Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: I have a Converse/Chuck Taylor Obsession

I have a Converse/Chuck Taylor Obsession

12:00 AM

Pants:  Levi // Shoes:  Converse

So I might have this slight obsession with Converse.  I have A LOT of converse.  I’ve loved them ever since I was in high school.  I remember my first pair, they were pink high tops that were later passed down to one of my brother’s really close friends at the time.  I’m not going to lie though, I wish I kept them.  Then I moved on to other colors and fabrics like velour ones and I even had my “concert converse.”  Now, these were super special.  They were regular black and white converse but they had been signed by people from my favorite band in the front where the white is covering the toes.  I also drew on them like your typical punk rock kid and I loved those converse.  They were the greatest shoes ever. 

The only problem is, now I can’t find where those converse went to.  I probably put them in a safe place and forgot what that safe place was.  Does anyone else do that?

Anywho, these I got for my birthday from my boyfriend’s family.  I love that they have the Day of the Dead sugar skulls on them.  If you missed my Halloween series, I featured both of my Day of the Dead Halloween looks from last year as well.

    On the blog today, I'm tackling something literally "borrowed from the boys", i.e., an item of clothing I took from my husband's wardrobe. Come on over and see how I (and four other women of all ages) styled pieces we, ahem, borrowed from the men in our lives.
