Remember this dress? I ate ice cream in it over here (with much longer hair), right when Salt & Straw opened, before I had such an awful addiction to that place.  Oh well, you win some you lose some, right?  But back to the dress.  My mom found it at a thrift store, which is generally where my most awesome pieces come from, and mailed it to me. It was love at first site!  Brown isn’t a color that pops up in my wardrobe much unless you count brown leather, then it’s a whole different story.  I love this brown plaid though, it is such a killer dress.  I think I could dress it up and wear it out with something awesome under it, or I can wear it like the pictures above, with sneakers!  

I feel like I am totally late on the sneaker game, which happened for a couple of reasons.  First I’m just not much of a sneaker girl.  I like boots and every once in a while I throw in a pair of sandals.  And second, I just couldn’t get on board with the plain white sneakers, you know what I’m talking about, that everyone and their brother are making.  Although, I’m not going to lie, now that I see the way of the sneaker (through these ones from Valas, which I also wore with shorts, and my Isabel Marant’s), I kind of want some in every color/shape/size.  Maybe not every size, only my size, but every color including white!  Actually, there is a good chance I would just ruin them… maybe I should stay away from white… Either way, I’m pretty satisfied with the two pairs I have and don’t see them leaving my go-to shoe section any time soon.  

What do you think? What are your feelings on sneakers? What about the white ones spotted on every girl on the internets?  Overdone or still goin’ strong?  I WANNA HEAR!
