Pumped up Kicks

Life is so hard when you can’t shop. Walking around the mall ‘window shopping’ is seriously not as fun as the real deal. But, I did find my most coveted item of the season while doing so: Hidden Heels. If you would have told me that sneakers with a wedge would be coming into style, I would have laughed in your face and told you to just end my misery if I were caught wearing those. That is, until I saw them. These shoes kept popping up everywhere, and once I saw a friend wearing ones with spikes down the back, I was sold. Obviously.

So these babies look exactly like high top sneakers, except they do the amazing wonders that heels do for your posture, and your height. With a 2-3 inch wedge, you’ll have people wondering whether you grew overnight, or whether they’re seeing funny, because the shoes I’m about to show you have a mystery wedge covered by a sneaky sneaker-like exterior. I’ll take them all, please.

I love these classic kicks with a metallic finish. You can’t even notice that they have a heel, and the metallic touch is girly in a pair of shoes that would otherwise be a little tomboy-ish. Paired with leggings and a cute sweater, or a leather jacket, you’re ready to go and looking spicy!

And finally, Etoile by Isabelle Marant. Drool. You can get all of those above for the price of these red beauties!

So when you’re thinking about going casual and adding a little kick (pun intended), think about a pair of hidden wedges for a relaxed but chic vibe.

Struttin’ my way through my favourite season (jokes, it’s midterm season),



About ChelseaSwag

I have recently completed my Criminology degree with a concentration in law and a minor in psychology at Carleton University in Ottawa. The past three years that I have spent away from my home in Montreal have only reconfirmed my ever-longing desire to become involved in the fashion industry in some way. Although there are a lot of fashion blogs out there, I have to first say that my own style will really resonate with the girls who are always looking to stand out- more so on a student budget. Different relatives and family members involved in the fashion industry have surrounded and shaped my love for fashion throughout my lifetime, however, none are quite so edgy as myself. I hope to enlighten the ladies that are looking to add a little extra oomph to their appearance, while also reflecting their own personal taste. But remember, swag is not only what you wear- it's a lifestyle. CP
