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!
