'Be Innocent of The Knowledge, Dearest Chuck'


My first attempt at shooting this outfit was met by an onslaught of sneezing, followed by the annoyance of watery, itchy eyes so, alas, I had to abort and go inside. Here's me on my couch pissed that allergy season isn't over yet. 
My next attempt was two days later, and after being inspired by some of you ladies showing off your Chuck's, I decided to forgo the JC Suebees, dig through my closet, pull mine out of their box and go with them instead!

What color are your Chuck's? And are you a high-top or low-top kinda girl or go you both ways?

 







What I'm Wearing:
Top: Alice & Olivia
        Orig. Price: $195.00
         Paid: $53.00
Bow Skirt:  Forever21
Belt: UO
Necklaces: Tiffany's, Hawaii Name Plate, Forever21
Rings: Carol Marie Dome Ring - Free People
            Orig. Price: $98
            Paid: $44
            Lucky Star Fish
           YSL Arty
Metallic Converse

A BIG howdy do to all my new readers!
Loving the love, the love, the love!!



Met up with Marcela of Times Like Mine and her fiance when they were in the city a couple of weeks ago.  Even though it was only for an hour, since that's all the time my job would allow, we had a great time getting to know each other a little better!  It's great meeting the person behind the blog, and I especially LOVE meeting out-of-town bloggers! And she brought me a big bag of gummy bears and a box of chocolates from Germany...which I devoured as soon as I got home :)  Thanks, Marcela!!

About a week before meeting up with Marcela, I was in H&M (just browsing, mind you) on a lunch break when I got a tap on my shoulder! I turned around and there was Jerrica of Fashion Nostalgia. It was soooo fun and exciting to meet her like that!

And finally, I'd like to thank Joice of Love Joice for awarding me the Kreativ and Versatile Blog Awards!  Check out her blog ladies and show her some love!

  29. That indoor shot is great! You have a beautiful home. My chucks are black sequins...I call them my sparklechucks. I love them but someone lied to all of us by tricking everyone into thinking that Chuck T's are comfy. They really are not.
