My Shoes Are Talking
I am a Chuck Taylor, All-Star kind of girl. Converse are my shoe. They're classically cool and "tuff". The 1950s are my my favorite decade. The Outsiders, baseball, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and bobbie socks, getting pinned on the school bus, leather jackets, Conrade Birdie, Marilyn Monroe, Rock 'n Roll, Elvis, the Jitterbug. And the love of my life, James Dean. High tops are the kind of shoe that never go out of style. They tell stories from the past. Not only are chucks made out of canvas, but they are also a canvas for me. As you can see, I like to write on my cons. I write words or phrases on my shoes that have meaning to me. It might be complete jibberish to someone else but for me, nothing is on accident. Everything has a meaning. My shoes talk about who I am.
So pay attention! If you're trying to find out about a person, look at their shoes. People can talk with more than their mouths.
Have a rockin' Wednesday!
