Buy of the week

welcome to my weekly instalment of buy of the week.

for a while now I've been thinking of getting a pair of converse lace ups. I know they aren't the most fashionable item but I've seen a few people (and celebs like Nicole Richie) rockin' them and thought I should give it a try.

I also thought it might encourage me to ride my retro-look bike a bit more (hasn't worked yet).

it's pretty ain't it?

I found a pair of converse at Amart all sports normally priced at $89.95 but going out for a bargain price of ten buckaroonies and my dreams were answered. Sweet deal or what?!

Did anyone try and get every colour in these slip ons back in the day? I look at them now and cringe a little.

Between my twinnie and I I reckon we had at least six pairs. I also had a pair of blue one stars at school and I took such pride in decorating them with glitter and puff paint. Oh those were the days.

Remember, I'd love you to join me  - what was your best buy of the week?


  1. Hehe I had that exact pair. I cringe now too!!

  2. God old converse! Love the new blog, looks fabulous. Where did you get your layout? A new layout for 2012 could be a good idea. Xxx

  3. That bike is adorable! My buy of the week has to be a vintage leather suitcase. I am now following your blog :)


  4. Your bike is so gorgeous, and I love Cons. I hope they motivate you to ride your bike more.

  5. Converse are my all time favourite :)
    Love your new blog!
    I also started a new blog as I dint like the old 1's title
    Maybe we could follow each other?

  6. I love vintage looking bicycles. My husband & I bought some a year ago and we ride them on our little picnics! I totally forgot converse had those slip ons!!! HA! I had a red pair that I wore everywhere!
