Trends are a funny thing; there are new ones starting up so frequently, some last for many seasons, while others are hardly picked up by the general population. Most seasons I find myself loving certain trends, but I don't really jump on board, or as a budget shopper I find myself finding pieces I'm still in love with, for a deal, a little later. Growing as a stylist I find myself wanting to experiment with trends more, and buying lower priced knock-offs is a fun way to do it and not break the bank. Paired with key, quality pieces the right replica can look fantastic!
Yesterday I jumped on board and tried out the Birkenstock trend; I briefly remember this happening when I was a kid, but didn't carry out my days in them. Some are completely despising that this flat, casual sandal has made a come back, but I'll say after a day in my $16 pair from Payless, I'm loving them. Comfortable is probably the biggest selling point, and I think the t-strap silhouette is slightly chicer than the traditional double strap. Sincerely Jules, I'm right there with you and loving that the Birks are in fact back.
