Fall Fashion Lyrical: Just Do It!

It's not everyday, that Nike impresses me. That's a lie! There was a time when Nike sneakers were all I could think about. 10 years ago that is. Then came Puma, followed by FUBU (hahhaha I'm laughing right now, cuz I realize that most people reading this have no clue what I just said. For those of you who don't, it's this urban streetwear brand. You know, like what Prada is to the average fashionista, FUBU was to the average urban kid at one point) and then I decided that I'm a superstar. When your swagg changes, your style changes too. So then I started rockin' All Stars, Adidas, Creative Recreation, Gucci, D&G's and to the big disapproval of many UGGS. I make UGGS look fresh though, #ubetterasksomebody! And I discovered ZARA too, somewhere along the way. They shoes is hot! But I never though I'd come across a pair of Nikes that would literally stop my heartbeat. Until now!


OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY... these sneakers is soooooo ill! Like I can't describe it. I was watching this TV-show, where they were talkin' about the launch of this line. They had one in the studio and the female host was joking to the male host that he should try 'em on. I was like "NOOOO". You see, some sneakers just require a certain style, that swagg, that confidence, just your attitude, your whole being has to fit. It's the same reason why I won't wear Nike Air Max, because it wouldn't look right. That doesn't mean that they are any less fashionable or whatever, it's just that it's not for me. But these babies... Oh my god, I swear, I GOTSTA have them. Could u imagine me in my all-white-errthing with neon pink shoes underneath. Just picture it for a minute. Go ahead, I'll give you a sec.

*Moment4Imagination*


I know I'm gonna upset some fashionistas when I say this, but us "fashion-people" can b quit ignorant and delusional. Seriously! We love to pretend that fashion is all about the creative, the avant-garde, the only-we-know-them-underground brands and ish, but it really isn't (just for the record I really don't. Most of the times I have no clue what they be talkin' about in class. I have yet to see something from Acne. But I have other flaws). What I love most is the people who define what fashion means to them personally and look the part. Like, there's this girl in my class (beautiful girl btw, but she'll remain nameless hahaha) with great style and stuff. I remember seeing her rockin' some black and grey fashion-esq ensemble and on her feet she had on white Air Force 1 high-tops. She was killin' it that day. KILLIN' it, I'm telling you. So fresh. So clean. And the fact that they were Nike kicks was just awesome. She got mad props from me that day. You know, I give credit where due. More people should!

If for some reason the neon pink ones aren't available, I'll rock out with my co.. sorry, I got a little carried away there hahaha. What I was trying to say is that the electric yellow will do just fine too. The bright blue I'll pass on, because I already have a pair of high-top completely blue sneakers like that. And you best believe I'll stand out school.. No, I'm not being cocky (I said stand out, not look better than the rest. DUH!), but a lot of people have told me that I'm the only person who wears bright colours in that place. Of course that's an exaggeration, but you get the point, don't you.

Love, R.
