Meet the most over-the-top sneakers we’ve ever seen: “I know these sneakers are kinda silly. They say things like ‘I love pizza pasta and music,’ and 'So fab!’ on them, and yet, it’s the exact right kind of Italian maximalism that I totally get behind. They are, you could say, coo coo bananas, and should only be worn with a cleavage-y printy floaty Dolce dress (and a crown!). They’re also unbelievably expensive, which makes me want them that much more. In order to afford these sneakers, I’d have to give up my cell phone plan for about seven months—meaning I wouldn’t even be able to show them off on Instagram. And if you can’t put them on the 'gram, do you even really own them?” — @lapantin #livingofframen

“I know pool slides have been a *thing* for a while, but these @chanel sandals are better, prettier, fancier and more wonderful than any I’ve seen in the past. I just got back from a trip to Hanalei Bay in Kauai and I wish I had packed these. They’re so cute, I’d forgo classes at current fave, Bari Studio, in order to make them mine. Sorry tush."—@lapantin #livingofframen 📷: @alec_kugler http://ift.tt/2jLpq6c

“Even in the rain, Cape Town is beautiful. The ocean and the coastline are so wild here that fog only makes it that much more mysterious and appealing.” - @lapantin, this week’s featured instagrammer #capetown (at Cape Town, South Africa)

“@Babylonstoren is a hotel, restaurant, and working farm
about an hour outside of Cape Town, in Paarl. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been - everything about the garden is given so much thought. And the food is killer!” - @lapantin, this week’s featured instagrammer #southafrica #takemethere (at Babylonstoren)
