"Wanna Fall Into Your Super Love"

Summer's not over yet and you've still got time to wear your jellies around, or order some on sale if you haven't already! I got my clear glitter pair on amazon because places like American Apparel jack the price of these simple plastic shoes way up. I paired them with a simple white dress that can be made fancier or more casual depending on how you style it and where you wear it. 

I've been wishing I could find a pair of 'vintage' (they're barely old enough to be called that) jellies from the 1990's for the past few summers and then they came back on the market recently! Both heeled and flat jellies in all colors have been all of the rage in the city this summer with the hip, downtown and Brooklyn crowd. I've seen some of them wear them with socks which I'm not a fan of when it comes to jellies, though shoes and socks can look adorable when done in a more chic way a la Anna Sui. I typically like slightly thinner heels as well, but this style doesn't have too high of a heel, and it works with the chunky style. However I don't recommend much higher of a super chunky heel if you're going to do it in a modern way or you'll look like an outdated kid from the 90's, or someone from Austin Powers! A couple re-popularized 90's trends have been in stores and on streets each year lately so we'll see what fashion brings to us next! I think that in the future, people are going to be very confused with which pieces are from what time period if they go thrift shopping.
