Styling Challenge: The Converse All Star!

When I told the sales assistant at the Converse store that this was my first ever pair, she was nearly as shocked as when I told her there was no way the adult shoes would fit me and that I had to try on the kid's ones, (I got the kid's ones). I actually got them for work but even then I had prolonged buying them. This made me wonder, why had I been resisting them for so long? Was it that everyone else has a pair? That they looked too sporty? This outfit was built around reinventing the way I think of Converse, it was a really interesting but challenging styling mission that I set for myself!

  2. I am wearing Converse since in elementary school,but now I wear it only for quite sometimes. I know they're too comfort, that's why I like to wear it even when I wear a skirt.. :p

    btw,love your sequin skirt so much! <3

  3. Really nice, the sequined skirt is a nice combination with the sporty look of your top and the shoes. And I have not had a pair since I was a child so youre not the only one without Converse

  6. Hey :D
    You have to try the Dior Addict Lipsticks, they are so creamy but not too much (:

    Nice outfits that you have! I'm a new reader (:
    I love Converse, but I have to buy a new pair. Mine's way too old ;D

  7. The outfit is so lovely! I like how you matched such different things!

  8. I don't know which fact amuses me more: that fact that you wear kids' size, or the fact that you're nestling up quite comfortably against that statue's bum. Either way, I like it all.

  12. I firmly believe in the power of Converse shoes. I think they can go anywhere and do (almost) anything. I love how you did the bow tie, too! Very cool look.

  45. Mission accomplished! I only had one pair of converse so far, and they were the most different pair I could get my hands on back when! I liked them, but they didn't quite suit my style and I don't think them to be the most comfortable sneakers either...
