Strolling Down Memory Lane in my Pink Cons

These shoes are so cool that they need their own post!

My New Kicks

Yesterday, I got these shoes at a great sale at Bancroft Clothing in Berkeley. In my previous post I said that I bought them because they were on sale. In all honesty though I bought them because they took me straight back to some good high school memories. (The sale did help though! )

When I was in High School, my dad took us to this new discount store in Stockton called Marshall's. We didn't have one in Modesto then. It was so cool. You could get all kinds of name brand stuff at better prices than the regular stores. (When you are in high school, those name brands are really important!) My folks bought all of us kids some great stuff on that shopping trip. My favorite items though were two pair of high top Converse shoes. I got a pink pair and a light purple pair. I thought that I was SO cool because I owned those shoes. I planned my outfits around those shoes. I LOVED wearing them to school and showing them off. I tried to push the fashion envelope too by wearing mixing the colors up by wearing one pink and one purple shoe. I just knew that I was styling and you couldn't tell me that I wasn't! :-)

When I saw these shoes on the sale rack yesterday, I felt like I was 16 again. I knew that I was going to buy them as soon as I saw them. I have to admit, I did look on that sale rack for a pair or purple ones too but alas, they only had neon orange and an ugly blue. Oh well ... the pink pair will work out just fine.

I was just thinking about you. I was wondering if someone (won't say who) read your blog and then carried you away in the middle of the night never to be heard from again!
Glad to see that you are still around. I will hop over to you site right now and see what's going down!!!

I'm a big fan of Marshall's!
My little sister has that exact pair of pink cons and they're falling apart.

Hot pink, huh? I also wanted the Punky Brewster look... one green and the other converse yellow. :)

Cons are cool and so comfortable it is almost like going barfoot. OH! thanks for stopping by my blog and feel free to come back.
