I spent a long time debating over whether or not to get these sneakers, I even took to Twitter to ask you guys for your opinions and it was pretty much straight down the middle. Some of you loved them, some of you hated them, and I was still completely torn. I couldn’t decide if they were trashy cool, or just plain trashy. However, being a bit of a sneaker addict and sticking by my ‘if it’s not black but I still weirdly want it’ rule, I decided to give them a shot.

As soon as they arrived I knew I’d made the right choice, glossy silver vinyl paired with sprayed silver soles, they’re just the right side of tacky. I always enjoy pieces which really divide opinion, and it’s become very clear that with these there is no middle ground, it’s either love or hate. The reworked ‘Brea’ style is a really nice update on the classic Chuck too, with it’s wrap around velcro strap and padded lining and tongue. It’s a subtle change, but one that makes them feel very fresh again. I’m already eyeing up the all black leather version. The silver, black and a handful of other colours are also currently in the sale at lovethesales (they have a pretty great Reiss sale on at the moment too!) if you fancy yourself a pair.

    I love the cropped jumper and the converse look right on trend! Loving the metallic finish and I used to own a similar pair in a high-top style but haven’t seen them in years! :( x

    The shoes are a Little outside my own comfort Zone (I’m not so much of a Sneakers fan and am sceptical against light coloured shoes), but I have to agree, they are appealing (the silver sole had me!) and they add an interesting element to the Outfit nevertheless – especially when reflecting in the Sweater!
    I noticed you wear a pointed moon ring with the knit Sweater. I Did this a few times, but still regret doing this, as I pulled threads of my wonderful Sweater and ruined it. Do you have a trick for this tricky Situation, or do you just pay Attention not to come too Close?

      I am just very, very careful with it. It does get caught on knits occasionally, but I just try to remember not to pull it if it gets stuck and to gently untangle it if that happens. You can mend pulled threads though, by either stretching it a little of tying a knot and cutting off the extra thread. I’ve done this to a few of my sweaters to save them :)
