Almost 10 years ago, I first got a pair of Converse in jeans material from my boy friend (who was later promoted to my husband). The fun thing is he got me 2 size up. I guess we hadn't been close enough for him to know my shoe size. So, I could only wear the shoes in the winter when I needed to double my socks. A week ago, my sister-in-law gave me a birthday gift to pick up something in my long-time wish list. I want a pair of comfortable shoes but not a ballerina. So I chose a pair of white Converse because I know I would have a lot of wear out of it. I'm so excited when she came in today. You might see me pairing these shoes with a lot of things, including culottes, which I talked in the previous post.
