Is this where I pop in to say I've worn Converse (or an approximation there of) for more years than I am going to admit?
I'll give you a hint though... my first pair were yellow with ecology signs!
Right now I'm on a hunt for a rainbow colored pair I saw on a young woman a year or so ago...
I LOVE the red ones.
So, if they fit you, and are comfortable on you, get them! Do it up, put on the attitude and have a grand time!
Oh, and Dawn? What's up with the sigh! 44? You're beautiful and age is truly only a number so don't let me see that sigh "no more" got it?
