A Tomboy Way To Wear Mary Janes

How to wear Mary Janes

First thing I'm going to say is: Thank goodness for vintage!!! I've been looking for the right bright red shoe for casual looks, but I never imagined that I was going to find them in a Mary Jane style.
 I'm a fan of Prada shoes (on sale, of course) and I've been drooling all over those images of their sweet Mary Janes from their Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection since Spring. So, as soon I saw these shoes I knew they had to be mine. The price was like "hello, we're almost free" and the condition almost mint, despite their age. Now that I have my own affordable vintage (1960's) version of Prada shoes, it's time to put them to good use.
This is the first time wearing them, so in order to create a fun juxtaposition with these girly shoes, I wore them with a pair of cropped raw hem jeans and a boyish plaid shirt.
You see, I managed to stay away from looking like a school girl on her way to class or like Dorothy in Wizard of Oz, following the yellow brick road…lol.


Que dicha que existen las prendas y atuendos de moda de era!!! He estado buscando hace mucho tiempo un par de zapatillas de color rojo encendido para ponérmelas con conjuntos casuales, pero nunca me imaginé que las hiba a encontrar en el estilo Mary Jane.
  Yo soy un fanática de los zapatos de Prada (en rebajas, por supuesto) y he estado babeando encima de todas las imagines donde salen los Mary Janes en su colección de otoño 2015. Por eso tan pronto vi estos zapatos en la tienda, sabía que tenían que venirse conmigo. El precio casi gritaba" Hola, casi somos gratis" y se veían como nuevos a pesar de que fueron hechos muchas décadas atrás. Ahora que tengo mi propia versión de los zapatos de Prada ya no me queda mas que darles un buen uso.
Esta es la primera vez que me pongo estas zapatillas y con el fin de crear una yuxtaposición divertida, me las puse con un par de pantalones vaqueros y una camisa masculina cuadriculada.
Ya ves, me las arreglé para no verme como una niña de escuela en su camino a clase ó como Dorothy en la película de Wizard of Oz, siguiendo el camino de ladrillos amarillos … jajaja
