Red, White, & Blue... And Gold!
I've been shopping my closet A LOT lately, trying to wear things that I've forgotten about or that I tend to easily skip over in an attempt to convince myself I need new clothes. Mainly, to try and save money! It takes a little more time in the mornings, but it definitely is worth it. I found this old denim top that I love pairing with white and red, so I did, and here are the shoes I chose to pair with it for my #SQshoeSwap!

I chose a pair of color-blocked sneaks called the Air Jordan 1 "Black Toe" Retro. It sports the classic Nike Air branding on the tongue, smooth leather, a classic Chicago Bulls color scheme, and a black toe, which all make for an awesome shoe. (Air Jordan 1's are one of 3 of my favorite Jordan styles.) I got these as a gift from a friend who I did some graphic design work for last year, so sweet! I picked out some other great J's below..
For my switch into heels, I wore a pair of Derek Lam "Leather Shield Heels" that I scored around my birthday in December. They retailed for $1,060 and I scored them for I think around $150!! High five! Actually, high TEN!!!
They are amazing because not only are the sheik, unique, and sexy, but there are hidden stretchy bands inside the shoe that completely strap you in for maximum comfort! Holla! I love how they look with jeans. Gladiator-like, but not. Hmm.
Added some cool golden heels here for ya!
Also, two Derek Lam boots that are on sale and are SWEET!
