Songful Style: Hi-Heel Sneakers by Tommy Tucker

hi-heel sneakers

Welcome to our third Songful Style post! Hosted by myself, Shelbee (Shelbee on the Edge), Michelle (My Bijou Life), Marsha (Marsha in the Middle) and Anne (Spy Girl), Songful Style is a brand new collaboration featuring outfits inspired by songs. We’re also inviting anyone who would like to join us, to post their own outfits in the link-up below. It doesn’t matter from what angle the song inspires the outfit, it can be from the lyrics, the tune itself, the album cover, music video, etc. Last month, our song was Leather and Lace by Stevie Nicks. Our third Songful Style song was chosen by Michelle and is Hi-Heel Sneakers by Tommy Tucker.

Hi-heel sneakers? Who wears hi-heel sneakers? That was my initial thought when I heard this month’s Songful Style choice. How on earth am I going to style that? But then I read the lyrics and everything changed…

Hi-Heel Sneakers by Tommy Tucker

Put on your red dress, baby
Ya know we're goin' out tonight
Put on your red dress, baby
Lord, we're goin' out tonight
And-a bring along some boxin' gloves
In case some fool might wanna fight

Put on your high-heel sneakers, lordy
Wear your wig-hat on your head
Put on your high-heel sneakers, child
Wear your wig-hat on your head
Ya know you're looking mighty fine, baby
I'm pretty sure you're gonna knock 'em dead

Put on your red dress, baby
Lord, we're goin' out tonight
Put on your red dress, baby
Well, we're goin' out tonight
And bring along some boxin' gloves
'case some fool might wanna fight

Put on your high-heel sneakers, child
Wear your wig-hat on your head now
Put on your high-heel sneakers, baby
Wear your wig-hat on your head
Ya know you're looking mighty good, really
I'm pretty sure you're gonna knock 'em dead

So then it became more about the red dress, as well as sneakers that could be worn to dance in. Hm? Well, I own two red dresses. One is long and floaty, off the shoulder. Super pretty but just not right for this theme. And the other is the one I decided to go with. I bought it a few years ago and, if memory serves me correctly, it was from a thrift shop. Again, it’s a really pretty dress but one that shows every lump and bump lol. But I felt I could go dancing in it…providing I wore something underneath because the sleeves had a tendency to fall off my shoulders.

So what footwear did I choose instead of shopping for hi-heel sneakers? Well…they had to be sneakers, of course. And, to go dancing, they had to be sparkly. So, that left two options: my sequinned Converse All-Stars or my Vans. I went with the latter because the all-stars are hi-tops and they cut off my legs, making me look even more stumpy. I added a gold clutch, a yellow necklace and a gold bangle and I was all set to go out on the town! I didn’t go out on the town though…bummer. Maybe next time?!

Shop the look

Will you join us this month? If so, please don’t forget to add your outfits (Instagram posts or blog posts) in the link-up below. And if you’d like to join us next month, Marsha has chosen the song, Hello, Goodbye by the Beatles. That should be fun (off to google what that song is because I have no idea….I’m sure I’ll know it when I hear it though lol).

    OMG, Suzy, what a fun outfit! I am loving your gold Vans so much paired with the gold clutch! And this red dress is magnificent. What a fabulous thrift shop find! Your photos are super fun, too. I wanna go dancing with you!

    I love this interpretation of the song, Suzy! The gold sparkly sneakers are adorable with the red dress. And you do look ready to dance. So much awesomeness!

    If that dress shows every lump and bump, then I didn’t see them. You either chose your photos very carefully, or there aren’t many lumps and bumps. I love the dress. If you want to do something about the falling sleeves, use fashion tape. I glue every garment to my body with these two-sided adhesive tapes. So handy.
