As I type this, the sun is out and I am wearing a little frock with bare legs, and all the girls in London have blossomed, like flowers. But at the time I took this - almost a month ago now - when I met Estelle for a coffee and chat, it was cold and we were still trying to find ways of staying cheerful. And pops of hot pink or red were the best way.
Can I ask: what is up with Converse Chucks at the moment? EVERYONE is wearing them. I have two pair - one were vintage when I bought them, back in the 20th century (my navy pair) and I bought a new cream pair about 7 years ago. I love them. And they've never really gone off trend, but for some reason.. I mean, yesterday, in the rain, I saw two unrelated girls pass by within minutes, both wearing little floral dresses, black tights, red Chucks.
I love the way Estelle re-works elements of her wardrobe all the time. I've seen her with that red clutch before. She doesn't spend a lot of money - she's really proud of that - but these new customised pair are brilliant. Converse have some kind of creative customising program, check it out.
It's funny: here everyone calls them Chucks (for Chuck Taylor) but in the States, we just call them Converse. CONVERSE.CO.UK. Whatever you call them, all I want to know is: what's your colour(s) and how do YOU wear them?
