What I Wore Today: 10/20/2012 ('80s Hipster)

'80s hipster outfit: red corduroys by Pilcro, sneaker wedges, gray sweatshirt, gray blazer, knubbly loop scarf from anthropologie green wool hat from Topshop, studded-bottom bag

Ryan hit the nail on the head when he said that this outfit looked like something the artsy girl in an '80s movies might wear. He's so right. When I first saw this hat, I thought it was very Madeline, but, with the right shoes, it reads more Molly Ringwald.

Speaking of shoes, can we stop for a moment and talk about these shoes? When I first saw the Isabel Marant sneakers wedges (or, as Ryan calls them, "sneaky wedges," because the wedges is sneakily hidden), I was a bit obsessed. I loved them for how incredibly unnecessary their were. They seamed to me to represent the pennacle of having fun with fashion. 

But, as they were over $600, I resigned myself to the fact they would never be mine. After all, something that silly rarely generates enough demand to create affordable designer-inspired versions. 

And then I saw them . . . at Target . . . for $30. See: I should do commercials for Target because sometimes I just love them so God-damned much.
