Sneakers and Bodega: Cambridge

Meet Oliver of Bodega. Last year I bought a pair of skateboarding sneakers. Oh, how I love 'em. I'll say that I rocked them but apparently it has all been in my mind. You see, each time my sister sees me in them she either says or gives me the look that means: those kicks just don't work.

Sometimes she's right other times I don't listen. The other day, I was trying to create a laid back "I'm not trying, but don't I look great outfit" when she stopped me.

"Those sneakers don't work on you! You need to give it up already."

Mind you, she wasn't exasperated, but firm. I concede her point on that outfit. The problem is that I'm not a quitter. I refuse to give up on my beloved sneakers, even if I have to squirrel them away and wait until I'm 72 to make them work. I'm no quitter!

What about you, have you ever worn something you were convinced was spot on, when in reality, it was just off?

Haha I think I may have a similar situation with sneakers. I'd like to incorporate more sneakers into my life because I want to be comfortable, wear socks for once (since I tend to live in flats these days), and be able to run around if I want!

I have yet to fully delve into the world of sneakers... but Bodega seems to be a good place to start!
