Hologram Jeans In My Hologram Dreams

I remember seeing that Hologram was going to trend big again but boy was I surprised at an impromptu trip to Barneys.com this evening.

Well, first off, I was at Urban Outfitters the other day and saw a holographic wedge sneaker. I almost did it. I had to but I decided I’m not that tacky.

Saturday, after work, I took a random trip to Copley Place and snuck into Barney’s. One of those places that is just a good source of inspiration and if you have some extra cash to drop, well drop it there for the latest and one of a kind in Boston if you aren’t going to Riccardi or Louis’s. Back to the story at hand…….

As you know, I love sneakers. I’m a sneaker fanatic. So popping upstairs, I came across these jeans called Raleigh and noticed the mannequins dressed with jeans matching sneakers in pony hair. Which happened to actually be either Margiela’s or Creative Reaction. I went online when I got home to check the price cause I didn’t want to ask nor really look at the bottom of the shoe.

The Margiela’s are amazing. Like they are truly one of a kind. At $995 a bit of a splurge but hey, your feet have to look good, right? Well, the Creative Reaction are just as cool and a fraction of the price at $190! Back to business though…….

So I wanted to look at denim and see what they have. Of course, I stroll through and see Balmain, Rag and Bone, etc. Then I come across the greatest jeans on earth!!!

So what do you think? Could you see yourself rocking this trend? I totally could and I will! These jeans and shoes are way too cool to pass up?

Wait….I Didn’t Tell You What Happened?…….

As you may remember, there is this shoe called “The Rabbit” by CA by Cinzia Araia that I am beyond obsessed with. The sneaker has these long suede or leather bands that allow the individual wearing the shoe to create a variety of looks to really showcase their own style and not that of just the shoe. They retail anywhere from $300-$400, more or less depending on when and where you buy them. I HAVE BEEN OBSESSED FOR QUITE SOMETIME, since I first heard of the shoes last year!

So one day back in February or maybe it was early March, I decided that I NEEDED THESE SHOES! I was going through a depressive moment and shopping a lot and shoes were what I needed to make it through the day. I ended up with an impressive pair of Jeffrey Campbell‘s that I can hardly walk in but that’s ok….they were a steal at $50!!!!

Anyways, I marched on down to Copley Place because I knew the one place in Boston that had them in stock was Barney’s New York!

Barney’s in Boston is the place to go to for hard to find desginers, emerging designers and just really interesting pieces that aren’t of the mainstream. Think outside the box a bit! I walked into the shoe department and knew exactly what it was I looking for. I was looking for shoe in either black or white. I didn’t see it right away, it’s tucked against the left wall towards the back and there it was CA by CINZIA ARAIA! STARING ME IN THE FACE IN ALL OF THE GLORY THAT I HAD DREAMED ABOUT for such a long time.

A sales associate came out, she had dreads and was really cool like in a Brooklyn sort of way. She wasn’t from Boston, either NYC or she was from the south but like Virginia south. She grabbed me the biggest size in the cranberry color, not the color I wanted but fine none the less. I proceeded to try the shoe on……”AAAAAAAAH” My heart sank………

The shoe was too tight!!!!! No i screamed in my head. This can’t be! Why me?  The shoe that I was basing my life around at that very particular moment didn’t fit me. I was devastated.My life had lost all meaning. “Well the shoes run very narrow. The way that it’s constructed, it will give a bit but not a lot. It’s an expensive sneaker to just wear once or twice and not be the right fit for you” In my head I immediately thought, SHUT UP! LET ME BUY THE SHOE! IT’S MY MONEY TO DO WHAT I WANT”

Not being able to justify the buy, I placed the shoes back in the box. Tears almost trickled down my face as I walked upstairs to maybe see if the men’s department had the full mens line. They didn’t. I walked out, probably the saddest I have ever been in my entire life. Life didn’t have any meaning at this point. Then I realized…..it’s just a fucking shoe. Get the fuck over it…….and then I remembered that I got the most amazing pair of Jeffrey Campbell’s for a steal!

Oh well there will always be another shoe!!!
