I always love a good "dress it up/dress it down" look. The shoes of an outfit literally make the BIGGEST impact on the look you want to go for without really having to change anything about the clothing. I also love how easy it is to dress up a simple graphic tee. Speaking of graphic tees, I'm back on my obsession with them. I've found so many cute ones on Etsy lately, including this one, and I kind of need to take a chill pill on ordering so many. - Now, the moment I've personally been waiting for, that you may not even find that exciting... these Balenciaga sneakers!! I saw a blogger wearing them on instagram a couple times, and then I was like, "ok, I need these." (Shows how much influence bloggers have on people, right?) I spent HOURS searching for these online in my correct size. They are no longer sold at Balenciaga, and anywhere I'd find them online didn't have my size. It's also in European sizing, so I was reading countless reviews - some saying to size down one size and some saying to size down 2 sizes.... So I start searching everywhere for one size down and two sizes down, and I magically found ONE PAIR LEFT in the 2 sizes down. I felt like it was a sign and after staring at the screen for like 30 minutes, contemplating whether or not I should do it... I said "what the hell," and bought them. Like, it's one thing if they're just a random pair of sneakers, but these are Balenciaga sneaks... aka designer, so they're not cheap, and I wouldn't be able to return them, since it was final sale. Fast forward to delivery day... THEY FUCKING FIT ME. Guys. I was so nervous. I thought for sure they were going to be too small since I decided to go two sizes down. Truly a miracle.
