I've been reading it for years now, and you have made some pretty stellar additions to my wardrobe. I'm hoping you can help me find the perfect sneaker. I dress up most days, so my typical shoe is either a bootie, pump, or oxford. However, I've been wanting a cute sneaker to wear on sweatshirt and t-shirt days. I pretty much exclusively wear skinny jeans, so I want them to look great with them. I fell madly in love with the Kate Spade Lorna Sneaker, but I sadly can't find her anywhere. I wear a US size 7.5 or 8, and I'd be willing to spend upwards of $300 for the perfect shoe (but would prefer to stay under $200). I love whimsy and color, but I'd like to be able to pair these shoes with multiple colors/outfits. Will you help me find the perfect sneaker, pretty please? Xoxo Rachel"
Rachel, those sneakers are indeed fabulous. They have glitter, they have stripes, and just when you think they're done, they turn around and flash you that hot pink detail! So cute. I didn't find anything with all those things at once, but hopefully one of these will do the job:
1. Adidas Honey Stripes Mid Shoes ($60)
2. Keds Rally Glitter Toe ($55)
3. Soludos Sandshoe ($55)
4. Fresh Striped High-Tops ($33)
5. Gola Quota Glitter Sneaker ($46)
6. SKECHERS Daddy's Money: Gimme - Starry Skies ($30)
7. Splendid Solvang Lace Up Flat Sneakers ($78)

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
