But these ones...
We have had a long relationship, and my first converse have been really faithful to me, traveling several continents and walking the streets of numerous cities. But nothing lasts forever (at least not shoes) and with holes beyond repair, I had to let them go. It was a hard decision, but it had to be done.
Lucky me, a few days after parting with my Chucks, I went to a flea market and found some great lined vintage black leather boots in my size. That sounds like something I can wear when winter comes along. New Converse will have to wait till spring.
As you might understand, I have a tendency to keep things for a little too long, so perhaps I should take these closet space tips from Katie to heart. Check them out for a tidier wardrobe, and a generally inspiring blog.
