“i believe in dressing for the occasion. there’s a time for sweater, sneakers and levis and a time for the full-dress jazz.” // g. rogers
i think it probably started with the men.
think back a handful of years, and you’ll remember it started showing up, these tall, lanky men dressed in slim suits and at their feet, a pair of trainers instead of a pair of brogues. for the office, for an occasion, for the hell of it – it became a thing; and not too long after that, the girls started picking it up, and it thrilled me to no end.
since you’re undoubtedly aware of my opinion on gorgeous, (yet hellishly painful), high-heeled shoes; the ban has not been lifted, and the introduction of the trainer becoming synonymous with being dressed, was probably as welcomed as elegant flats being deemed a suitable replacement for the heel. these are giddy, heady times, my friends – when you can slip on a frock, tie a bow on your trainers and you’re set – perhaps not for high-tea with the queen, but for a day out on the town, nothing could be better.
