navel. I’m not one for revealing it to just anyone so I like my shirts to cover it. So there.

Now while you’re checking out all that Madewell has going on, wander on over to Uniqlo too. There is some GOOD stuff on sale there right now! Hell, even not on sale they have the best prices around. Currently I’m eyeing several of the men’s button up shirts, some slouchy linen shorts, and a puffy dress. I think the grand total of 3 items may be $100…maybe. And hey, if you rack up that much you get free shipping. Win-Win!
