Chucks!

Yet another item checked of the Summer Hit List - the red high top Converse Chuck Taylors!

This has been a long time coming - I have dreamt of the red canvas shoes with the star patch for a long time, but for some reason hadn't turned over the cash to purchase them. All it took was purchasing a (never worn yet) dress at the thrift store down the road. Immediately, an idea popped in my head - pairing this (not worn just yet) dress with high top red sneakers.

That's what did me in, I began scouring the cheapest way to purchase brand new chucks - it came down to an Ebay seller who sells them for half the price.

Now I just have to live out my dream.

GO Halos

I'm so jealous that you scored this skirt. The peter pan collar is so adorable with the checkered pattern. It's very Jan Brady with a touch of Mia Farrow from Rosemary's Baby (pre-baby of course).

to me, the red hightops and headwrap really make this outfit amazing. I would love a headwrap like that! Yay buffalo plaid :D

I've been dreaming about red high top chucks too but have the same "seem to not have brought them yet" dilemma. I have an outfit idea that i'm busting to try out when i do finally get them though - yay for red chucks!!
