Happy New Year, Shortys!

How's about my new sneakers??

Would you have ever pictured me in these blinged-out sneaks?? Neither would I - but given that I won a promo code to Ecko - I decided to splurge (wherein splurge equates to "spend $12") on some "ghetto fabulous" duds (and I do not mean this in a derogatory way - per the Urban Dictionary - "Ghetto Fabulous" adj. "Basically, high priced but tacky clothing and accessories") - it was either that or buy VC a new hoodie -for $58 pfffft!

Not only are these babies completely blinged out - but they also have a small - I guess it is a rhino - pendant hanging from the side and a little gem inlayed in the back.


To complete what ended up to be my New Year's Eve outfit, I also ordered a shirt, which I dare not wash - ever - because the sleeves are so narrow I may not be able to fit my arms back in them. (and the shirt was a size medium - not XS).

I received more than a few snickers from a nameless rollerskater about my new blinged out ensemble, particularly the sneakers, since I normally look more like a conservative school marm, but nevertheless, I wore my new outfit to attend VC's New Year's eve juggling gig.
There I bumped into a teacher who I taught with at the same preschool over 7 years ago. She was also VC's 3 year old teacher. She was blown away by his juggling, but even more so by my *ahem* new sneaks!!!! She asked about them not once, but TWICE!!! Now who's settin' the trends???? If I continue to set trends at this breakneck pace, I may soon need my own fashion blog!! ;-)

Hope you all have a healthy and prosperous 2010. I'm a little behind in returning comments but hopefully this weekend....

I love your shoes...or kicks! If I'm going to comment on something ghetto fabulous then I should use the right term.

*They do still call them kicks...don't they?

I cant say that I LOVE your sneakers.. but I am typically behind on the trends, so its safe to say that if I dont like, its probably cool.

Really. I wish I was kidding.

You are WAYYYY cooler then me!

I love the sneakers. I bought a cool pair of skateboarder sneakers and get more compliments on them. My daughter calls me a "poser"... lol.

Love the kicks! And hope you got to get a belly dance or 2 in on New Year's Eve while VC was doin' his thang...

PS: Up in the Air is well-done...and oh, so depressing!

Aunt Juicebox said...

Those are so cute! I bought myself some awesome pink and black vans a couple months ago and they disappeared. Turns out my daughter appropriated them for her own use. Dangit!

Housewife Savant said...

The shoes - eh. The shirt I love.
I have a twelve pound teenage daughter with arms like pipe cleaners. She's always complaining about skinny girls shirts with too tight sleeves.
That'll teach you.
For being skinny.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

OK, now I have sneaker envy... ;)

Happy New Year, Carma!

Kaylen said...

Love the sneakers, especially because of the little silver rhino dangling off the side.
You are just as cute as a button! Your feet look like they are miniature!!

Mommakin said...

Anxiously awaiting your new fashion blog...

Yaya said...

You ARE a trendsetter, Carma! I want those shoes in orange! :)

Tom Bailey said...

You do not look like you need botox... I have never seen shoes like those before. That hand sign used to be for heavy metal only - now it is even for women's shoes? haha

Gay Vaughan said...

Botox?!? Paleeeeze...your blog is too cute!! I teach preschool and the fav snack is Cheeseballs, imagine that!

Thanks for stopping by my lil' ole blog and for the welcome.

Mommyof2girlz said...

Groovewoman said...

I FREAKIN' LOVE the new blinged out shoes! LOVE them!! Wish I had a pair of my own.

Thank you for welcoming me to SITS, it's nice to meet ya. Oh and I've done a little belly dancing too... LOVE IT!!! It is so much fun to do. I wish we still had the class here in town. And my hubby used to do clowning, so he can juggle. I on the other hand, can't seem to do anything remotely close to juggling. So I wish you luck on learning it! :D

Hope to chat with you soon.
