Alicia Keys x Reebok

It looks like the sultry songstress, Alicia Keys, is flexing her fashion muscles.  She has collaborated with the classic shoe company to create Alicia Keys x Reebok.  A collection that embodies her ultimate New Yorker urban vibe. When I first heard she was partnering with Reebok, I was a little surprised.  Reeboks were so popular in the 80’s and early 90’s, but then they kind of fell off the grid.  I sort of pictured her pairing up with Puma or Adidas, but if anyone can bring Reebok back to life, it will probably be her.

You can definitely see her influence in the design of the shoes.  They remind me of the raw, edgy, New York girl Alicia was when she was first introduced to the music world.  Urban, but not ghetto.  A trendsetter, but not trendy.

I have to admit that I’m pretty happy that the fashion world is still in love with wedge sneakers. They are perfect for pairing with my yoga/bar fitness outfits during the cooler months.  They’re also perfect for travel and sightseeing in style.

My faves are the navy and the tan pair.  Which ones do you like? Are you feeling Alicia’s collection?

What I Wore: Alicia Keys Concert

Last week was my husband’s birthday and I had the pleasure of surprising him with tickets to the Alicia Keys concert!  It was so rewarding seeing the ecstatic look on his face when he opened his birthday card :-) He also really enjoys Miguel’s music so it was a bonus that he was opening for Alicia Keys.  I knew I would be doing a lot of walking and dancing so I decided to wear my wedge sneakers for comfort.  Instead of pairing them with my usual skinny jeans or leggings, I opted to try a fitted dress and blazer.  What do you think?

Shoe Review: Steve Madden Wedge Sneakers

I just love these sneakers.  I purchased them back in August from Nordstrom.  This was at the start of the wedge sneaker craze and I’m overjoyed the trend has followed into this spring.  They are the epitome of sporty chic and they look good with so many different outfits.  I’ve worn them with jeans, leggings, and even skirts.  The best part is that I can add some height to my 5’2″ frame and still be so comfortable.
