Against The Grain

In between last week's crazy Oscar madness with people jumping from one party and event to another, LA'ers had to dress to impress everywhere they went. So when I had to run around town post Oscar event and not being able to handle the pain of the uncomfy heels that went with this outfit any further, I did what I thought was going to be the unthinkable and a fashion disaster and pulled out the gold sneaks I had lying around in my car from earlier that day. But then I realized that, actually, it wasn't a disaster at all. All the gold sneaks did was take my ensemble from fancy and upscale to little more casual and hip-- making me kind of fall in love with the look even more. The unexpected on-the-whim alteration to my outfit came to show that you don't always have to stick to the rules to make a cute outfit work, sometimes going against the grain and trying new combinations can lead to bigger benefits and fashionista moments, and not to mention more comfort!
