After fruitlessly attempting for about 6 months to track down the original Ann Demeulemeester version of these lace up shoes on eBay, I gave in and bought the Free People version instead, and I’m SO glad I did! While every fashion-loving lass and their dog might own some variation of these lace up beauties, I couldn’t resist having a pair too. I can see why they are so dam popular; seriously comfortable, stylish and super leg lengthening they are the perfect addition to my (and everyone else’s) shoe-drobe.

To counteract wearing such an on-trend shoe I’ve made sure to pair them with thrifted and vintage items that I can be fairly certain no one else will be wearing. My floral 80s-does-40s dress and vintage tasselled jacket are pretty unique, so I feel quietly confident that while everyone might own a variation of my shoes, no one is going to be waltzing around in this outfit.

How do you feel about wearing ultra-on-trend items that everyone appears to own? As much as I like to steer clear of wearing what everyone else is, sometimes I just can’t resist a trend no matter how prolific it is!

  1. I don't mind if an item is popular or not as long as I love it but I do tend to put my own spin on whatever it is - it's rare I'm wearing top to toe "on trend" !
