It all started with a picture of a pair of Céline slip-on sneakers. I became obsessed, daydreaming about them, night dreaming about them, wondering if I could ever possibly justify the spend. Not to brag but I am the best at justifying, especially when it comes to shoe shopping and yet, no matter how I spun it, there was zero way I could blow $600 on glorified VANS.
I heard Gap had knock-offs but by the time I sped my way to the store, they were completely sold out. A friend tweeted that she saw a similar pair at ALDO. One pair left, in a size 6. Gutted. Ahh, but then, I came across these amazing leopard Converse All-Stars and all of the crushing disappointment became a distant memory. Only $55, equally cool and now, happily, mine. I've changed the white laces up for black ones but they're amazing either way. These are also awesome if you're not the leopard type.
Go on. It's Friday. You deserve it.
