The Lady Hi Tops

Remember the Nike Outbreak hi tops from Lady Foot Locker? Well, they are part of the Zodiac collection and were inspired by the twins, Gemini, and I'm a crazy Gemini and it's my birthday so I'm wearing them today. And I LOVE them. So far my croissant/bagel guy, my office-mate, two other co-workers and some of the guys who work in Bryant Park have complimented them.

And this is not the first time I've worn them. The first time I didn't wear socks with them as I was late for work and possessed only dirty laundry. I'd rather go sockless than wear dirty socks. I was also standing on my feet all day and didn't develop a single blister. Impressive. The Outbreaks ($69.99) are in-store at Lady Foot Locker on 34th Street.

Here a photo I made Husband take just before I made him drive me to the subway station (birthday week demands):

Sorry about the blurry picture but I like it because I am making the exact same face my nephew & almost everyone else in my family makes when taking pictures. That's genes for you.

But aren't the shoes great? The bright colors cheer me up and I literally bounce down steps in them. This is not normal behavior for me, it is the shoes, I swear. And I don't even dislike the huge Nike logo on the side and I'm pretty anti-logo. Speaking of anti-logos, these also come in pink and green, prepsters!

By the way, the tunic/dress is from Daffy's (last year), the belt from Forever 21 (last year), the jeans are pdc from Strawberry (this year) and the gold aviators are from Forever 21 ($5.90, yesterday, love them and they don't dig into your head). This is my favorite "I'm sleeping in because it's my birthday but I've got to get my ass to work sometime so just throw this on" top/dress.

I guess my comment has just lost... I was saying that these shoes are gorgeous! Like you, I dislike "logo showing", but I really have to say that this logo is part of the pattern - Nike did it beautifully! Great!

those Nike sneakers are very colorful and spunky, but I'm not sure if I could pull them off! I'm really short, so it might make my legs look even shorter... lol

You look so relaxed and chic! Those sneakers make me think of break dancing and those shirts from the 80's with the big neon numbers on them. I am with fashion addict though...I am about a foot too short to pull those off!

Well MIss Birthday Girl!
Happy Burfday to you in your stylin' sneaks, which are completely and totally cool on you I might add. Completely. Both myself and Mister Princess send the very best wishes for a gala celebration in honor of the big event!
In honor of the day yours truly recently returned from attempting to be a tad more, well (are you sitting down?), um, well, a trifle more fashion forward as it were! We made *very* few purchases, but I swear I tried on 45+ garments, not to mention almost that many pair of shoes including the wedges (stop laughing please, it is just so not nice) and the 4" spike heels (geeze, I know it's an image from you-know-where, but honestly!) however, we acquired no shoes of any kind, probably because we knew there was simply no way we could measure up to the image you presented tonight and really, why try to compete with that cool of a look?
(Heh-heh-heh! You know I'm kidding with all of this.)
Happy-Happy and have a blast celebrating!

Thanks everyone for all the great comments and birthday wishes! I'm now recovering in the nyc heat from a slightly too fun evening last night- fashion addict I'm linking you up! And TP, how I wish I could have been there! perhaps you need an nyc trip to buy some shoes?!
