Don’t hate me because I had to share my dream shoes with you. If you’re reading MBB, chances are you’re a makeup junkie too, and I doubt you’re walking around barefoot when you go to Sephora “just to look around.”
So, since I’m assuming that you’re a makeup lover who also wears shoes, I thought you might feel the need (yes, need) TO OWN SHOES WITH A MAKEUP PRINT ON THEM. 🙂
That’s what I told myself when I walked out of DSW with these makeup print Vans ($49.95) the other night. “I gotta get these so I’m not walking around barefoot at Sephora!”
Probably not… But I couldn’t leave without them.
I’m dying over the print! There are lipsticks, an eyelash curler, A KABUKI BRUSH, liquid liner, mascara and…what is that? Is that a pot of Chanel cream shadow?? Or maybe MAC Fluidline from the side? There’s also a pan of blush, bottles of nail polish and, OMG, pearls! There are even pearls!!!
Seriously, this could be the greatest print that has ever graced a pair of Vans.
Oh, and it’s also available online in a sassy high top style and, yes girl, they’re hella cute.
I should probably start dropping Valentine’s Day hints for El Hub.
Anywho, the thing about Vans…they aren’t the lightest shoes. They’re canvas with a stiffer sole and low arches. I have several pairs, and if you need arch support like I do, it helps to slip an insert into those bad boys before you go cruising around town with your cat.
This particular pair runs big. I tried both the 7s and the 6 1/2s, and the 6 1/2s fit a little bit better, but I left with the 7s because I like the extra wiggle room for my loooong monkey toes.
If I wear them without socks, the heel slips out, but yeah, they fit fine with socks.
Just FYI again, but Vans are a heavier tennis shoe, so if you’re used to wearing lighter shoes like TOMS slip-ons or Keds, it’s going to feel like your feet are clomping down — Clomp! Clomp! Clomp! — at first. You’ll get used to them.
Oh, and not that you needed another excuse to go completely cray over these, but they should go with a lot of outfits.
Yeah, that might just be me trying to justify an impulse purchase… It’s true, though! They’re neutral, so they go with everything.
Get thee to DSW ASAP if you want to make your makeup shoe fantasies come true. I’m not gonna stop you. 🙂
