"In the history of fashion, around 1800 to 1840 or 1845, women had flat shoes. Even with a ball gown, they had flat shoes." Who said this? Chanel genius, Karl Lagerfeld, said it in a video interview posted on Chanel's website. In his Spring 2014 Chanel Haute Couture runway show, the models were all sporting sneakers.
Blinged-out sneakers will not be replacing high heels in my repertoire; however, I do like a good sneaker. Especially with my latest crush on fashionable activewear, my scale is tipping toward the comfort cool of the sneaker in everyday wear.

I'm gaga over Tory Burch's simple, white soled quilted uppers in basic navy or pale green. The pairing with a dress feels easy and fresh.
