You may remember these shoes from the James Perse holiday campaign, and you probably ALSO remember that I was confused by James Perse’s styling of them with dresses, skirts, etc. Now, as with all things James Perse, I have come around and drunk ALL of the kool-aid 😉 I succumbed to the Birkenstock Arizona sandals this summer, and now, I’ve jumped on the black Nike sneakers bandwagon. And I LOVE them. I’ve worn them constantly since getting them (thanks to my dad!) – mostly with pants/jeans/leggings, but I’m fully on board with wearing them with a dress. THIS dress, is specifically perfect for these shoes; I’m not sure I would wear them with a more fitted skirt/dress, but we’ll see!
They will be perfect with the James Perse crepe surplus pants, which I will get when Shopbop does their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale/code later this week (I’m guessing they’ll do a tiered code like spend $250 get $50 off or similar). And of course they’re multi-tasking as running (more like fast walking!) shoes while I’m on vacation in Florida. Never fear though, I’m not neglecting my Vince blair sneakers at all, just not wearing them when it might rain, or if they could get very dirty (I would not wear them to the F1 race last weekend, but I did see a guy wearing them!!). And I didn’t want to wear them the last two days in the car – I’m trying to be rather delicate with them since they’re haircalf.
Anyway, I’m glad I tried them, and now I know better than to EVER question again the wisdom of the stylists at James Perse; they know what they’re doing. And in case you weren’t convinced yet, I AM the world’s biggest “James Perse fangirl”…the domain name is registered and just waiting to be filled!! Hopefully I’ll get around to it before the end of the year, but that’s being extremely optimistic given that we’re moving in December…
Happy Thanksgiving week!!! Hope you’re enjoying time with your family.
