All Stars

I am back after a brief period offline. Just moved into a new apartment and just got the internet up and running so Ican finally get back to blogging ! 
Here is an outfit post I wanted to share with you from a Sunday trip I took a couple of weeks ago. I paired my denim shorts with this burgandy, sheer, shirt and Converse for a laid back, different take on American cool. I have to admit I only recently acquired my Converse, August to be exact. I had never considered them a personal style choice but now I see them as a fashion staple ! 
My sister Claudia has two pairs and with her skinny, long, legs, she even manages to pull off the high top ones. I however stuck to the classic white sneaker ,when it came to my purchase. I love them with any denim, both skinny jeans and short shorts.
Claudia has even gone so far as to design her own ones online. She chose everything from the colours, style and even has her name on them,(smart considering her sisters are always stealing her style!)
The Converse All Star shoe was originally introduced as a basketball shoe in 1917 being renamed the Chuck Taylor in  1923 after basketball player and salesman Charles H. Taylor and since then has been a favourite with both sports and rock stars alike.
What was the deciding factor in me finally coming around to these COMFORTABLE!! fashion footwear......recommendation of my boyfriend....I guess sometimes he's right !!
