Aren't these the coolest shoes? I am so excited! Sparkly silver space age Chucks. I found them on super clearance at the Gap (of all places) for $9.97. Such a bargain. They were regular price $60. I am not sure what I am going to wear them with, but I couldn't pass them up. I think pretty much anything. They would be cool with a dressier outfit... like a skirt or a party dress. I can't wait to wear them.

I love my Chucks. I've been wearing them for half of my life. In high school I wore black high tops and my beloved black one-stars. They're just such classic shoes and always so comfortable. I can wear them for 8 hours at work and my feet never hurt. If the stopped making Chucks, I'd be very, very, very sad. I can't think of anything else that I still like from high school. They're also the one thing that I don't really mind if everyone wears. Usually, this makes me mad, but with Chucks, I just don't care. And they're my thing. My trademark shoe that I now own in silver. Hooray!

Very fancy . . . !

Speaking of chucks, I should give you the cream ones with the orange embroidery that I have -- they are too small for me and pinch my toes! You have smaller feet than I, correct?

Also, I don't know what made me think of this this instant, but do you still have my copy of "Almost Famous?" I've been wanting to watch it lately. I can bike over and pick it up? Email me and let me know when would be a good time!

Hmmmm... I am pretty much working all weekend. I'll email you my schedule and we can go from there.
