My little man got his first pair of Chucks today. For those that don't have a pair of Chucks, or Converse, it's a pivotal moment.
I can remember my first like it was yesterday. Year 10 farewell, I wore a long blue linen dress with my Chucks. Oh so cool, ouch, it hurts.
Then I went on to have a torrid love affair with a pale blue pair of Chucks. Mmm. Sweet love. But it wasn't to last. After a few years we parted ways, my Chucks started looking a little too scruffy. My next affair was with a hot pink (I'm talking Flamingo) hi-tops. I loved those babies.
And then we too parted ways. And I was infatuated with a navy pair. Classic. Understated. But the passion was still there. We travelled to London and Paris in the thick of winter. We weren't a compatible couple at this time. My Chucks kept getting rained on. Cold. They weren't a good partner for my wintery travels, but we came home, sorted things out, and still the love keeps growing (thankfully my foot does not).
So now I am passing this passion on to my little dude. Already he's in love. They're sleeping next to his bed.
If you click over here, you can design your own Chucks. Now that's what I call lurve.
