chuck Taylors

i just completed this for a company in London.  I got to talk about style, and model some Converse- not too painful. :)

How would you describe your style? 

Comfy, casual, cool.
My go-to outfit at the moment is a black Alexander Wang T dress, consignment lame leggings, and vintage 9west lace-up field boots. I also love jewelry; my favorite is a full-finger armor ring I scored on Ebay. I rarely buy new- I stick to vintage and re-sale shops- much more selection, plus you’re making the eco-friendly choice.

How do you think your style has changed in the last year?

Less trend, more classics. I’ve down-sized my wardrobe considerably in the last year. I finally let go of things I clearly did not wear and now have some favorite key pieces I love to mix and match with my favorite accessories and shoes.

What influences your style and who are your style icons?

I'm drawn to natural things. I grew up rural Minnesota, we were influenced little by media, and style was something we found from within. I also come from a fashionable line of women- my mother and grandmothers have a very Town & Country appeal and have influenced my personal taste- it'd be rare for me not to be wearing something I was passed down. My influences have created a mix of boho nomad with chic, classic, I love it.

What do you think of Converse?

The converse chuck taylors are classic. I've owned a few pairs, but I'm very partial to my denim blue high-tops. Being 5'9, I usually wear flats and I love that I can mix converse in and out of my wardrobes as easily as my moccasins or sandals.

What would you do if you ran Converse for a day?

I'd pull a Tom's Shoes and for every converse purchased, a pair would go someone who needs them, esp. people in Chile or Haiti.
